Hiking Up Dragon’s Teeth and Satima in the Northern Moorlands of the Aberdares

Ol Donyo Le  Satima popularly known as Mt. Satima is the 3rd largest mountain in Kenya standing at approximately 4000m ASL is the immediate neighbor to a number of sharp volcanic cones called “the Dragon’s Teeth”. Dragon’s Teeth is a sporadic spread of jagged rocks that rise above the consistently wet moorlands in Northern Aberdares. Join us as we take on this scenic hike on the Moorland.

Expedition Itinerary

Day One

The drive up the mountain is slow but scenic as the tropical rain forest gives way to the moorland vegetation.

The hike starts here with some of the most beautiful rock formations in Kenya. They include the Lost Pyramid, Muirs Massive, Weathering Heights, Devil’s Sword, Theater of Heaven, and finally the Dragons Teeth with stunning rock formations. After a short rest Bank east towards the high ridges and head towards Satima peak to arrive late in the afternoon. Descend back to the starting point and drive a short distance to Lala Nasi Lodge in Nyahururu for the night.
