8 days Mt Kenya Trek & Maasai Mara National Reserve Safari

Mt Kenya trek &  Maasai Mara safari

Mount Kenya is the second highest mountain in Africa, after Kilimanjaro. At 5199m it's quite a climb but anyone fit can make it and some say it's a more technical climb than Kilimanjaro. 

There are three main routes and our expert guides take you along the Sirimon route - the quietest of the three with the most gradual ascent profile and best for acclimatization options. You'll pass beautiful Alpine scenery on the way up and an abundance of wildlife too. 

And once you've conquered the summit then it's off to the Maasai Mara for your safari. 

The Mara is hands down the most popular tourist destination in Kenya and it's not difficult to see why! No where else in Africa is wildlife more abundant than in the Masaai Mara... so if it's wildlife you want then a safari here will give you one of the best chances of spotting the Big Five.
