Calling all adventurers! Here’s a challenge and a half to get stuck into: trek, cycle and water raft your way around Kenya on this tri-adventure of a lifetime. We know where we’ll be next November, do you?
Mountains, roads and rivers
Travel more than 200 kilometres under your own steam, taking in some of Kenya’s most spectacular scenery along the way.
Long overshadowed by Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya is Africa’s second largest mountain and trekkers are starting to turn their attention to this less travelled glacial peak. Our 57 kilometres route travels through dense bamboo and rainforests rich in wildlife over four days. When you reach the summit, you’ll understand why local tribe the Kikuyu believe that this mountain was an earthly throne for Ngai, their god.
There’s no better way to absorb the sights, sounds and smells of Kenya’s rural landscape than on two wheels. You’ll cover 130 kilometres over two days, mainly on dirt roads.
This part of your challenge is sure to give you an adrenaline high, especially when you’re riding River Tana’s Sphincter Flexor rapid. Experienced guides will teach you the paddle skills needed to negotiate a 16 kilometre stretch of Kenya’s longest river.
