4 Day Aberdare and Samburu Adventure Trip

The safari departs Nairobi by road to the central highlands of Kenya for overnight game viewing at a tree hotel within the Aberdare. Animals abound in the Aberdare National Park includes Elephant, Buffalo, Giant forest hog and Kenya’s indigenous endangered Black Rhino. Set in the heart of the Aberdare National Park, The Ark is a unique tree lodge with a veranda that overlooks a floodlit waterhole and salt.

Day 1: Nairobi – Aberdare National Park

Depart Nairobi after breakfast. Our destination today is the Aberdare National Park. We travel overland through plantations of coffee and tea to The Aberdare Country Club, nestled on the slopes of Mweiga Hill. After lunch, set off for the Ark 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: 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 you can see, hear and smell everything and inside where you can sit with a cup of tea and stay warm and cozy. You can put in a 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.

Day 2: Aberdare National Park – Samburu National Reserve
