The Kenya Quest Expedition 2018 will involve community aid and wildlife conservation work on the slopes of Mt Kenya (5199m). This internationally significant protected zone is a World Heritage Site with a wide variety of wildlife.
Working with the Mt Kenya Trust the expedition is building a new classroom for a primary school, giving medical and dental aid and carrying out patrols to aid the protection of the fauna and flora especially the elephants.
Movement will be by horse (for those who can ride) or on foot.
The second part of the expedition will be in Laikipia County North of Nanyuki assisting with the study of the numerous wildlife and aiding the local population and the various conservation projects. The team will be accommodated in tents at the El Karama Eco-Lodge, moving by foot and in vehicles.
The area is on the equator and in January it should be dry with daily temperatures around 77 ̊F, but cooler in the evenings, especially on the slopes of Mount Kenya. This is an expedition for those interested in wildlife and aiding the local communities. The team of 18-20 will meet in Nairobi on 14th January 2018 and the expedition will end there on 30th January. John Blashford-Snell will lead the expedition.
