Nairobi – Aberdare National Park
Meet and greet at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport after brief introduction, depart for Aberdares, a beautiful mountain range in the central highlands which is situated 100km north of Nairobi. Arrive and check in for lunch to the Aberdare Country Club. Later transfer to The Ark, a tree lodge, located in the forest on mountain slopes of the Aberdare Mountains at 7,000 feet. This outstanding lodge offers high altitude game viewing, including animals that are rarely encountered elsewhere which includes giant forest hog, bush pig, tree hyrax, large spotted genet, and the elusive bongo antelope.
Wildlife can be observed from different levels and from outside where one can see, hear and smell everything and inside where one can sit with a cup of tea and stay warm and cozy. One can request to be awakened during the night if your favorite animals show up. A herd of Elephants might be just feet away and if you are lucky, a leopard or large male lion might put in an appearance. Have your dinner and overnight stay at your lodg
