For the enthusiastic climber, why not take on Mount Kenya? Africa’s second tallest peak and is often considered a more challenging climb than Mount Kilimanjaro. Apart from Mount Kenya, there are climbing opportunities of all grades in the Aberdare, Cherangani and Mathews ranges, in Hell’s Gate National Park and on the Rift Valley volcanoes, including Longonot and Suswa.
White-water rafting and kayaking on the Tana River are popular activities. Hell’s Gate National Park is an absolute must for all, where you can witness blasts of steam issuing from the volcanic rock – giving the park its name. Caving is another popular activity in Kenya.
