Full description
This 5-day adventure includes hotel pickup and drop off in Nairobi. Travel worry-free with the support of a professional guide, porters, and a skilled cook, as well as tent rentals, included in the price.  The journey starts with a 4-hour drive to Chogoria Park Gate and accommodation at the Kenya Wildlife Services campsite. Travel off the beaten path on day 2 with lunch by the Nithi River and plenty of time to explore the surrounding hillsides. On Day 4, hike up to Mintos Hut while enjoying magnificent views of Lake Ellis, the Gorges Valley, and Vivienne Waterfalls.   Day 4 starts with a pre-dawn breakfast before passing the Simba and Harris Tarns to arrive at Point Lenana at sunrise. The views from the summit are well worth the steep and gravelly climb. After taking in the views, descend to the Meru Mount Kenya Lodge.   On the 5th and final day, descend through dense rain and bamboo forests to Chogoria Town where the van will be waiting for the return transfer to Nairobi after lunch.
