You will probably set out for Mount Kenya from the capital of Kenya – Nairobi. After the mornings tour around this African city set off for approximately five-hour ride to Chogoria. There is no problem to find accommodation, guide or order transport closer to the mountain.
If you want to save some time, long walk in the farmland along the muddy trail in the mountain forest, set out from Chogoria in a hired car. The destination of this stage is the camp Mount Kenya Bandas situated on very picturesque place at the beginning of mountain savannah.

Last day of the trek awaits you relatively short descent first through savannah, then through bushy surroundings to the gate of the National Park Sirimon Gate (2 650 m asl), so about 700 vertical meters down. From there you can get in an off road vehicle /along far better path than from Chogoria to Mount Kenya Bandas/ first through the forest and then through farmland to the main road and on to the town of Nanyuki. From there already run frequent buses to the surrounding towns.
