4 NIGHTS ABERDARES, SOLIO RANCH AND AMBOSELI

amboseli national park

 

DAY 1: ABERDARE NATIONAL PARK – MT. KENYA REGION

We shall enjoy game drives in the amazing Aberdare National Park. 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:- “The Majestic Moorland”.

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 2: SOLIO RANCH AND GAME RESERVE – RHINOS, RHINOS AND MORE RHINOS

Solio Ranch and Game Reserve will be our next safari destination; located within the vast Laikipia region. Solio Ranch (45,000 acres) is an amazing savannah nestled between Mt. Kenya and Aberdare Ranges; and both mountains are clearly visible from Solio on clear days. This ranch hosts a combination of both savannah woodlands and savannah grasslands, forming a scenic mosaic of wildlife habitats. The riverine vegetation meandering through the plains provides a great habitat for mammals to rest off and refresh in the cool Laikipia waters.

Solio Game Reserve, set up in 1970, is an amazing 19,000 acres allocated for the protection of rhinos. Both Black Rhinos and White Rhinos interact harmoniously in this great place. Solio ranch has the largest population of White Rhinos in the entire World. The rhinos bred here are often translocated into other conservation areas across the African continent. Other mammals here include African Lion, Spotted Hyena, Common Impala, Leopard, Cheetah and Cape Buffalo.

Highlight birds here include African Crowned Eagle, Grey Crowned Crane, White-bellied Bustard and Long-tailed Widowbird.

Night at Aberdares.

DAY 3 AND 4: AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK – MT. KILIMANJARO

We shall then drive to Amboseli National Park, where a great safari adventure awaits. This amazing place is regarded as one of Kenya’s Premium Parks, and is located at the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The park is graced by mighty Savannah Elephants, and hosts the longest and most famous elephant research program in the entire World.

The mammals of Amboseli National Park are great indeed (including Lions, Blue Wildebeest and Maasai Giraffe); and we shall take time to enjoy them. The local birds are great and we shall be hoping to enjoy many species.
