Memorable Highlights Along the Way Throughout the expedition, trekkers can look forward to captivating sights such as mesmerizing waterfalls cascading down rocky slopes, ancient glaciers clinging to Mount Kenya's peaks, and the ethereal beauty of the night sky in the high-altitude wilderness. These moments create lasting memories and add to the allure of the trek.

Begin your day with a delightful breakfast served at the hotel to energize your morning. Following breakfast, embark on a scenic drive through the central part of the country. Along the way, take advantage of opportunities to visit fascinating pineapple, tea, and coffee plantations.

While journeying, indulge in some wildlife viewing en route to your lunch destination. In the afternoon, seize the chance to encounter the Northern white rhinos within the 700-acre endangered species enclosure, as well as Grevy's zebras and Jackson's hartebeests. As the day winds down, return to the hotel for a satisfying dinner and a restful night's stay.

Day 05 Hiking to Lake Michaelson

Following breakfast, venture onto the trail that winds through lush glades of evergreen trees, leading away from Lake Ellis along its western fringe. Trek across the moorland until reaching a ridge that links up with the primary Chogoria Trail.

Pause for a picnic lunch featuring hot soup while relishing the breathtaking vistas of the Vivienne Falls and the scenic valleys of Gorges Valley as you descend towards the enchanting camping site nestled beside Lake Michaelson.

Indulge in a delightful dinner and settle in for the night at Lake Michaelson, renowned as one of the most stunning high-altitude lakes in the entire country.
