Elephant En Route to AberdaresDay 1: Nairobi - Aberdares (The Ark)
You will be received by our tour manager at 8:00am in Nairobi who will then hand you over to your tour guide for your trip to the Aberdares National Park. Depart for Aberdares. You will arrive at the Aberdares country club in time for late lunch before you transfer to the Ark.

The foothills of the Aberdares National Park are covered with huge trees which the higher you go, gradually give way to bamboo forests. From about 3000 meters upwards the landscape consists primary of Alpine moor land, still higher is an area of grassland with form to time giant lobelias presenting and attractive contrast. The rich vegetation of this park is blessed with crystal clear streams, waterfalls and lakes teeming with fish. This means an ideal habitat for a wide variety of mammal and birds although the wild life here is still very shy and the lodges often have to put out salt - licks to attract the animals. With a bit of luck it is possible to see the "big five" whereas it may be some what more difficult to sight the local black varieties of leopards and servals.

Lunch at Aberdares Country Club, Dinner and Overnight at The Ark.
