7 DAYS MOUNT KENYA CLIMBING NARO MORU CHOGORIA

7 DAYS MOUNT KENYA CLIMBING NARO MORU CHOGORIA

This is the route we proudly boast about, having relaunched it ourselves after more than 30 years of dis-use. The route was pioneered during colonial days and then abandoned for many years until it was re-opened by us in the early 90s.

Going up this route is quite challenging: rough underfoot going through bushy track more used by wild animals than humans, muddy when wet, no huts and with dense stands of giant bamboo and montane forest. So why are we so passionate about it? Well, it’s for those who want a different experience away from the crowd.

It provides a unique and completely natural mountain trekking experience. Up to Point Lenana then descent on the Chogoria route provides the most spectacular views and completes a traverse of the mountain. Accommodation on the trek is one night in a comfortable lodge, 5 nights camping and one night in Bandas at the end of the trip.

When camping on our trips you will not have to participate in camp chores. All your equipment will be carried by local porters on the mountain, you only carry a day-pack with personal gear.

For catering we buy fresh produce locally and to ensure good standards of hygiene all food is prepared by our own staff and can cater for special dietary requirements and there are no extra food-kitty payments.
