Summit the twin peaks of Mount Kenya (4985m) and Kilimanjaro (5895m) on this ultimate mountain trek
This twin peak trekking holiday, aims to summit the trekker’s 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.
