Nelion Adventures Safaris

Welcome to Nelion Adventures! Nelion is the Second Highest Peak of Mt. Kenya and received its name from a Masai chief who supported and facilitated the first explorers to lead expeditions up on the mountain. We chose Nelion as our name, because we want to lead you to a ‘Peak Experience’.

The Team

Samuel Wachira Mumbi

I am a Kenyan man in my 30’s; I am a Pharmacist by profession with about 10 years in practice. I picked up interests in Wildlife and Tourism almost as soon as I started my career in Pharmacy after a friend invited me to the position of a Projects’ Coordinator in a Conservation Program in partnership with Kenya Wildlife Services. I worked with various projects including ‘The Cheetah Project’ and ‘The Rhino Project’ amongst other projects. This gave me an invaluable experience and expertise in Wildlife, Conservation and Tourism. I juggled this with my career in Pharmacy. At the completion of the projects with Kenya Wildlife Services, I continue to run voluntary conservation programs to date. I would describe myself as an avid conservationist. I am very passionate in conserving our environment and our wild animals; Africa’s greatest heritage. I love spending time outdoors in the natural wild world.

It was not long after when I teamed up with friends who are as passionate as I am to build an exceptional Tours, Travels and Safaris company that shares the most; authentic, beautiful and exotic experiences of Africa with you. Now with about 9 years in tourism alone, I bring in a wealth of knowledge and experience. Having taken various groups on Safaris or to climb the mountains, I know some of the most exquisite treasures that this region can offer. We offer not just a Safari, but an Adventure with the Safari.

David Njuguna Gathoni

My name is David Njuguna. I was born and brought up in a village in Central Kenya; East Africa, on the slopes of Mt. Kenya.

My village was mainly comprised of peasant farmers who did subsistence farming. In early 1999 I joined Kenya Guides & Porters Club in Narumoro, at the base of Mt. Kenya where I started working as a porter. After an year, I was promoted  to the position of a Trainee Guide. Here I took an Outward Bound Course.

In 2002, I became a Fully Certified Guide after doing Outdoor Leadership Course organized by the National  Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS).

I began practicing privately as a professional licenced guide since then and I now have eleven years exploring, climbing, and trekking throughout in East Africa.

All the Guides, Porters and Chefs I work with, are fully vetted, qualified and certified by the National Parks Authorities and Licensing and Operating Authorities. I enjoy an excellent relationship with my teams; built up over many years working together. We adhere strictly to the codes of good conduct set out by the National Parks Authorities and Licensing & Operating Bodies. Most of them can speak English.

The people, the diverse cultures, the warm weather, the beautiful terrain, the hospitality and nature; it’s all breathtaking and incredibly beautiful.
