Visiting Mount Kenya

We've always considered Mount Kenya as one of the most important symbols and attractions for any adventure travelers going to Kenya, especially climbers, hikers and mountains fans. Mount Kenya is also the source of the name of the Republic of Kenya. There are eight walking routes up to the main peaks. Starting clockwise from the north these are the: Meru, Chogoria, Kamweti, Naro Moru, Burguret, Sirimon and Timau Routes. Of these Chogoria, Naro Moru and Sirimon and used most frequently and therefore have staffed gates. The other routes require special permission from the Kenya Wildlife Service to use.

Mount Kenya has been listed by the New York Times as one of the top 52 places to visit in 2020.

Thanks to the New York Times, one of the most important newspaper in the World, Mount Kenya's going to get more traction from adventurers willing to mounteer, hike and climb in exotic destinations like Kenya. Furthermore Kenya is going to be more considered as a major country for adventure travels in Africa.

Thanks very much New York Time.

Video: Tarangire National Park, Tanzania

Presentation

Let's discover one of the most iconic national parks in Tanzania, the Tarangire National Park. It's another great occasion for adventure travelers to explore fauna and flora in this country. Tarangire National Park is situated in Tanzania's Manyara Region. The name of the park originates from the Tarangire River that crosses the park and is the primary source of fresh water for wild animals in the Tarangire Ecosystem during the annual dry season. We consider the dry season as the best for adventurers to go for a safari in the national park. The main reason is the fact the Tarangire Ecosystem is defined by the long-distance migration of wildebeest, cape buffalo and zebras. During the dry season thousands of animals concentrate in Tarangire National Park from the surrounding wet-season dispersal and calving areas.
