MT. KENYA, THRONE OF THE GOD NGAI
Mt. Kenya is the second highest mountain in Africa after Kilimanjaro. Mt.Kenya is the beautiful home of Ngai, God of the Kikuyu people of Kenya. Several rivers, gorges and lakes are found in Mt. Kenya National Park. See the spectacular sunrise when summiting Point Lenana, 4985m above sea level, which is an achievable challenge for any fit person. For those who are wanting technical climbing on the summits of Batian or Nelion, we can provide an English speaking technical guide at extra cost.
