5 Days/ 4 nights Mount Kenya-Naro Moru Route

MOUNT KENYA CLIMBING: NARO MORU ROUTE

Explore Mount Kenya and discover Africa 's second highest mountain. With a summit covered in snow and ice it's difficult to imagine that it's situated astride the equator!

Mount Kenya has plenty of wildlife to view, particularly on the lower slopes of the mountain. You can expect to see elephant, rhino, buffalo leopard, bush buck, several species of duiker, giant forest hog, and Columbus and
Sykes monkeys. There is also prolific bird-life around the mountain, ranging from huge eagles to multicolored sun-birds.
