Mount Kenya is the second-highest in Africa, after Kilimanjaro.
It’s about 150 kilometres (93 mi) north-northeast of the capital Nairobi.
I’m looking at using Mt Kenya as an acclimatization hike immediately prior to Kilimanjaro.
Mt Kenya takes 5 days and reaches a high point of 4985 metres over a trek of about 50 kilometres.
So far I’ve been talking to Adventure Alternatives and have been very happy with their response. And they’ve been quite flexible to help me fit in this climb just before Kili.
My rendezvous with the Kili group in Arusha is September 7th.
DETAILS – Mount Kenya Traverse
30th August – 3rd September
Price starts at £1,095pp ($1355) plus extras. Much less expensive than Kili.

Good luck on your epic journey!
I did exactly what you are suggesting when I climbed Kili 31 years ago.It was perfect.A very interesting hike over Mt Kenya with unique flora and fauna. Snowed heavily one night Most importantly I was extremely well acclimatised for Kili
Thanks Chris. I hope it works as well for me as it did for you.
