The mountain slopes can be divided into vegetation zones, with each zone having different dominant plant species. Although many plants on Mount Kenya have local (Kikuyu, Meru, Embu) names, here they are reported only with their English and scientific names.

Mount Kenya is located in the former Eastern and Central provinces of Kenya, now Meru, Embu, Laikipia, Kirinyaga, Nyeri and Tharaka Nithi counties, about kilometres ( mi) south of the equator, around kilometres (93 mi) north-northeast of the capital Nairobi.

The climate of Mount Kenya has played a critical role in the development of the mountain, influencing the topography and ecology amongst other factors. It has a typical equatorial mountain climate which Hedberg described as winter every night and summer every day.. The year is divided into two distinct wet seasons and two distinct dry seasons which mirror the wet and dry seasons in the Kenyan. Mount Kenya: : Climbing, hiking, mountaineering. Mount Kenya is the second highest peak in Africa and stands somewhat unjustly in the shadow of it's taller neighbour Kilimanjaro, which lies some km away in the south and is visible on a clear day%(85).

leadership of Dr. Malcolm J. Coe, undertook a research expedition to the alpine zone of Mount Kenya. The main purpose of the expedition was to study the ecology of the relatively dry northern slopes of Mount Kenya which, from a biological standpoint, were virtually unknown. The Base Camp was erected at 12, ft. (3, m.) in the Kazita West. Mount Kenya's climbing seasons are unique as a result of its location only 10 miles from the equator. During the northern summer the rock routes on the north side of the peak are in good summer condition, while at the same time the ice routes on the south side of the peak are prime shape.
