A dawn heli-excursion around the peaks of Mount Kenya, with the option to land besides one of the alpine lakes for refreshments and to take in the fresh mountain air, the unique vegetation and spectacular scenery; and for anyone keen, a chance to fly fish for Rainbow trout. The length of time spent on the ground depends on the weather conditions - cloud often descends by 11am.
Due to weather conditions, this excursion is done only in the early morning with pick up from your lodge at 7:00am to be on the mountain and around the peaks by 8:00am.
PLEASE NOTE : If you wish to land on Mount Kenya we only allow 4 passengers. Should it only be a scenic flight around the peaks, then we can accept 5 passengers (landing tax fee of €60 for each passengers)
This is a strict policy due to safety with landing on the mountain at altitude.
