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.
