  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    Hiking has always been my biggest hobby. Hiking Mt. Kenya has been always on my list. It is one of the largest mountains in Africa. I knew it will never be that easy, until I came across this awesome tours and travel company. I had previous bad travel experiences. But they made it so easy. It was well organized. It almost felt like clicking a mere button. The hiking started very smoothly, but it got harder and harder. Every day was different. But in my mind I motivated myself to get to the peak! My way down was not the easiest! It was still quiet a challenging experience!
