east africa

In 2007 I spent ten days in east africa to climb Mount Kenya, the second highest peak on the continent after Kilimanjaro. The mountain and it's surrounding area is famous for it's varied scenery. I actually made it to the top of Point Lenana (4985m). Unfortunately, the views from the top were limited due to snowfall. I also did some wildlife spotting in the Samburu National Reserve and the Lake Nakuru National Park.

tour info

This tour in 2007 was organized by Hauser Exkursionen, Germany. For the traverse of Mount Kenya our small group was joined by a local mountain guide.


If you're hiking in heavy rain for a period of three days, finally getting out of your wet clothes and into dry ones can be considered a highlight
