  1. Climbing Mount Kenya is very accessible and therein lies the problem. With a decent level of it is easy to gain altitude quickly and find yourself the on the night before summiting with a throbbing headache and all the symptoms of acute mountain sickness. Trekking with a well-experienced guide, taking a sensible easy pace and keeping hydrated makes all the difference. The best approach is always to allow extra time for your ascent, an extra day at Shipton’s Camp takes all the pressure of the itinerary and gives you time to enjoy the fabulous trekking around the peak. it isn't necessary to undergo a grueling fitness regime prior to attempting Mount Kenya, anyone who is trek fit and is comfortable walking 6-8 hour days should be fine. The trekking crew will usually consist of a guide, cook, porter for the cooking gear plus a personal porter per trekker. It has been said before, but a well-experienced guide is so important on Mount Kenya, for two reasons; (1) they will regulate your pace, be able to draw on their experience to diagnose altitude sickness symptoms and have the confidence to make critical decisions and (2) their knowledge of the wildlife and fauna on the mountain will bring the environment alive. All guides and porters must be registered with Kenya Wildlife Services and hold a mountain guide park from Mt Kenya National Park. It is fair to say that all the guides will have a good knowledge of the routes, but only the good guides will have wildlife knowledge and experience of dealing with altitude sickness problems.

  2. When there was a previous burn, (and during the decade of running Safaritalk there have been a few), I said, This would show real some commitment between the country's political figures... Are the destination countries willing to work in such a manner with Kenya's govt? and If it needs to be a case of shaming those countries which are driving the trade, then is it being done? Are countries such as China now so entrenched and invested in Africa that no elephant range state country would dare to embarrass and humiliate them in such a fashion through fear of political repercussions? I followed the burn this afternoon via Twitter, (#‎worthmorealive), and I didn't see a tweet in Mandarin, (or other Chinese language), Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, (admittedly I didn't see every single tweet), and whilst I appreciate that a majority of social media sites are blocked in China, what about engaging with an expat Chinese community, whose second, third generations etc., are more engaged and involved in wildlife conservation issues? (And I've had a little experience in the past engaging with such an audience, having been helped translating messages and comments into Chinese.) The cost of having someone on scene, translating some of the tweets into at least one of these languages, for the twitter campaign ‪#‎worthmorealive‬ could have been met by any one of the attending NGOs. To be honest, I expected to see such engagement and was disappointed not to. I did see a tweet from People's Daily, China, which read QUOTE "‪#‎Africa‬ declares anti-poaching war ahead of historic burning of 105 tons of ivory in ‪#‎Kenya‬" How many more representatives were there from the Asian press corp reporting live, being part of the #worthmorealive twitter campaign? And I wanted to echo the sentiments of a few of the posters on social media who have recognised the commitment of those rangers on the ground who are doing such a great job, at times, putting their lives on the line. Who do care. Who do fight for wildlife. I appreciate your efforts, though I will never know your names. You will never have your photos posted on social media with the celebs and NGOs, but you deserve as much, if not more recognition than they do. Thank you. Matt
