mount kenya
Mount Kenya is Africa's second highest mountain standing at 5,199m, poised magnificently on the equator. Her spectacular snow- capped peaks create a stunning backdrop all year- round, and are crowned to be the only snow- blessed point on the equator. Africa's most stunning mountain treasures sweeping valleys infused with jeweled streams and lucent- colored birds who will befriend you on sight.

mount logonot
Mount Longonot is a stratovolcano located southeast of Lake Naivasha in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, Africa. It is thought to have last erupted in the 1860s. Its name is derived from the Maasai word oloonong'ot, meaning "mountains of many spurs" or "steep ridges". A trail runs from the park entrance up to the crater rim, and continues in a loop encircling the crater.

The mountain's highest point, named "Wagagai", is located entirely within the country of Uganda. It is the oldest and largest solitary volcano in East Africa, covering an area of around 3500 kmē.

I was born on the slopes of Mt.Kenya in the mid 70s in a village 2 kilometers from Nanyuki town, which is on the leeward side of the mountain i.e. 7 kilometers away. I grew with great interest and admiration of what the mountain offers beyond waking up and watching the clear blue sky. At a young age of 10 years, I could only accompany my elder siblings up to half a kilometer journey to the mountain. This venture entailed fetching firewood, hunting birds, collecting flowers or fishing in the fresh mountain rivers.

I had a big dream of one day climbing to the highest point where I heard there was presence of snow, which I only saw from afar. I anticipated as a young boy to accompany non-African visitors whom I was fond of greeting along the way. I liked the idea of them asking me the name of birds they would sometimes see me holding. Unfortunately, those who had gone far up the mountain told me it was very cold and a boy like me would never make it back alive. It only made me more curious and my anticipation to grow older became obvious.

At 15 years my elder brother who is also a trekking guide put me to a test for my interest and reselience. He provided me with all climbing gears and gave me a 8 kg luggage which was relatively light in weight and told me a guide becomes a porter first . Then with his group, we took off. My pace was slow and undesirable. However, watching elephants, Zebras Monkeys and antelopes was a motivator. There were hundred variety of flowers which in all my life, had I ever seen such a scene with so many colours in one place.

Birds singing were like orchestra in my ears but somehow frightening at night with leopards groaning. At three kilometers on the third day, I could not go further and I used the remaining strength to go back with one porter to accompany me. I did this for the next six trips. I was not given a porter at third time to take me back since I had mastered the routes and was not afraid. When schools closed, I often joined my brother in his treks, particularly I liked august, and December holidays when climbers arrived in large numbers.

I never forget the day we reached Lenana Point which is the peak. The first thing I did was to scoop the cold snow. The sight was marvelous and I knew without doubt I could be a mountain guide. Later I finished my A levels and the experience I had was useful for my training besides having lots of information. I became a junior guide in 1998 after my graduation with National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and Mountain Club of Kenya. Later I connected with several touring networks.

Today I am a registered senior guide and assist hikers climb up to all East Africa Mountains including Mt.Kilimanjaro, Aberdares, and Elgon among others.

Let me be your guide to climbing mountains in East Africa!

mount kilimanjaro
Kilimanjaro, with its three volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira, is an inactive stratovolcano in north-eastern Tanzania and the highest mountain in Africa at 5,895 metres or 19,341 ft above sea level (the Uhuru Peak / Kibo Peak). Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest freestanding mountain as well as the 4th most prominent mountain in the world, rising 5,895 metres or 19,298 ft from the base.

mount meru
Mount Meru is an active stratovolcano located 70 kilometres (43 mi) west of Mount Kilimanjaro in the nation of Tanzania. At a height of 4,565 metres (14,977 ft), it is visible from Mt Kilimanjaro on a clear day, and is the tenth highest mountain in Africa. Mount Meru is the topographic centerpiece of Arusha National Park. Its fertile slopes rise above the surrounding savanna and support a forest that hosts diverse wildlife, including nearly 400 species of birds, and also monkeys and leopards.

oldonyo lengai
"Ol Doinyo Lengai" means "The Mountain of God" in the Maasai language of the native people. The record of eruptions on the mountain dates to 1883, and flows were also recorded between 1904 and 1910 and again between 1913 and 1915. A major eruption took place in June 1917, which resulted in volcanic ash being deposited about 48 kilometres away.
