DAY 7: MOUNT KENYA

Experience a Mount Kenya safari and discover Africa 's second highest mountain. With a summit covered in snow and ice it's difficult to imagine that it's situated astride the equator!

 

Mount Kenya also has a fair splattering of wildlife, particularly on the lower slopes of the mountain. You can expect to see elephant, rhino, buffalo leopard, bushbuck, several species of duiker, giant forest hog, and colobus and Sykes monkeys. There is also prolific birdlife around the mountain, ranging from huge eagles to multicoloued sunbirds.

 

For the adventurous and outdoor types there are a variety of hiking and mountain climbing trails to choose from. For those safari enthusiasts who enjoy 'taking it easy' - Mount Kenya Safari Club is the place to stay.

 

Mount Kenya Safari Club has been a mecca for the rich and famous ever since it was founded in 1959. Set in beautifully manicured grounds, this is definitely the most sophisticated and romantic way to experience the area.
