Majestic peaks.  Deep valleys sculpted by ancient glaciers.  Amazing wildlife including elephant, giraffe and eland on the lower slopes with diverse vegetation befitting of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.  Wonderful views across Africa from the summit, followed by a once-in-a-life-time chance to visit and stay in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, recently featured in the David Attenborough ‘Seven Worlds, One Planet’, when he filmed the season finale.

 

Welcome to the setting for the seventh adventure in the Maggie’s Adventure Series…a spectacular summit of Mount Kenya!

Our challenge is to reach Point Lenana, which, at 4985m is the second highest trekking peak in Africa.  Some would say it is a more beautiful mountain than Kilimanjaro and it is away from the busy and well-trodden tourist paths.  The Timau route on Mount Kenya wanders through pristine forest and alpine heathland giving an opportunity to experience the unique flora and fauna away from the busy tourist routes.
