The African panorama is never more breathtaking than when viewed from the air. Both fixed wing aircraft and helicopters can be chartered to give guests a birdís eye view of the landscape around Mount Kenya.
The ice-capped peaks of Mount Kenya are visible from almost anywhere on Borana. This magnificent 17,058-foot mountain, which straddles the equator, has an eco-system of its own. It is a place of great natural beauty and is sacred to the Kikuyu people.
A leisurely way to see the mountain is to spend a night or two at Rutundu Ė a couple of small but extremely comfortable cabins that sleep six people in great style. Rutundu is a wonderful place for walking and the fishing there and at the slightly higher Lake Alice is extremely rewarding. There is fishing tackle kept for guests at the cabin.
The more adventurous guests might like to tackle the mountain on foot. The climb takes a minimum of three to four days and requires no specialist equipment. Porters, warm clothing and a sense of adventure are however, essential.
