Package Overview:

Mount Kenya has been thought and held in reverence by the local communities as God`s residence. The snow on the peaks astonished the explorers who could not figure out its existence right at the equator. The roads were initially dug for the military purpose to help access the forest to flush out Maumau freedom fighters. The mountain has not escaped the attention of notable filmmakers who shot awarding cinemas and documentaries. {Nowhere in Africa, The Night Climbers of Cambridge, No Picnic on Mt. Kenya are just but a few.} Book writers have also written with some best-selling titles "The Ascent" Mt. Kenya was recognized as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and later to UNESCO World Heritage Site. Mt Kenya is regarded as the most visually stunning of the ice-capped African peaks and is home to a great diversity of wildlife, including leopard, elephant and buffalo. The ascent is an exhilarating and diverse trek, with relatively few hikers compared to Kilimanjaro. Many would argue that Mount Kenya, whilst not being as high as Kilimanjaro, is certainly the more enjoyable, interesting and dramatic of the two mountains.
