Mt Kenya National Park Day Trip | Tour of Mount Kenya
Mt Kenya Day Trip: Mount Kenya National Park day tour is a full day hike on the Mount Kenya slopes from Nairobi. The Mt Kenya 1 day hiking trip is offered as a shared or joining safari or as a private or solo tour. You can enjoy the Mt Kenya 1 day climb on any day of the month and see the Mt Kenya peaks. Mt Kenya attracts a lot of hikers as it’s the second highest mountain in Africa.
Mt Kenya National Park 1 Day Hike from Nairobi
The mt Kenya national park is located some 138km north of Nairobi in central Kenya. The mountain stands at 5199m above sea level and the three peaks of Lenana, Batian, and Nelion are the best views one can see. Most day trippers however just want to get close enough to the peaks to take good pictures and not to summit the mountain since this is impractical. You may however see some elephants, buffalos and giant forest hogs on your climb up to the moorland.
The tour van will drive you through the park gates up to an altitude of 3300m at old Moses camp in the rain forest region. Your goal is to walk the rest of the way and pass the rain forest into the alpine or moorland region which is mainly grassland, lobelia and groundsels and with an uninterrupted view of the three peaks as there are no trees in the moorland. This is the highlight of a Mt Kenya 1 Day Hike Trip.
