ABERDARE

WEDNESDAY, DAY 4 (DEC 21)

ABERDARE NATIONAL PARK

Today, we head north – into the heart of East Africa. This is the big-game country in all its splendor. The day begins early and the drive is spectacular. First stop: Aberdare on the Eastern wall of the Great Rift Valley where majestic Mt. Kenya dominates the land-scape. After lunch at the Aberdare Country Club continue to The Ark – a modern viewing wonder perched atop a natural spur a mile and a half up. All around you see lush mountain forests and watering holes where elephant, buffalo, rhino and giant forest hogs come to sample the salt lake. Warm clothing is advisable as nights tend to be chilly, but only an overnight bag is required – rest of your luggage is stored at the Aberdare Country Club.

THURSDAY, DAY 5 (DEC 22)

ABERDARE – MT. KENYA

Return to the Country Club for your luggage and proceed immediately to the Mt.Kenya region. Deep in Kikuyu country, miles from civilization, is a magnificent resort built on the slopes of Mt. Kenya.
