Safari Overview & Itinerary

Our 4 Days Trekking Climbing Mount Kenya - Naro Moru Route is the most popular climbing trip in Kenya to Mount Kenya National Park. The most popular route although not the most scenic. It is also the fastest route to point Lenana. Take this classic route up Mount Kenya through the notoriously treacherous vertical bog and into the wide Teleki Valley beneath the Tyndall, The Lewis Glacier. 

Starting in Naro Moru town, the first part of the route takes you along a gravel road through farmlands for some 13km to the start of the forest. Another 5km brings you to the park entry gate (2400m), from where it’s 8km to the road head, and the Met Station Hut(3000m), where you stay for the night and acclimatize.

The route is not particularly scenic but has some of the best tourist accommodations. Most climbers begin at the park gate, although it is possible to drive a vehicle as far as the Met station (3050 meters). Among the challenges in this route include the vertical bog and the extremely steep trail on loose gravel while going up.

Though the summit can be reached in 4 days as per the below itinerary, we strongly recommend an overnight acclimatization at the base, Naromoru River Lodge. This can be arranged for at an extra fee.

Safari Itinerary

Transfer to Naromoru Park Gate for registration and where the hike starts, 2600m From the gate, keep to the park track, which follows the crest of a board ridge between the Northern and Southern Naromoru valleys.

 

The going is easy and it’s a pleasant walking through the forest. About two thirds of the way up after the bridge there are good views to the left north down into the Northern Naromoru valley.

 

The trek ends at Met station 3,000m where dinner and overnight rest will be, B, L, D

Head uphill on the track to pass the radio must on your right after about half an hour. The trek runs into a path and after another 30 minutes, you will reach the end of the forest belt and enter the moorland.

 

This is the vertical bog conditions range from damp to glutinous depending on when it last rained.

 

Continue through until the going improves and you reach a fork overlooking Teleki Valley to reach Mackinders Camp, 4,200m. Dinner and overnight at Mackinders Camp, B, L, D

 

Dinner and overnight at our camp / base
