Mt Kenya - Day Five
Martin writes... After ten hours of walking yesterday we arrived at the Kenya Wildlife Service campsite at 3000m ASL.  The staff at the campsite were very efficient - within an hour each room had a fire going, and the hot water was being heated for a well deserved shower.

Still not out of the danger zone, I neglected to drink enough water so awoke with another stonking headache and a very bloated face!  No walking today - this time we were being chauffeured via old Land Rovers to Chogoria village (30kms) and then catching the KG Expeditions mini-van back to Nairobi.

We cannot begin to tell you how much fun the two-hour 'mud slide' down the mountain in the old Land Rovers was - watch the video clip for all the action!
