Anne Tissier,
… In Kenya since 1990, professional tour guide in Kenya & Tanzania, specializing in walking safaris in some of the Africa’s most remote areas, yet never on Mount Kenya. When she turned 60 early 2018 she said,
"if not now, then when…" and the whole project started!
Lucy Booth,
… Set up Kenya Treks in 2009, offering tailor-made trips to Mount Kenya. Lucy is based in London and visits Kenya at least twice a year, always including a trip to the mountain which she loves to explore.
She is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
Joan Dickie,
…has loved walking in the mountains since her childhood near the Lake District and university years in Wales. Based both in Nanyuki and Norfolk, UK, Joan ran her first marathon (London) last year aged 65 (!) followed by the Lewa half marathon, which she is repeating this year.
The Kenya Treks team,
… all live in and around Nanyuki and have worked on the mountain since their early 20’s. Head Guide John Karumba and Assistant Guide James Ngacha will be leading the expedition from Rutundu to the Sirimon Gate.
The Mount Kenya Trust Horse Patrol team
… for the first day. Nyota and his Ethiopian friends, with MKT Executive Director Susie Weeks, Gabriel andAnthony, to lead the way.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for supporting us with so much enthusiasm.
Without you, this project wouldn’t have been the same.

THANK YOU for your generosity !

All proceeds will be shared between the Mount Kenya Trust Horse Patrol Team (90%) and the Mount Kenya Rescue Team (10%)
