We start off our private safaris in Kenya with the amazing Mount Kenya climb via the Sirimon Chogoria Route.

4 DAYS SIRIMON – CHOGORIA ROUTE

4 DAYS SIRIMON CHOGORIA ROUTE

Overview

This creative climb joins two of the most scenic routes up Mount Kenya, Sirimon and Chogoria, producing a remarkably diverse and spectacular trek.

Sirimon coming off the west of Mount Kenya passes through the dry side of the mountain with its giant trees and rocky terrain.

The descent onto the Chogoria path is exactly different. It has lush bamboo and highland forests.

The final nighttime ascent of Point  Lenana can be as difficult as any ascent in East Africa, but the rest of the trek is generally considered easier than either Kilimanjaro or the Rwenzoris.

Safari Itinerary

Day 1:

Nairobi – Sirimon gate – Old Moses camp. ( 3,300m) 3-4 hrs, 9km walk, 680m ascent.

After pick up in Nairobi, drive to Nanyuki town crossing the equator en route to the Sirimon Park gate for lunch (2660m).

From the gate, we trek up through the magnificent montane forest, bamboo and giant heather zone before reaching the high altitude moorland and our first hut (Old Moses camp 3,300m) for dinner and overnight.

This is a gentle trek that takes 3 – 4 hrs gaining an elevation of 680m.

Day 2:

Old Moses – Shipton camp (4200m). 7 hrs, 14km, 900m ascent.

After breakfast, follow the track uphill, forking right at the junction.

After a water break, you continue on the track crossing Ontulili River before turning right contouring through the Moorland and crossing Liki North River and continue uphill to Mackinders Valley from where there are panoramic views up the valley towards the Shipton Camp.

This camp is a surreal setting below the towering peaks and glaciers. The resident population is of Rock hyrax and sunbirds.

Day 3:

Shipton – Pt Lenana (4985m)- Mt Kenya Bandas (2800m) 11-12 hrs, 29km, 785 ascent, 2,085m descent.

Kick off at 3 am to reach point Lenana in time for the African sunrise.

The climb starts on frozen scree and continues on a rocky track with some very minor scrambling.

With a good Moon, you barely need a torch. Without a Moon, then the pollution-free sky bangs on the ground giving you as good a view of the stars as almost anywhere on Earth.

The climb takes  -4 hrs and to add to the exhilaration, Mt. Kilimanjaro is also visible from the horizon.

Descend to Minto’s hut for full breakfast.

After a short rest – descend further to Mt Kenya bandas along the gorges valley where you can enjoy good views of The Temple, Lake Michaelson, Mushroom rocks, and Giant billiards table. 

Dinner and overnight at the Bandas. You can enjoy log fires, hot showers and bed at the Bandas!

Day 4:

Meru Bandas – Chogoria town – Nairobi. 3 hrs, 10km walk.

After breakfast, descend on a broad track through bamboo and virgin rain forest to meet vehicle for transfer to Chogoria town and further to Nairobi or just get picked up from chogoria bandas
