Mount Kenya

Mount Kenya is the second-highest mountain in Africa after Kilimanjaro, which belongs to UNESCO?s World Heritage List. It is an extinct volcano that erupted between 2.8 to 3.2 million years ago. Mount Kenya is not a mountain of one peak but many: it consists of a cluster of spikes, spirals, and summits. The most popular routes up the mountain are the Naro Moru, Chogoria, and Sirimon Routes. The highest two peaks can only be reached with specialist mountaineering equipment. Hiking here may sound exciting, but it can also be dangerous: moreover, it is forbidden to hike on Mount Kenya alone. 


Nairobi is considered the safari capital of Kenya since it has an extremely rich wildlife and the highest concentration of black rhinos in all of Africa. Moreover, it is one of Africa?s fastest-growing cities, which can boast its bustling nightlife and skyscrapers regularly popping up on its skyline. Nairobi is a unique city as there is a sharp contrast between the wildlife and the busy city. One of the main attractions of Nairobi is the luxurious hotel Giraffe Manor, where giraffes make regular appearances at breakfast and dinner, poking their long necks into the windows.
