African Ascents

Operates in:

Kenya, Tanzania


African Ascents has been in operation since 2012. The focus of the company is to create a unique trekking experience, first-class guided technical climbing, and professional rock-climbing experiences. Our expedition options are mainly focused around Mt Kenya and other locations within Kenya. Outside of Kenya, we focus on Mt Kilimanjaro and the Himalayas. Our plan with the Himalayas is to take mountaineers from Africa to experience this mountain range. We aim to later run expeditions to The Ruwenzori’s and the Atlas Mountains.

The company was the creation of Julian Wright and Tom Gregory. Both experienced trekkers and climbers living on the slopes on Mt Kenya. Mt Kenya is a fantastic mountain for all types of mountaineers and trips can be designed around the specific requirements of each individual group. However, what makes Mt Kenya unique is technical climbing, this is the best technical alpine climbing in Africa.
