Mount Kenya walking holiday, Kenya
Description of Mount Kenya walking holiday, Kenya
This trip can be tailor made between December - March and July - mid October and can be adapted to suit your interests, budget and requirements as necessary
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
Planet and peopleCommunity
Your trip will be directly supporting our local team of guides, cook and porters, and by extension their families. Our Cook buys all your fresh food from local markets in Nanyuki and from locally owned, small shops. If you visit a local school and/or children's home, small gifts of stationery and toys are always gratefully received. The lodges in Laikipia employ local people and some lodges are managed and/or hosted by local Maasai communities. All lodges we recommend support community projects. We can arrange temporary membership of Amref flying doctors to give you added reassurance and to support the charitable work of the flying doctor service. Your membership is in addition to, but not instead of, your travel insurance.
We suggest you extend your stay by spending some time at one of the lodges near Mount Kenya. The lodges we recommend directly support local communities or community based projects. Additionally, your conservation fees will contribute to saving some of Africa’s most endangered animal species, many of which you may see during your stay.
We hope you will gain a real insight into the lives and culture of the people you meet and share with them the spectacular and precious environment of northern Kenya upon which they rely, and which you will be helping to preserve for the future.
Your Mount Kenya park fees support the work of the Kenya Wildlife Service in preserving the pristine wilderness of the mountain and the surrounding national park. Your lodge conservation fees support local communities, and help to conserve some of Africa’s most endangered species. On Mount Kenya, your team will collect any rubbish dropped by others, and if you are camping on the mountain, we uphold the principles of ‘leave no trace’.
