Nairobi: Mountain Climbing

The hilly terrain surrounding the city of Nairobi makes it a sought after mountain climbing destination. About an hour’s drive away from Nairobi lie several documented routes for climbing. These routes also provide a good place to warm up before embarking on tougher climbs up Mount Kenya. Some routes offer more challenging big wall and bus climbing. In most of these areas you are likely to spot giraffes, zebras and a variety of antelope. Try the Lukenya crag which is one of the better known climbing destinations, just 45 minutes out of Nairobi.
