The First Edition of the Trek for the Bongo

The inaugural edition of the Trek for the Mountain Bongo was held in 2022. This hiking expedition saw one man’s thrill for adventure and passion for wildlife raise funds to boost the Mountain Bongo breeding and rewilding program. Over the course of three days, he successfully summited Mount Kenya’s Lenana peak three times! All the funds raised were matched by our primary sponsor, Janus Continental Group.

As an experienced mountaineer, I have successfully climbed various mountains across Africa. This time, I wanted to test my limits by attempting a seemingly impossible feat, summitting the Lenana peak thrice in three days. While at it, I also wanted to use the opportunity to promote a cause close to my heart: wildlife conservation. And that's how the Trek for the Bongo came to life.
