Mount Kenya Chogoria Route

Tour Details

TOUR OVERVIEW

The Mount Kenya Chogoria Route presents a captivating trekking journey characterized by its scenic diversity. Embarking from the Chogoria Gate at 2,850 meters, participants are immersed in the beauty of tropical rainforests, gradually ascending through heather and moorland zones, and finally reaching alpine landscapes. The route’s diverse ecosystems offer a unique and enriching experience for trekkers seeking adventure on the slopes of Mount Kenya.

The trek unfolds with an overnight stay at Mount Meru Bandas (3,000 meters), providing a gentle introduction to the mountain environment and a crucial starting point for acclimatization. Moving forward, Road Head Camp (3,300 meters) serves as a strategic location, offering panoramic views of the Gorges Valley and Lake Michaelson. This stop provides a memorable experience amid the heather and moorland zones, enhancing the overall trekking journey.

Mintos Hut (4,300 meters) plays a pivotal role as a designated acclimatization point. Nestled in a landscape characterized by its unique flora and fauna, Mintos Hut allows participants to adjust to the increasing altitude, ensuring they are well-prepared for the upcoming summit push.

The highlight of the trek is the summit ascent to Point Lenana (4,985 meters), the third-highest peak of Mount Kenya. Commencing early in the morning, trekkers are rewarded with a breathtaking sunrise and panoramic views that make the challenging climb truly worthwhile. The descent then leads to Chogoria Bandas (2,900 meters), providing a comfortable resting place after the triumphant summit achievement.

A dedicated acclimatization day strategically placed at Mintos Hut ensures trekkers’ well-being and enhances their ability to appreciate the stunning landscapes and diverse environments encountered along the route. The descent through bamboo and rainforest zones further promotes safety, allowing for a gradual return to lower altitudes.

The trek concludes with a return to Chogoria Town, serving as the gateway for participants to transition back to lower elevations before heading back to Nairobi. The Mount Kenya Chogoria Route, with its captivating landscapes and challenging yet rewarding ascent, stands as a testament to the allure of one of Africa’s most majestic peaks.

Ein fantastisches Erlebnis- Besteigung des Kilimandscharos Wir waren mit Bee Adventure Safaris auf dem Kilimandscharo. Es war ein fantastisches Erlebnis und perfekt organisiert von Bee Adventure. Im Hotel in Arusha kamen unsere 3 Guides Isack, Michael und Joffrey vorbei, um unsere Ausrüstung gewissenhaft zu überprüfen. Am nächsten Tag ging’s los. Wir wurden von einigen Porters, einem Koch und unseren drei Guides abgeholt und zum Ausgangspunkt der Marangu Route gebracht. Der Aufstieg begann. Während der Tour wurden wir von unserem Koch Nelson ausgezeichnet bekocht. Unser Waiter servierte uns täglich das Frühstück, Mittag- und Abendessen. Heißes Wasser zum Waschen und Tee brachte er uns morgens sogar ans Bett. Unsere Guides waren sehr bemüht und führten täglich einen Gesundheits-Check bei uns durch. Abends gab es immer ein Briefing, wie der nächste Tag verläuft. Wir haben uns sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Unsere Guides unterstützten uns bei allem, trugen sogar unsere Rucksäcke, wenn es am Gipfeltag notwendig wurde und brachten unsere Gruppe schlussendlich auf den Uhuru Peak. Vielen, vielen Dank an Isack und sein Team! Wir können Bee Adventure Safari absolut empfehlen!!

Best experience with Bee Adventure Safaris We did a two day-one night safari in Ngorongoro and Hadzabe tribe at Lake Eyasi in December 2022 and Izack made sure that everything was perfect. To fulfill all our wishes, he made a detour so that we could visit a witch-doctor and a Masai village, on our way back to Arusha, with no extra cost. The lodge we spent the night was very good and its chef was a suprise, as all meals served (dinner, breakfast and lunch) were just delicious. Izack and his team were very supportive from the very beginning (booking phase) until the end of our trip and we highly recommend booking with them. Hope to meet them again soon for a new roadtrip in Uganda and Rwanda!

Wonderful experience that included everything Our wish was to visit the Materuni Waterfall starting from Arusha and to keep the costs as low as possible. From the beginning Isaac was super friendly and understanding and asked us about our wishes and arranged a wonderful tour to the waterfall which even included a coffee tour and a local lunch. We went by public transport and Isaac was with us from the beginning to the end of the tour. During the tour, we asked to go to Maji Moto which was on the way. Isaac made it possible at no extra and we had a nice day and all our wishes were fulfilled. I’m looking forward to see you again rafiki yangu!

Climbing Mt Meru: very obliging and very nice guides From the very beginning our guide Isaac was very nice and accommodating. Booking was very easy and flexible. Our flights got cancelled and postponed and our booking to climb Mount Meru was easily postponed without any problems. The whole team (guides, porters and cook) have been super nice throughout the whole trip and were very encouraging and motivating to climb the Meru when we were very tired. They made sure we were hydrated and eating enough, so we have energy to climb. The whole time our schedule was clear and we were always supported. On top the guides were very funny and pleasant to be around with. I will climb with them again! 🙂 and recommend their company to my friends.

Big recommendation We booked a safari in February and experienced an awesome trip with Bee Adventure Safaris. We booked a full package including flights from Sasibar to Arusha and back, as well as an accomodation and the two-day-safari itself. The drivers were on time, the food was amazing and the tour guide Reagon did an excellent job. We would always choose them again!
