School Trips

Ice Rock has considerable experience leading large groups of children from Kenya's schools on our tours. The trek to Point Lenana on Mount Kenya is the most popular. Our school clients have, in recent years, included:

Kenya Schools:
The Banda School
Peponi School
Cavina School
Pembroke House
St Andrews, Turi
Nairobi Academy
Kenton College

International Schools:
Highcliff
Arch Bishop

Most of these schools have used our services several times in recent years. As always, Ice Rock's main priorities are safety and enjoyment, and our guides and porters have much experience helping children up the mountain.

Our team of guides, porters and cooks helps them do this in safety and without discomfort. Some children will suffer from the effects of altitude sickness, and are susceptible to dehydration and exhaustion, but our experienced team keeps a close watch on them all to ensure their journey up Mount Kenya turns into an experience of a lifetime.

Mountain Cuisine: The menus for all climbs are specially prepared to provide a balanced diet of fresh fruit, vegetables, plenty of protein and carbohydrates. We have tried to choose food items that are easiest to digest at high altitude. Our cooks undergo extensive training and we have ongoing workshops to review menus. The cooks are particularly vigilant in  their hygiene practices as contracting stomach bugs is common for visitors to the developing world.

Dinners are typically a main course with vegetable and salad. Chicken and fish are served at some of the days during the climb, with pastas and rice dishes being served in the middle of the climb while up high. Lunches are often on the trail and usually consist of cold cuts and  vegetables laid out on a table so you can make your own sandwich. Fresh  hot vegetable soups are served at every meal, and packet soup is  available on request between meals as is coffee and tea. Breakfast is  your choice: granola, toast, fruit, eggs, and sometimes pancakes or French toast. While hiking some people have a favorite snack that they like; it is a good idea to bring this from home.

Fit to trek. The Machame Route is a strenuous, but not technical, climb and no mountain-climbing experience is necessary. But there's no avoiding the steep ascents and high altitudes that make robust physical fitness (and a minimum age of 16 years) a prerequisite for this trip. You'll want to consult your physician before undertaking this unforgettable adventure. Alternative independent itineraries. These include the more remote anddemanding Rongai, Shira, Umbwe and Western Breach routes - ask for details.
