Ol Donyo Le Satima popularly known as Mt. Satima is the 3rd largest mountain in Kenya standing at approximately 4001m ASL is the immediate neighbor to a number of sharp volcanic cones called “the Dragon’s Teeth”. Dragon’s Teeth is a sporadic spread of jagged rocks that rise above the consistently wet moorlands in Northern Aberdares. Join us as we take on this scenic hike on the Moorland.
Meet for Departure at 0530hrs in the morning promptly. We drive north from Nairobi and a few kilometers after Nyeri, branch off towards the mountains. The drive up the mountain is slow but scenic as the tropical rain forest gives way to the moorland vegetation. Ascend 6km in the mountain to reach an altitude of 3450m at the Twin peaks point. From here you can see the nearby Chebuswa peaks. The view and beautiful rock formations in Kenya. They include the Lost Pyramid, Weathering Heights, Devil’s Sword, Theater of Heaven, and finally the Dragons Teeth with stunning rock formations. After a short rest we set the tents and enjoy the dinner.
