Mountain Safaris

Our mountain safaris cover Mt. Kenya and Mt. Kilimanjaro. Mt. Kenya which forms part of the Central Highlands is Africa's second highest mountain and highest mountain in Kenya at 5199 metres. Part of the mountain’s attraction is the variation of flora and fauna found at different altitudes. Its gleaming and snow covered peaks can be seen for miles around and its lower slopes are intensively cultivated by the Kikuyu, Embu and Meru tribes. Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, at 5895m. Mt. Kilimanjaro is located at the north/eastern tip of Tanzania. For the adventurous, a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro is a must taking you through the mists of equatorial jungle to reach the snows and breath-taking views from the summit.
