Mount Kenya Day Trip

Mount Kenya Day Trip

The Mt. Kenya Day Trip is designed for the visitor who has limited time and who is not interested in reaching any of the summits. This safari is tailored to those who are interested in seeing the fascinating vegetation zones of an equatorial mountain and the associated rich animal and birdlife.

This safari departs from Naromoru town at 0800hrs after a briefing and equipment sorting by the guides. Thereafter embark on a drive for 16 kms to the park gate where you check-in the Mount Kenya national park. After a few minutes of photo taking and viewing of some wildlife such as bushbucks, waterbucks, baboons, and birdlife, board our 4×4 vehicles which drive up to the road head of the Naro Moru Track (altitude 3,000m Met. Station Camp).

The guides will do a short talk and explain more about the vegetation around the camp. You will be provided with packed lunch after which guides will set a leisurely pace for a relaxing trek up the mountain through different vegetations from bamboo forest, hagenia trees to heathers trees and beginning of moorland covered by tussock grass and flowered cabbage roberias, also with great views of lowland and Aberdare ranges. Along the way, you will enjoy the enriched forest of birdlife and flowers on the high altitudes.

After 3- 4 hrs of ascending you will be on top of Teleki Valley where we have the picnic rocks in time for lunch (3,700m). Enjoy your packed lunch with a good view.

After lunch, continue your stroll to the crest of the ridge at 4,000m. From this vantage point, you have a splendid view of the main peaks as well as the Teleki Valley.

Thereafter descend down to Met. Station (2-3hrs) where you’ll find our 4×4 vehicles waiting to transfer you back to the lodge for a hot shower and a well-earned rest.
