Introduction

Perfect for adventurers and climbers, this itinerary takes you to Kilimanjaro’s little brother, Mount Kenya. As Africa’s second-highest summit, the climb will both challenge and exhilarate trekkers, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Begin your trip in bustling Nairobi before making your way to Meru. Spend four nights on the mountain, sleeping in tented camps as you go. Views from the summit are breathtaking and make the hard climb worthwhile. On a clear day, you may even spot Kilimanjaro in the distance. Finish your trip with a blissful stay in a beachside resort and return home triumphant, well-rested and full of stories to tell.

What people are saying

Dara at OROKO booked the most fantastic trip for my daughter and I to Athens. It was our first time in Greece. Between Acropolis, museum, and gallery visits, to quiet times at a beachside boutique hotel, it was the most perfect Easter break for us both. Thanks OROKO.
