Mount Kenya National Park

At 5199m high, Mount Kenya is Africa's second highest mountain. It offers easy or challenging ascents with superb scenic beauty. To the Kikuyu tribes people it is the home of the Supreme Being; Ngai, a god that resides here. Part of the mountain's fascination is the variation in flora and fauna as the altitude changes. The lower slopes are covered with dry upland forest, the true mountane (mountain) forest begins at 2000m is mainly cedar and podo.

At 2500m begins a belt of bamboo forest which merges into the upper forest of smaller trees, interspersed with glades. The high altitude heath at the top (3000-3500m) is generally open, dotted with shrubs, African sage, protea and helicrysum.

Animals found here are Sunni buck, Mount Kenya mole, shrew, skinks (lizard) and variety of owls. Occasional sightings have been recorded of albino zebra.
