I love being out door most of my weekends as much as i can. A few months ago, i went on a hiking and mountain climbing the second largest mountain in Africa, Mt.Kenya. The experience was thrilling, great, tiresome and even life threatening. Covered 82 kms and went from 1700 altitude to 4950 altitude high in 5 days. Temperatures ranging from -2 degrees - 5 degrees. sometime a bit sunny for a few hours
High altitude sickness almost cost me, lack of oxygen is real and the experience is one of a life time. Mt Kenya area is covered forest, bare land , large rocks and home to Elephants, Buffaloes, antelopes and many more animals.
I would stay in a cabin in a middle of a forest anytime :)
