Kenya's highest mountain, (5,199 m/ 17,058ft) with its snow-capped peaks in stark contrast to the dry grassland all around is a sight to behold. The mountain also straddles the Equator.
Mount Kenya also has a fair splattering of wildlife, particularly on the lower slopes of the mountain. You can expect to see elephant, rhino, buffalo leopard, bushbuck, several species of duiker, giant forest hog, and colobus and Sykes monkeys. There is also prolific birdlife around the mountain, ranging from huge eagles to multicoloured sunbirds.
The lower area makes up the Mt Kenya Forest Reserve and contains the greatest number of species of indigenous trees. Higher up, bamboo dominates.
