Overview

Book
This twin peak trekking holiday, aims to summit the trekkers peak on Mt Kenya (4985m) and Kilimanjaro (5895m), and is the ultimate East African mountain challenge. On no other holiday can you see the sunrise from the highest mountains in both Kenya and Tanzania and the whole of Africa. Additionally bringing the two summits together increases the success rate on Kilimanjaro dramatically as we are better acclimatised to the altitude and environment. We begin our 2-week holiday on Mount Kenya, where we trek the superb 6-day traverse of Kenya's highest mountain via the Chogoria and Sirimon routes. We will encounter few other trekkers on this beautiful and much under-rated peak. Travelling overland to Tanzania through the African plains and wildlife spotting, we start our Kilimanjaro climb by way of the Machame Route. This path leads through luxuriant rainforest and then across the alpine tundra of the Shira plateau with its giant lobelia, to the glaciated crater rim of Africa's highest peak. We will stand at the summit of Kilimanjaro at sunrise and glory at the wonders of the clouds and African plains below. A magnificent feeling which you take home with you forever.

Both Moses and Onex were outstanding, but for me Peter Kisimbo was the best of all (on Kili). He was so gentle and encouraging, and I really don't think I would have made it to the summit without him. Can you pass on my warm thanks to him, and the other two. Isa was something of a magician producing wonderful food - I only wish I had had the appetite to fully appreciate it all. You have a really great team of leaders there. The Trip was better than I had expected, as all the connections etc. were so seamless and organisation and consideration for us all was excellent.

The acclimatisation on Mt Kenya was a strong selling point - the only operator that seems to do this - also I got to see more of Kenya. A very well organised trip with excellent back-up and food throughout, I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

The KE website is very detailed and easy to use. The dossier contained all the pertinent information. I had several email exchanges with Chloe and others that helped me with some decisions (about what to do with my extra time after the trek). I talked to Phil on the phone several times; his feedback was invaluable. It was amazing what the cooks created every day! The food and service were excellent; the porters were incredible. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. It was a great adventure!!

Stunning views from both Kenya and Kilimanjaro. The guides were real experts, and the food was terrific on both trips, as was the overall hospitality of our trek crew.

This is definitely one of the company's strengths relative to other providers. Hotels are good for the local environment, and all arrangements go smoothly. Tents and equipment are always in good working order (and porta-loo much appreciated in Kili)! The standard of food on both treks was terrific - nutritious, varied and generally appetizing, with healthy balance of fresh fruit and verges throughout. Full credit to Gregory and James and their catering crew - food is so important to energy and morale! Guides and porters are all great guys - fit, organised, polite and cheerful - lots of laughs and very fond memories. I expect the company have a great 'success' rate in getting people to the top (as we experienced also at Everest) - "poli, poli"! Mt Kenya was ideal acclimatization and a great trek in its own right, but the Guides are terrific - very experienced and know exactly what it takes to keep the group (male and female, aged 24-59) motivated, enthused and on track! From the moment we arrived in Nairobi to the moment we departed Arusha, Clive and Rasheed were very engaged - they made contact early, and followed up post-trek to ensure everyone was happy and satisfied. We sensed a high level of mutual respect and organisational loyalty between local agents, their crews and parent, which all contributed greatly to a very well organised and executed trek. Absolutely First Class! We are big fans of using local Guides, and Eddie and Moses (Kenya), and Onex, JV and Michael (Kili

Mt Kenya is an absolute treasure and a pleasure to trek. I was not prepared for the amount of people on Mt Kilimanjaro and this did tend to spoil the experience a little. In saying that our crew were very sensitive to this and where ever possible set up our camps a bit further away from the majority of the groups. The pace was very good and provided the best opportunities to acclimatize properly. I enjoyed the opportunities to talk to our trip leaders and to find out more about their countries, their way of life and about the plants and animals of the areas. Both of our trip leaders for the Kenya and Tanzania legs of our trips were excellent. Our Trip Leader for Mt Kilimanjaro Elias is an amazing man who is a real custodian of the park. His knowledge and enthusiasm is excellent and his willingness to help others less prepared or injured was fantastic to see.
