Mt Kenya, Kenya

Mount Kenya, Africa’s 2nd highest mountain at 5,199 meters, is a spectacular massif towering above the rainforest jungles of central Kenya.

Kenya based on participants experience – Point Lenana at 4,985 meters is suitable for strong hikers without any climbing experience, while Batian (5,199 meters) and Nelion (5,189 meters) summits offer more challenging climbing routes.
