High90 Altitude Rush - two hikers on top of a mountain with hands raised

High90 Altitude Rush – Training for Kilimanjaro

The Outdoorer High90 Altitude Rush Program is a progressive 12-week advanced hiker course specially designed with three key goals in mind: orient you to hiking the high altitudes, build endurance to conditions in the high altitudes, and ready you up for any major independent mountaineering after that–such as Mt. Kilimanjaro or Mt. Kenya climbs.

Northern Nyandarua Circuit – Bundled Ticket

The Nyandarua Ranges (Aberdares) are known for their high altitude, rolling moorland, and breathtaking views, yet hiking through most of the trails is an arduous task. The Northern Nyandarua Circuit moorland trails are especially scenic, featuring kilometers upon kilometers of shimmering golden moorland. However, getting to the scenic moorland is a whole different story.

Seven Ponds Hike

Located conveniently between the notoriously steep Table Mountain and Rurimeria trails, the Seven Ponds hike combines the dramatic steepness of her two siblings. The 5.5km trail starts near the Kwa Matu Shopping center and ends at an elevation of 3,831m at the seven natural ponds in the northern Nyandarua moorland.

Wandare Dash – Oldoinyo Lesatima Second Trail

We immerse ourselves into the Nyandarua magic all over again, this time on a less-frequented gentle trail to the highest point of the third-highest mountain in Kenya, Oldoinyo Lesatima. Our access gate of choice is the Wandare Gate, off the Nyeri-Nyahururu highway near Mweiga.

We begin our expedition by driving 17km into the park, through the dense bamboo forest, to get to the trail starting point in the lower moorland. We then hit the gentle 9km trail through the beautiful-beautiful golden moorland to get to the Oldoinyo Lesatima peak at 4,001m above sea level.
