We organise Climbing and trekking to among other places, Mount Kenya, Mount Kilimanjaro, Aberdare Mountain Ranges, Mount Meru, Mount Elgon, Mathew’s Ranges, Mount Longonot among others..

Mount Kenya: Mount Kenya (5199m) is a breathtaking spectacle and definitely a much more beautiful mountain than Mount Kilimanjaro 5,894m. It is perhaps due to this majestic beauty that the Kikuyu people who reside on its lower slopes believed that this was their Gods' abode. The true summits of Mount Kenya is made up of twin peaks of Batian (5,199m) and Nelion (5,188m) not easy to conquer and each year less than 100 climbers make it to the top because of the technical climbing skill required. Point Lenana (4,985m), the third highest peak and so-called the trekkers summit, can be reached by any reasonably fit and suitably prepared person. Trekking to Point Lenana is a thrilling adventure undertaken by many as part of their African Holiday or as an acclimatisation activity for those destined to trek up Mount Kilimanjaro. Inspired by the story of the 3 Italian prisoner and saddened by the negative environmental impact being experienced on the traditional routes use to trek up mount Kenya, Mountain Rock has taken an initiative and uncovererd the indefinite routing used by the 3 prisoners to scale Mount Kenya. We have recently opened up an exciting new route through the western slops of the mountain known as the BURGURET ROUTE. This new trail is an untrodden, natural and sensational ascent trail that is very ideal to trekkers seeking exclusivity and serenity. (Itineraries)

Mount Kilimanjaro National Park Kilimanjaro is the highest peak on the African continent and also the tallest free-standing mountain in the world. It rises in breathtaking isolation from the surrounding coastal scrubland (approx. 900metres) to an imperious 5,895metres (19,336 feet). Kilimanjaro is one of the world's most accessible high summits, a beacon for visitors from around the world. Most climbers reach the crater rim with little more than a walking stick, proper clothing and determination. In association with our sister company in Tanzania, Mountain Rock organizes classic treks to Kilimanjaro. Our strength on Kilimanjaro is the ability to organise dual summit treks to both Mount Kenya and Kilimanjaro as one tour using common trek leaders and maintaining similar standards throughout. We operate on all routes on Mount Kilimanjaro. (Itineraries)

Aberdares Mountain Ranges. Although little known to many trekking enthuthiasts, Aberdares mountain Ranges offer very classy treks on it’s own or as an aclimatisation platform for longer treks to Mount Kenya or Kilimanjaro. Visitors to Aberdares can also indulge in trout fishing, bird viewing (with over 250 species of birds recorded in the park) enjoy wonderful game drive and visit the incredibly beautiful and dramatic waterfalls. Hiking to the summit is uncommon but a very unique experience. Mountain Rock offers guided treks and safaris to the Aberdare’s ranging from a single day to 5 days trekking safaris. (Itinerary)
