THE BEST MOUNTAINS IN KENYA - PART 1


1. Mount Kenya

Mount Kenya, about 10 miles south of the equator and 90 miles northeast of Nairobi, is the tallest mountain in Kenya. Set within Mount Kenya National Park, which was established to protect the mountain, it is also the second tallest mountain in Africa, second only to Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro. The mountain stands at a total height of 5199 meters (17,057 feet)

Mount Kenya is unique in that it actually features twin peaks which are usually snow-capped. The entire mountain, in fact, receives substantial snow, and provides fresh water to almost seven million people across Kenya. Home to elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, antelope and other species.

 

2. Mount Elgon

Mount Elgon is Kenya’s second tallest peak after Mount Kenya. It is located on the western Kenya-Uganda border. It may not be the highest, but it has a few distinguishing features of its own. It features one of the world’s largest calderas or volcanic craters, and its summit is a flat-topped plateau of basalt. It stands at a total height of 13,852 feet (or 4,155 meters). Lava tube tunnels dot the mountain, which is a favourite haunt of local elephants and buffaloes. Eagles, rhinos, duikers, and leopards live in the national park that surrounds Mount Elgon.

 

3. Mount Longonot

Mount Longonot is a stratovolcano located southeast of Lake Naivasha in the Rift Valley. A forest of small trees covers the crater floor, and small steam vents are found spaced around the walls of the crater. The mountain is home to various species of wildlife, notably zebra, giraffe, buffalos and hartebeest.
