Mount Kenya Kit List

The basic idea of your kit is to keep you warm, dry, protected and comfortable from the sun and rain. The main principles are:-

Camping Equipment
Clothing
Accessories

Sleeping Bag: one rated to between -10o and 0o centigrade should be fine.
Bag should be a snug fit since if it is too large there will be more cool
air for the body to warm.

* Hiking Boots: it is vital to have a comfortable, waterproof pair of
boots. Make sure they have been broken in before you get on the
mountain.
* Pair of sports shoes: for wearing around camp
* Gloves

* Balaclava
* Woolen hat
* Sun hat or baseball cap
* Waterproof jacket and trousers
* Windproof jacket
* Fleece
* Lots of t-shirts
* Lots of warm socks
* Warm long trousers
* Shorts
* Jersey
* Thermal underwear

* Head Torch
* Large rucksack: for all the clothes and equipment (for the porter to
carry)
* Small rucksack: for carrying water, snacks, camera, waterproofs on
the day hikes.

as a hot water bottle at night.
