Mt. Kasigau is part of the Eastern Arch Mountains renowned for its endemic Flora and Fauna. A gazetted national forest topped with tropical forest, this3-hour ascent, 1641 meters above sea level, requires tough training shoes. Discover a World War 1 British encampment, with visible trenches and hideouts, identify rare trees and birds and enjoy learning as you ascend more about the culture of the local Taita people.
The picturesque ‘Are Rock’ Python rock, which caved in due to weathering, has a hut which acted as a hide out for the villagers against cattle rustlers and now a good backdrop for a selfie, as you climb. The drive from Lions Bluff is taken across the sisal estate and takes two hours. Time permitting you may visit the sisal basket weavers. Best start before first light with packed picnic breakfast and lunch.
