We specialize in helping both seasoned hikers and novice walkers achieve their goals of a rewarding expedition to the heights of Africa. We prefer guiding trips on three main routes to Kilimanjaro as well as three main routes to Mount Kenya. We also guide a trip to the Rwenzoris and Mt Stanley.
If you have conquered all of those mountain areas we can also create custom tours in the Aberdares, the Loita Hills, the Udzunga Mountains and other off the beaten path trips.
Ice Rock Trekking is one of the few Kenyan tour operators that is qualified to guide technical rock climbers on trips to Mount Kenya. In fact the first name for our company was “Ice Rock Climbing” so we know how to plan and prepare for the needs of climbers which is distinct and different than trekkers. Only a few hundred people make the tricky climb to the true roof of Kenya and we are experts at providing informative and safe route descriptions and onsite guiding.
A trip to Africa is not complete without seeing “the Big Five” which are the elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros, lion, and leopard. Safaris are an especially delightful experience to enjoy after the hard work of summiting some of Africa’s highest peaks. Ice Rock Trekking can organize a tour that brings you up close and personal with amazing wildlife in their natural habitat. The Masai Mara is one of the world’s treasures and something that should not be skipped when visiting Kenya or Tanzania. We can also organize gorilla safaris!
