Mountain Climbing

Mt. Kasigau and the towering Taita Hills are part of the ancient Eastern Arc Mountains range that stretches from northeastern Tanzania into southwestern Kenya. Formed over 100 million years ago by the seismic shifts of the Great Rift Valley, these mountains are now recognized as one of the top 20 most biodiverse regions on Earth. At 1,650 meters above sea level, Mt. Kasigau can be summited in a 6 to 8 hour hike via the Rukanga route, which is conveniently accessible from the Taita Wildlife Conservancy.
