Mt Kenya Narumoru Route 5 Days Safari

Day 1 - Arrival - Journey from Nairobi to Nanyuki

On arrival you will be picked from the Airport and transferred to Nanyuki Town for acclimation before beginning your Mount Kenya Climbing Safari. Dinner and overnight at your Hotel.

Day 2 - Reach Met Station (1000m ascent)

From the gate we keep to the park track, which follows the crest of a broad ridge between the Northern and Southern Naro Moro valleys. The going is easy, and it's pleasant walking through the forest. About two thirds of the way up, after the bridge, there are good views to your left (north), down into the Northern Naro Moru Valley. The track ends at Met Station (3050m).Meals and Overnight will be served at Met Station.

Day 3 - Reach Mackinder's Camp (1150m ascent)

From Met Station, we head uphill on the track and pass the radio mast on your right after about half an hour. The track turns into a path and after another 30 minutes you'll reach the end of the forest belt and enter moorland. This area is called the Vertical Bog; conditions range from them damp to the glutinous depending on when it last rained. Wade through (or hop across tussocks) until the going gets easier and you reach a fork, overlooking then Teleki valley, about 31/2 hours from Met Station. After about 45 minutes you'll eventually be at Mackinder's Camp area (4200m).Meals and Overnight will be served at Mackinder's Camp.

Day 4 - Reach Point Lenana and Back to Met Station

The day hiking starts around 3a.m to get to the summit of Point Lenana by sunrise, then a walk all the way back down to Met Station on same day. This is journey is long and hard.It is therefore recommended that you try as much as you can to reach the Hut Station (4790m) and spend the day 3 night there before going up to Lenana next morning. Alternatively, you can just reach Austrian hut at Mackinder's just after Lenana. Even better, spend two nights at Mackinder's Camp before going up to Lenana, to give your self more time to acclimatize and a much better chance of enjoying the walk to the top. From Austrian hut you get excellent views: north- east up to the summit of Point Lenana, with the area on the left (west) of the main south- west ridge usually a snow field covering the Lewis Glacier; west, across the Lewis Glacier itself, to the steep south east face of Newlion; and south east, down into the Hobley Valley, with Gallery Tarn over to the left (north) side of the valley.Meals and Overnight at Met Station.

Day 5 - From Met Station to Park Gate (2600m)

On this last day we retrace our footstep and down on the path to park gate. Meals and Overnight will be served at our town Hotel or our next destination.
