1 Day Mt. Kenya Hiking Trip Excursion from Nairobi


  • Nairobi
  • Mt. Kenya

This 1 Day Trek is designed for guests who have limited time and who are not interested in reaching any of the summits. This tour is tailored to those who are interested in enjoying the fascinating vegetation zones of an equatorial mountain and the wild life.

There are three main routes to approaching the great Mount Kenya; the Naro Moru Route; the Sirimon Route and the Chogoria Route. These trips are often for visitors who would be spending a night in camps or lodges, hotels or hostels in the whole of Mount Kenya region. The trip offers a drive to the park entrance and several walks to Meet Station at 3000 meters.

The hiking starts from the Park entrance to Old Moses Camp through the Gallery forest up at an altitude of 3000 meters. Being a favorite spot for ornithologists it offers an opportunity to enjoy the view of the Grevy Zebras in the forest. These walks offer good opportunities for bird watchers and for enjoying the different kinds of plantation life.

On the other hand, there is a Moorland one day-trip that also offers a drive up to Old Moses Camp from which you can hike to the Moorland. At this point, magnificent alpine plants view can be enjoyed.

You also drive to Old Moses Camp where the hike starts through the barrow towards Liki North Valley. In here, the Moorland offers a gentle climb through fascinating vegetation with a chance of enjoying the peaks view.
