THE EASIEST WAY TO GET TO THE LENANA PEAK ON MT. KENYA

Mt. Kenya is one of the few remaining Tropical mountains remaining with an ice pack. Despite Global warming, there has been an increase in the amount of snow at the top albeit temporary. The park also has a new road built for access and rescue purposes and this further helps us offer a shorter itinerary for the busy working hiker.

Day 1: Nairobi – Old Moses (3,300m) – Shiptons Camp(4,200m)

Pick up from Nairobi at 0400hrs and drive north to Nanyuki town. After a short stop, drive to the park gate at Sirimon for check-in. After processing our entries we drive up the Tropical rainforest to the start of the Moorland zone at Old Moses. From here we prepare our packs and set off for Shipton’s camp, 14km away. The hike is scenic and takes you through two ridges before hiking on the Mackinder’s valley with great views of the peak.

Arrive at Shipton’s camp late in the afternoon for dinner and rest.

Day 2: Shiptons – Summit – Out to Nairobi
Wake up in the early morning hours of the night. After hot tea and snacks, hike to Lenana peak before turning back to Shipton’s camp for proper Breakfast. After breakfast descend to Old Moses camp from where the Transport to take you back to Nairobi will be waiting for you.
