The rich history of Ethiopia is spread out over a large area in the north of the country, making it best accessible by flying to each site. The ancient churches and culture of Ethiopia are treasure trove of cultural sights with a backdrop of spectacular mountain scenery. This holiday takes in the full spectrum of cultural highlights at Lake Tana, Gondar, Lailbela, Axum & the Tigray Region and caters for trekkers and non trekkers alike.
Mount Kenya is the second highest peak in Africa, in the shadow of it’s taller neighbour Kilimanjaro, but offers a wealth of excellent and diverse climbing possibilities on rock, snow and ice.
Apart from the superb climbing potential on Mount Kenya, its tarns and alpine meadows; exotic, equatorial, high-altitude vegetation; sunbirds, hyrax and soaring eagles make the walk around the peaks one of the most beautiful expeditions in the East African mountains.
You will stay in huts, and have porters similar to on Kilimanarjo, but the route is much more challenging although its not quite as high as Kilimanjaro.
This is a technical climb at the top, so you will need to learn how to use your mountaineering skills; ice axe and crampons.
