Hike Description

Mount Kipipiri is connected to the Aberdare range and stands tall with an elevation of 3,349 AMSL. Mount Kipipiri is an isolated Volcano in the Wanjohi Valley, on the Kinangop Plateau near to the Aberdare Range. It is about 32 km northeast of Lake Naivasha, which is visible from the summit. Wildlife includes Colobus and Sykes monkeys, elephants and buffalo, and abundant birdlife. The name of the mountain means “butterfly” in the Gikuyu language, a reference to its profile from a distance. The Mount Kipipiri Forest Reserve is part of the Aberdare National Park. In 2005 it was estimated that the 43 square Kilometres forest reserve was home to about 13 elephants.
This hike will take you through dense forest, heath, and moorland vegetation with the peak almost on a bare rock surface with little high altitude vegetation. The walk up is long but beautiful landscapes will surely reward you. The plan is to start early to ensure we arrive back in the city early in the evening hours.
The hike up is long but the descent is via a shorter route on the Ndunyu Njeru side
