Mount Kenya Climbing Safari Descending Via Naro Moru Gate
One of the best ways to experience Kenya is by going for a climbing safari. Although, Kenya is widely known as a wildlife destination with several national parks and beautiful marine parks- it is possible to do a climbing safari in Kenya. Mount Kenya is the highest Mountain in Kenya and the second highest in Africa after Mount Kilimanjaro which offers the best alternative for mount climbers. Climbing Mount Kenya is relatively challenging however with an experienced company like us, it is almost impossible not to reach the summit. We have experienced success with our clients and we are waiting for you to be added unto this long list of our Mount Kenya climbing clients.
Day1: Nairobi to Old Moses Camp
Early in the morning after breakfast, you shall be picked by our friendly guide to Nanyuki town. Lunch shall be served at one of the wonderful eating points in the town. Later you shall proceed to the Sirimon gate; this is the point where you shall meet the porters, cooks, the mountain guides who shall aide you to reach the summit.

Day 3: Like North camp – Shipton camp Altitude: 4200m Distance: 4km
Shipton camp is normally the last destination before attempting the summit-Point Lenana. This is another relaxing day and you won’t have to walk long distances. There are higher chances of reaching the summit because of the acclimatization which is involved during this journey. Normally, the body needs to rest and regain the needed energy to take on the climbing challenge. This is when taking short hikes like this is necessary. Upon arrival at Shipton camp, you shall rest and plan for the summit hike the following day.
