Fishing on Mount Kenya

Insider’s Take

Fly fishing enthusiasts have an eye out for big, wild trout, of course, but also for spectacular scenery, and Mount Kenya offers some of the world’s best of both for safari travellers looking to cast a line.

Snow and glacier melt from Africa’s second highest and most elegantly dramatic mountain flows down the peak’s broad slopes, creating a beautiful myriad of waterfall-fed pools and rivulets that were long ago stocked with brown and rainbow trout by Kenyan and British sportsmen.

We’re adept at arranging expertly guided fishing excursions for our luxury safari guests that take us high on the mountain—via helicopter or 4 wheel-drive vehicles—to explore those crystalline streams in search of the Mount Kenya’s hearty rainbow and brown trout, some of which reach 12 pounds.
