Join a certified mountain guide for this unforgettable 15-day trip to the iconic landscapes of Kenya and Tanzania. Climb the highest peaks in Africa – Mount Kenya and Mount Kilimanjaro – while enjoying some simply incredible scenery and seeing some of the continent's iconic wildlife.
Enjoy the stunning scenery of Mount Kenya and Mount Kilimanjaro.
Climb both of the highest peaks in Africa.
Get the chance to see some of Africa's most iconic wildlife along the way.
Come to East Africa for the adventure of a lifetime! Over the course of 15 days, we will climb the highest peaks in Africa: Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895 m) and Mount Kenya (5,199 m).
The adventure begins when we land in Nairobi and transfer to the foot of Mount Kenya, the second highest peak in Africa. Over the course of the next 4 days, we will climb through various climate zones, enjoying stunning views of our surroundings and getting the chance to see some of Africa’s most iconic animals.
The highlight of the climb is summit day, in which we will head to one of the peak’s minor summits and watch the sunrise over the serengeti, a real treat.
After we’ve descended Mount Kenya, the fun continues. We will head to a wildlife sanctuary and head out on two wildlife watching expeditions: one at night and one during the day, in order to see as many of Africa’s most unique animals as we can.
From here, we return to Nairobi for a night before transferring to Kilimanjaro National Park. The second half of the trip will be spent summiting the highest mountain in Africa. We will again enjoy a stunning sunrise from its summit before returning to Arusha and heading to the airport.
There is no shortage of incredible scenery and nothing like the feeling of climbing the two highest peaks in Africa!
So what are you waiting for? Book now for this once-in-a-lifetime experience climbing to the top of Mount Kenya and Mount Kilimanjaro, while enjoying a safari in between!
If you like the look of this trip, but do not have 15 days to spare, then we think you may also enjoy our 8-day ascent of just Mount Kilimanjaro via the Lemosho route!
We will meet at the international airport in Nairobi and drive to Nanyuki, near the base of Mount Kenya, where we will spend the day acclimatizing and stay for the night.
We will get up first thing in the morning and check into the national park. From here, we will drive to the trailhead then hike for 2 to 3 hours up to Old Moses camp, where we will spend the night.
We will spend 6 to 7 hours hiking up through the scenic Mackinder Valley en route to Shipton camp, where we will spend the night.
Getting a pre-dawn start, we will hike for three hours up to Point Lenana (4,985 m), one of the minor summits of Mount Kenya. After watching the sunrise and taking the stunning views from the top, we will hike back down to the Chogoria Bandas campsite.
From Chogoria Bandas we will hike to the entrance fo the park and transfer to the Sweetwaters game reserve where we will go on an evening wildlife-watching drive, before returning to the hotel.
We will start the day by heading out on another wildlife-watching drive before driving past Lake Nakuru and on into the national park, where we will spend the night at a hotel.
We will drive from the national park back to Nairobi with the option of visiting the hippo-filled Lake Naivasha (for an extra $40 per person). We will spend the night at a hotel in Nairobi.
We will drive from Nairobi on to Arusha, crossing the border en route. From Arusha, we will continue on to Moshi, where we will spend the night in a hotel.
We will drive from Moshi to Kilimanjaro National Park. After signing in at the park gate, we will start by hiking up to the Mandara hut.
We will hike from Mandara hut through the forest surrounding Kilimanjaro and around the rim of the Maundi Crater, before entering the moorlands of an elevated plateau and on to Horombo hut. If we have the time, we can make a detour to climb to the rim of the crater.
We will spend the day hiking around the Horombo hut, possibly up to Mawenzi hut or the Zebra rocks, in order to acclimatize, before turning in nice and early.
We will hike up out of the moorlands and enter the mountain’s alpine desert habitat. We will continue hiking on to Kibo hut, where we will spend the afternoon relaxing and get to bed nice and early for summit day.
Getting a pre-dawn start, we will head out onto the trail and make a steep and rocky ascent up to Hans Meyer Cave (5,150 m). From here, the most challenging part awaits. We will ascend another 500 meters through a field of steep and loose scree and snow, which becomes gradually less steep until we reach the summit. After watching the sunrise and enjoying some time at the top (5,895 m), we will descend back down to Horombo hut.
We will spend the day hiking down the mountain and out of the park. We will then transfer to Arusha, where we will have a celebration dinner and stay in a hotel.
We will drop you off at Kilimanjaro International Airport and say goodbye.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
