DAY 4: ABERDARE NATIONAL PARK – MT. KENYA REGION

We shall continue our Kenya Highlights Wildlife Safari to the Mt. Kenya region. We shall enjoy safari drives in the amazing Aberdare National Park- with views of Mt. Kenya. This Park runs the expanse of a majestic mountain range on the Eastern edge of the Rift Valley. The park has a great stretch of alpine moorland vegetation, mainly above 3,000m. This great landscape has led to the park’s nick-name:- “Majestic Peaks, Moorlands and Intriguing Falls”.

There is a thick tropical forest, with deep ravines and dissecting riverine gorges. At certain areas, these rivers form majestic waterfalls, which leave a sight to be desired. Many animals occupy this beautiful place and species of mammals such as African Elephant, Cape Buffalo, Bush Duiker, Common Bushbuck and Giant Forest Hog can be expected.

Night at Aberdares.

DAY 5: LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK – THE GREAT RIFT VALLEY

We shall continue our Kenya Highlights Wildlife Safari to the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park. The park is known for the mighty Lake Nakuru, a soda lake at the heart of the Great Rift Valley. This park is also a great sanctuary for rhinos and these may be encountered on our game drives.

The local birds make the park special too, and it is often referred as the birdwatcher’s paradise. Enjoy the large herds of herbivores, especially the local Cape Buffaloes. Thompson’s Gazelles, Grant’s Gazelles, Rothschild’s Giraffes, Common Impalas, Common Zebras; among many other spectacular wildlife species. The landscapes here are very rewarding as well.
