Mount Kenya Trekking
Safaris Departing Nairobi
Safaris From Mombasa, Diani, Kilifi ,Watamu OR Malindi.
It is probably the only route where seeing wildlife in the first days is possible. The route takes six days minimum to complete, although seven days is recommended. The descent is down Mweka, on the south-east side of the mountain.
Because the starting point is far from Moshi, it is more expensive to climb this route due to the added transportation cost of getting climbers to the gate. Scenically, Rongai is beautiful because it travels through an unspoiled rain forest and remote wilderness area.
