Mt. Kenya is the highest mountain in Kenya and the second highest in Africa. It is one of the few places near the equator on Africa with permanent glaciers, a mountain where snow occurs naturally across the equator. This is where the country’s name was derived from, formerly known as Mount Kirinyaga.

The mountain is located 180 kilometres north of the capital city, Nairobi and it can often be seen from high-rise buildings in Nairobi and from Thika town, a region known for the existence of a large pineapple plantation - the ‘Delmonte’. It is an extinct volcano, which formed a couple of million years ago. The mountain is located in the Mount Kenya National Park, which is a designated protected area around the mountain above 3200m altitude, managed by The Kenya Wildlife Service. .
