AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN MOUNT KENYA WITH AFRICANMECCA

The extraordinary beauty of Mount Kenya National Park inspires you to venture into the wilderness (read more on where to stay). While safari game drives are not allowed due to its fragile ecology, you do enjoy a magnificent tour of Kenya’s iconic mountain with nature walks in the foothills. As one of the world’s highest national parks, Mount Kenya offers breathtaking views and incredible biodiversity. Micro-ecosystems emerge with the changing altitude, and guests easily notice these refined changes in flora and fauna thanks to your AfricanMecca local guide. The experience and knowledge of your guide is a critical part of these walks, as they lend to tracking, locating and identifying terrestrial wildlife, plants, insects, birds and other discoveries. The personable nature of your guide is a welcome part of any walk, as you listen to interesting personal stories, intriguing descriptions of ancient traditions, medicinal uses of plants and the history of the vast land that surrounds you, all from a native viewpoint. Elephants follow well-traveled migration paths through the park, and buffalos are also frequently spotted on the trails. The trees and brush serve as nesting and perching sites for more than 130 bird species, and small rodents, amphibians and reptiles rustle in the undergrowth.

Two of these smaller creatures – grass rats and rock hyraxes – are favorites of the highly elusive leopards. Although less frequently seen, serval cats have also been recorded at Mount Kenya Park. The thick forests hide some of the world’s most-valued species, such as giant forest hogs, sunis, black-fronted duikers, to name only a few of the foragers and grazers. The most noteworthy resident of the park, though, is an animal that AfricanMecca guests seek out with great anticipation – bongos. As one of Kenya’s rarest animals, seeing one of these forest antelopes would be the stand-out moment of an already memorable safari trip in the outback of Kenya. Your guide is an expert at recognizing signs of these animals, such as footprints and scat, increasing the likelihood of discerning the distinct white stripes and reddish coat amongst the trees. Bongos are quite shy and easily panicky, so be prepared to remain quiet and look swiftly when instructed by your guide. If you choose to stay inside the park at Serena Mountain Lodge, wildlife viewing is as easy as relaxing on your private verandah. The lodge is well-sited near areas where animals forage and drink. Birdlife is abundant around the lodge, so you spend your days updating your birding journal without ever leaving the property. Recorded species include hartlaub’s turaco, cinnamon-chested bee-eater, jackson’s francolin, hoopoe, hunter’s cisticola, sharpe’s pipit and many more! For the most adventurous African travelers, we can arrange climbing treks up Mount Kenya. When staying in the suburbs at Mount Kenya Safari Club, you can go on horse riding, play a round of golf, visit the William Holden Animal Orphanage and much more.
