Mt Kenya National Park in detail

Flights & getting there

Short of hiring your own helicopter, the only way to reach the summit of Mt Kenya is on foot, and if you're starting your climb in the village of Naro Moru, you can set out directly from there. Naro Moru is a three-hour drive from Nairobi and is accessible in a 2WD car. If you are hiking the Sirimon or Chogoria routes, you may need a 4WD with high clearance to get to the gate, particularly if it has rained recently, though most trekking companies will pick you up from a nearby town for an extra fee.
