We Set out to Make a Change on top of Kenya's highest Mountain, Mt. Kenya

Once in a while get out of your comfort zone and make an ordinary day extraordinary with adrenaline-filled activities that include road trips, mountain climbing, sky running, etc, you can only do it with Buckelist Adventures, that is why we call ourselves an active playground. 

Bucketlist Adventures creates experiences focused on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our activities are geared towards promoting Community health and well-being and health as per SDG number 3. The activities are also oriented towards SDG Goal number 13 on Climate action by working towards the protection of critical water towers and mountain ecosystems.

Standing just over 17,000 (5,199m) feet above sea level, Mount Kenya is the second tallest mountain in Africa after Mount Kilimanjaro. Today, Mt Kenya has been deemed a UNESCO World Heritage site for its beautiful glaciers, world-class flora and fauna, and breathtaking views. With the growth of hiking as a sport in the country, there is a growing need to work on the existing and newly scouted trails to improve the visitor experience in the parks hence the introduction of triple support that will see hikers take up the challenge as a fundraising concept with Buckelist as the implementor and custodian. This will be a yearly activity that will see different hikers come on board and play a key role in taking care of Mt Kenya and its environs. 

Munyaka Njiru our company founder together with his group of friends dubbed Mauano hiking group came up with an idea aimed at raising awareness about this cause. With the string team including Nicholas Murimi, Margie Gathungu, Benson Wa Njeri, James Rimui, Robert Marugu, Onesmus Mutiga, Timothy Muriithi, and Chelagat Kigen they embarked on this challenge whose main agenda was to raise funds to build pit latrines for Mt Kenya hiking trails. The Triple summit challenge saw the group embark on a 7-day trip climbing and summiting Mt Kenya, Mt Meru, and Mt Kilimanjaro which was a huge success having been done by the 4th day.

After months of preparation, the team embarked on attempting the 3 summits within 7 days which was a success, and 100% summit in all the 3 Mountains within 4 days. The team has so far raised Kshs 400,000 and we are appealing to the general public that including hikers and friends of hikers to support this cause which is going to change the face of Mt. Kenya permanently.
