Mount Kenya

Mount Kenya is an extinct volcano and the second highest peak in Africa after Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. With its rugged glacier-clad summits and forested middle slopes, Mount Kenya is one of the most impressive landscapes in East Africa. It offers easy or challenging ascents with superb scenic beauty. Part of the mountain’s fascination is the variation in flora and fauna as the altitude changes. These forest belts are host to many different animals and plants with at least 11 unique species.
