Mt Kenya hike
Jul. 2019 • Business
For the second time Ahambi tours organized the best possible hike for my students,talking of value for money would be an understatement. The guides were perfect,cautious,caring always encouraging my boys to make it to peak Lenana. The foods served by them is delicious and well prepared, much more than you would expect being on a mountain hike which is a testament to the kind of unique service they are providing. Everyone made it to the peak and left with life-long memories thanks to Ahambi tours guide.
