Expeditions Trekking and Caving  Chyulu Hills

3/4-Days

Day 1: We leave Nairobi at 0800 and head south to Kibwezi, where we take a track 35kms into the hills. Another 20kms sees us at the campsite, where we walk to ‘Leviathan’, one of the worlds longest lava tube caves. Here we spend the rest of the day exploring sink holes, lava tubes, stalagmites and stalactites, secondary water features all whilst learning how these fascinating features were formed. In the evening, enjoy a three-course meal before retiring to your sleeping bag where you will be lulled to sleep by ‘the sounds of Africa’.

Day 2: Early morning caving or departure by road for the top of the Chyulus’. Here we walk along the crest of undulating grasslands. Viewing herds of Eland is a common event. As are sightings of giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and sometimes even some of the ’big five’. There are also probable views of Mt Kilimanjaro just 50kms away. Camp is made and dinner served after your walk.

Day 3: Full day of walking along the crest of the hills

Mt.Kenya

Mount Kenya is Africa’s second highest mountain at 5,199m (17,058 feet) and the highest of all Kenya Mountains. Mount Kenya is roughly circular, about 60km across at the 200mm contour, where the steep font hills rise out of the gentler slopes of the centered highlands. At the centre of the massif, the main peaks rise sharply from around 4,500m to the main summit of Batian 5,199m, Nelion 5,188m and point Lenana 4,985m. Other major summits on the mountain include Point Piggott 4,957m, Point Dutton 4,885 and Point John 4,883m. Of the three main peaks (Batian, Lenana and Nelion), only point Lenana can be reached by trekkers and the other two being only for technical climbers.

Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro stands on featureless part of the East African plateau, on the Tanzanian side of the Kenya border near Moshi, side by side with the smaller Mount Meru. These mountains are extinct volcanoes, with Kilimanjaro actually being the agglomeration of three distinct volcanoes, Kibo (5896m/ 19,340 ft), Mwenzi (5,149 / 16,896 ft) and Shira (3,962m / 13,000 ft). whose violent creation is geologically associated with the creation of the Great Rift Valley, 100km to the West.

Mount Meru is Mount Kilimanjaro's little sister, standing at 4,566m compared to 5,895m, but is still an impressive freestanding volcano, which makes a superb four day climb to the top. It last erupted in 1910 therefore can be classified as an active volcano. The first Mount Meru ascent was made by Dr. Fritz Jaeger, 1904. The town of Arusha lies at the base of Mount Meru Trekking, loads of trek companies do this trek. Wild animals are frequently found on this mountain therefore an armed ranger usually accompanies the trekkers.
