We organise tailor-made walking safaris on Mount Kenya for groups or individuals who are looking for a mountain wilderness adventure.
Our trips are personalised itineraries without set departure dates.
We have an experienced mountain team who will do their utmost to ensure your trip is as safe and enjoyable as possible.
Mount Kenya is on the Equator, 4 hours drive north of Nairobi. On Africa’s second highest mountain, you can experience a high altitude walking trip amongst rugged peaks and glaciers, without the crowds.
If you are fit and active and want to challenge yourself to a high peak, you can trek to the third highest point, Point Lenana, which at 4,985 metres is higher than Mont Blanc. Or you can stroll in the eastern foothills, camping by Lake Ellis, visiting the spectacular Nithi waterfalls and climbing the mini summit of Mugi Hill.
You can combine your mountain trip with a safari either in one of the neighbouring conservancies such as Ol Pejeta, or in a national reserve such as Samburu, a few hours drive from Mount Kenya.
Please come and visit this beautiful region of northern Kenya, ‘Kenya’s high country’.
We look forward to welcoming you back this year as soon as global restrictions start to lift. Kenya has adopted health and hygiene protocols of the World Travel and Tourism Council and is a ‘Safe Travels’ destination.
Thank you for your support.

We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent holiday in Kenya and would like to thank you for arranging it….probably the best holiday we’ve had.
The expedition up Mount Kenya was everything we had hoped for. The Chogoria route provided stunning scenery and flora (as well as an elephant and buffalo on the way). The whole team of porters were friendly and supportive and did everything to ensure we were looked after, comfortable and made it to the summit. We cannot speak highly enough of the core team of John, James, Jackson and Sam who were exceptional – July 2019.
Mount Kenya 60+ was a very special project to me. Lucy Booth enthusiastically agreed to join me and designed the best itinerary I could imagine. The most pristine areas, including Point Lenana, for ourselves with plenty of time to enjoy them. Kenya Treks’ guides, porters, cook and waiter are a team of professionals, mountain lovers and fun people. All equipment is top quality and well maintained. This together transformed the climb into un voyage inoubliable… à refaire ! Asanta sana !! – January 2019.
Just a quick note to thank you so very much for organising our amazing trip. Memories abound but what will most stick are the smiley faces and laughter of the team, welcoming bowls of hot water to wash our hands, hot water bottles, tea in the morning, copious amounts of food and amazing scenery. Thanks again to you and the team – October 2018.
A thrilling and unforgettable holiday. Lucy’s experience and in-depth local knowledge is second to none and everything exceeded our expectations. All the fine detail was covered, so we could start enjoying the holiday from the moment we left home – August 2018.
First meeting with Lucy Booth and then with the Kenyan team, headed by John. I knew my husband and I were in safe, professional hands. Everyone was well trained, knowledgeable, calm, supportive and encouraging.They also went out of their way to tailor our itinerary and help me revisit places I had been before and were always good company. I could not recommend Kenya Treks more highly. – November 2017
Hello! I wanted to send a quick note with the photos from our group’s recent trek to Point Lenana (Chogoria-Sirimon) with John, James and team from Kenya Treks. They did a fantastic, professional job in all aspects and I won’t hesitate to recommend them to others. Thanks for all your great work! – August 2017
John and the team were great. Most of the time we felt that we had the mountain to ourselves and the camp sites were totally uncrowded. Our Mount Kenya trek was better and more beautiful than Kilimanjaro….less crowded and more pristine. – July 2017
