For those in the know, Mount Kenya is the hidden gem of treks in East Africa. While Kilimanjaro may be the highest, Mount Kenya is a slightly easier climb and definitely the continent’s most interesting mountain, with more endemic species of birds and plants than any other mountain in Africa. Comprised of several peaks named after Masai labons (chiefs) such as Batian and Nelion, the highest are reserved for experienced technical climbers, though Lenana peak at about 16,000 feet (often above the snow line) is very accessible and can be comfortably climbed in 4-5 nights.
Alex Hunter was born in Kenya in the mid 1960’s, into a family of Irish and Scottish descent which has always been closely involved with Africa’s wildlife and people since the turn of last century. His namesake and grandfather was the record-holding commercial game hunter and well-known author J.A. Hunter.
