Mount Kenya Trek and Safari

Trek in Dr. Seuss-like Landscapes & Walk up Point Lenana

Set against a mag­i­cal back­drop along with a non-tech­ni­cal ascent, it’s hard to imag­ine a more intrigu­ing trek. The hike out the Gorges Val­ley on the Chogo­ria route is spec­tac­u­lar — from high moun­tain envi­ron­ment, all the way down to the sub-trop­i­cal zone where ele­phants, Cape buf­fa­lo, and much more roam. Par­tic­i­pants com­plete this Africa adven­ture with a safari to the Sweet­wa­ter Reserve, which includes a Jane Goodall sanc­tu­ary for chim­panzees, and the Sam­bu­ru Nation­al Reserve.
