“To unwrap the world, one destination at a time.” Mountain slayers has grown tremendously since its inception in 2014.
The world is God’s gift to us. To enjoy a gift, you need to unwrap it. Mountain Slayers seeks to unwrap this gift through exploring various destinations in Kenya, East Africa and the world at large. There is no better way to see the world than on foot.
Mountain slayers has grown more than 10 times in less than 2 years and that means there is a lot of interest in this sport. The vision for the Mountains slayers is to initially cover all of Kenya and the larger African continent one mountain at a time. Africa is a continent that has amazing beauty from the highlands to the sea shores. Mountain slayers wants to put Africa on the map in terms of hiking destinations- showcasing that there are many more beautiful and challenging peaks to get to beyond Mt. Kenya and Mt. Kilimanjaro. The mountains and peaks that are off the tourist route are very expensive to hike, however the Mountain Slayers intend to be the trailblazers in this beautiful and almost virgin mountains and hills in Africa.
Mountain Slayers- Kenya has one basic tenet; ‘Treasure and nourish relationships’
- Relationship with God
- Relationship with Self
- Relationship with fellow hikers
- Relationships with the environment
- Relationship with community
There is no better way to interact with these areas than being in the great outdoors, enjoying God’s creation, using the quiet time in nature for introspection, using the moments on expeditions to encourage or receive encouragement from fellow slayers, and finally appreciate the healing qualities of the different environments we explore.

Mountain Slayers is a group of fun-loving hikers. I’ve been part of the group for about a year and its been amazing. The whole experience of going to different places with different people from diverse backgrounds for a climb is exciting. I had never imagined climbing a mountain but these awesome people actually made it possible by their encouragement and believing that we could do…so guess what we did it…HRM Mt Kenya was slayed!! I love how well coordinated the hikes are; from timing to difficulty level to what to wear and what to carry. Cheers to the organizer and to anyone who feels or just wants to try a random Saturday activity….come join us and experience for yourself
I have always been an active person – I like the outdoors and believe I am adventurous. At least I was in my youth! I discovered the Mountain Slayers when I turned 40 – a friend mentioned a group they had gone hiking with, in the Ngong Hills and I wondered why she had not invited me. So she invited me to the next hike and …. I was hooked!
I started hiking when my friend Wandia invited me to show up. So after partying the night before, there I was waking up at 4am preparing to go a hike for the sake of my life. I don’t remember the exact number of hikers present but I do remember they were ALL new faces..well save for my “friend” Wandia. Define getting out of comfort zone. We were briefed, by armed wardens, and advised that “in case wild animals attack, we are in safe hands”. And with that, we started the hike.
