Blanket of snow on Mount Kenya

After a night of amazing rain, the sun rose over Mount Kenya to reveal a blanket of snow – not just on the peaks, but down as far as 13,000 feet. As the people, livestock and wildlife in Laikipia continue to struggle with drought and grazing shortages, at least most of the rivers are flowing again! Thanks to Timmy Flowers, our heli pilot, for these amazing pictures!

Our dawn helicopter flight around the peaks, with refreshments besides an alpine lake, and a
chance to fly fish for Rainbow trout, is one of our most special and sought after trips. Please click here for a full selection of our day trips in Northern Kenya.
