Mountains Of East Africa

Most mountains in East Africa are doable by anybody with a reasonable fitness and good health. Other’s like Batian route on Mt Kenya require some experience in rock climbing, ropes, helmets and harnesses. The vast majority of guests want to climb Mt Kilimanjaro, Mt Kenya or Mt Meru. Those who want to climb Oldonyo Lengai, the holy mountain of the Maasai, need to be quite strong and completely free of vertigo. The last eruption of this active volcano has carved its flanks even steeper than before.

High altitude

The more days you spend on your way into high altitude, the better is your chance to acclimatize properly.
