"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's piece will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy while cares will drop off like Autumn Leaves

”John Muir (American Naturalist)


The main East African mountains are Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Range which are located wholly within Kenya to the north of Nairobi. Mount Elgon lies astride the Uganda-Kenya border. Kilimanjaro extends along Tanzania’s northern boundary with Kenya while Mount Meru is in northern Tanzania. The Ruwenzori range stretches between Lakes Edward and Albert on the Uganda-Congo border, and farther south the Virunga mountains extend along the contiguous borders of Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo.


Arch Treks and Safaris will provide you with some thrilling opportunities to experience the best of African adventure within a challenging but safe environment. We are professionals in assessing risk and implementing systems to reduce any recognized danger to a minimum.

The diverse range of vegetation types creates a similarly diverse range of wildlife habitats. The stunning sceneries and cheerful superhuman porters, the sweat and tears that go into a successful trek to the summit are part of the extraordinary and outstanding sense of achievement one experiences while standing on the summit and watching the sun rise over Africa.

Our formula for success is the use of professional guides, well paid porters and crew, going slower, giving enough rest between stages and acclimatization time. What you eat and where you sleep is also very important.

You can discover a great deal about yourself through this adventure, but only if the experience is of extremely high quality and professionally organized. As such we do what we know we are good at; delivering superb results. You don't need to be super human. Average fitness and determination is all it takes.

Itineraries can be tailored to suit ones requirements.
