Guiding Fees

Mount Kenya Expedition

Because of the many variables of trip length and route we have created the fee table below. To price your trip you need to determine how many days it will be and how many climbers are in your group.

Please give us a call or email to discuss the various options. As a suggestion, 8 days – Nairobi return – is a good length for a climb of Nelion. And 10 days is a good length for Batian via the North Side route.
