Five days Kenya safari from Nairobi to the Aberdares, Lake Naivasha national park and Maasai Mara national reserve. At the Aberdares, game viewing into the late night is from the balconies of your tree hotel.
Day by Day Itinerary
Leave Nairobi in the morning to reach the small town of Nyeri for a sumptuous lunch before leaving for the Ark in the early afternoon. Enjoy the experience of staying in a Tree Hotel or lodge overlooking floodlit waterholes where wildlife visits regularly.
Over 40 species of wildlife inhabit the Aberdare mountain ranges, hiding in the heavily forested slopes and in the upper moor lands. The Aberdares is noted as a rhino sanctuary but keep an eye out for the elusive rare bongo, which is best, spotted in the upper bamboo zone and hypericum scrub. As dusk ensues, we enjoy a relaxing sun downer whilst viewing the game as they gradually approach the waterhole – a truly magical experience. A hearty dinner and pleasant sleep follows thereafter.
The night is spent at Treetops, Ark or Mountain Lodge in your comfortable perch above the floodlit waterhole and saltlick where, nightlong, a procession of animals comes to drink.
Expect to see Elephants, Buffalo & the Hyena.
All meals included.
