Her spectacular snow- capped peaks create a stunning backdrop all year- round, and are crowned to be the only snow- blessed point on the equator. Africa's most stunning mountain treasures sweeping valleys infused with jeweled streams and lucent- colored birds who will befriend you on sight.

Mount Longonot is a stratovolcano located southeast of Lake Naivasha in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, Africa. It is thought to have last erupted in the 1860s. Its name is derived from the Maasai word oloonong'ot, meaning "mountains of many spurs" or "steep ridges". A trail runs from the park entrance up to the crater rim, and continues in a loop encircling the crater.

The mountain's highest point, named "Wagagai", is located entirely within the country of Uganda. It is the oldest and largest solitary volcano in East Africa, covering an area of around 3500 kmē.

Burget - Chogoria Route

This is the route we proudly boast about, having relaunched it ourselves after more than 30 years of dis-use. The route was pioneered during colonial days and then abandoned for many years until it was re-opened by us in the early 90s. Going up this route is quite challenging: rough underfoot going through bushy track more used by wild animals than humans, muddy when wet, no huts and with dense stands of giant bamboo and montane forest. So why are we so passionate about it? Well, it's for those who want a different experience away from the crowd. It provides a unique and completely natural mountain trekking experience. Up to Point Lenana then descent on the Chogoria route provides the most spectacular views and completes a traverse of the mountain. Accommodation on the trek is one night in a comfortable lodge, 5 nights camping and one night in Bandas at the end of the trip. When camping on our trips you will not have to participate in camp chores. All your equipment will be carried by local porters on the mountain, you only carry a day-pack with personal gear. For catering we buy fresh produce locally and to ensure good standards of hygiene all food is prepared by our own staff and can cater for special dietary requirements and there are no extra food-kitty payments.

The record of eruptions on the mountain dates to 1883, and flows were also recorded between 1904 and 1910 and again between 1913 and 1915. A major eruption took place in June 1917, which resulted in volcanic ash being deposited about 48 kilometres away.
