East African Mountains
Towering more than 5,000 meters above the surrounding serengeti, Mount Kenya casts an imposing shadow over its surroundings.
Trekking along the Naro Moru route, up to one of the many lofty summits on the peak, is one of the most popular ways to experience the incredible beauty of this iconic mountain.
The destination of our trip will be Point Lenana (4,985 meters), but we will start by meeting up in Nairobi and driving to the park, crossing the equator en route.
Once in the park, we will hike up to a meteorological station, from which we get incredible views of the mountain in the early hours of the morning, when the air is most clear.
From here, we will hike on top Mackinders valley, getting the chance to see some of Africa’s most iconic wildlife, while enjoying phenomenal views of the surrounding scenery.
After getting a pre-dawn start on the following day, we will climb up to Point Lenana in time to see the sunrise, a truly unforgettable experience.
After enjoying the views out over the rest of Kenya and maybe even having the chance to see Kilimanjaro, we will descend back down the mountain to the meteorological station. The next day, we hike to the park entrance and return to Nairobi.
So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettable 5-day trek up to Point Lenana, on the slopes of Mount Kenya!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
