Safari Highlight

Mount Kipipiri Aberdares

At the heart of Kinangop plateau, which is found in the Aberdare Ranges, sits this beautiful volcanic mountain in the Wanjohi Valley, previously known as the Happy Valley. In the Gikuyu dialect, Kipipiri means “butterfly,” a name given to this mount from the reference of the profile you see from a distance at its summit.

You will need approximately 6-9 hours to go up and down the mount Kipipiri summit. Mount Kupipiri summit stands at an elevation of approximately 3349 AMSL. From Mount Kipipiri summit, you can see the breathtaking view of Lake Naivasha on the Northeast side from a distance of about 32 kilometers.

The distance from Nairobi town to mount Kipipiri is approximately 130 kilometers. You can get to mount Kipipiri from Nairobi or Nakuru in approximately 3-4 hours through the highly accessible roads if you are driving. The hiking starts at a small town known as Geta, where you pick a forest guard and pay the entry fees.
