Mount Kenya might only be Africa’s second-highest mountain, but it’s considerably more beautiful than it’s bigger cousin, Kilimanjaro. Mount Kenya and its surrounding National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and while the highest peaks of Batian and Nelion are only accessible to mountaineers, third-highest Point Lenana (4985m) can be reached by hikers. Most travel up the picturesque Chogoria route, with sightings of elephants, buffalo and impala, before descending to the Sirimon Park gate.
