Unlock your adventurous side, witness the beauty of Mount Kenya, and bring clean water to Bomet County, Kenya.

Mount Kenya is the largest mountain in Kenya and the second highest in Africa and is a true hidden gem.

It is a UNESCO world heritage site but receives significantly fewer visitors than it's larger, better known sibling, Kilimanjaro, meaning you can feel like you have the entire mountain landscape to yourself.
 
The 5 day trek covers multiple terrains - from landscape encompassing glaciers to high tarns and rock spires - and a whole host of native wildlife is visible throughout. Reaching the summit and watching the sun rise over the vast African plains truly is the experience of a lifetime.

Special Offer!

Why have one epic experience when you can have two?

We're offering you the unique opportunity to have two amazing experiences in one trip - to explore and summit the stunningly beautiful Mount Kenya followed by enjoying our Walk for Water - an immersive cultural experience in Bomet County where you will meet the communities your fundraising has helped to support.

This 14 day trip from 12th October - 25th October 2024 is reserved for a maximum of 20 people and is being offered at a hugely discounted package price with a fundraising target of £3250 - that's a huge £1850 discount compared to if you were to do the two trips separately!

Trip Costs and Inclusions

As a charity, Dig Deep, we organise these trips in house to raise the funds that support our charitable mission. We don't make any profit from these trips, or pay the profits of UK middlemen. This means that your payment and fundraising efforts will either cover the cost of running your trip or be a donation to Dig Deep making our trips the most affordable of any comparable challenge.

Your fundraising is split 50:50 between a charitable donation to Dig Deep, to help bring clean water to Bomet County, Kenya where 65% of people lack access to a safe and reliable water supply, and all your in-country costs associated with your challenge (see breakdown below).

It is completely your decision whether you wish to fundraise the whole amount, fundraise some and pay the remainder yourself or simply self-fund the whole amount but we are committed to offering comprehensive fundraising support to all of our participants.
