NATIONAL PARK, KENYA
Running south to north
for 60 km through the Central Highlands area are the magnificent Aberdare
mountains, nearly 800 sq km of which have been set
aside as the Aberdare
National Park. The volcanic heights are part of the
Great Rift Valley's eastern rampart, and their lower slopes support a fine
diversity of wildlife, including elephants and a number of rare animals
such as the shy and lovely bongo antelope.
Among the best African
safari viewing spots at Aberdare National Park is at The Ark
and Treetops, an imaginatively designed
beside a well-patronized water hole. The best time
for viewing wildlife at Aberdare
Park is during the first light but an even
better way to spending the night is overnight at the famous The Ark or Treetops
Hotel. The Ark
has a higher concentration of predators, and is more comfortable
than Treetops. After nightfall, there is usually more activity at
the saltlicks when the outdoor lights are discreetly turned on. You can
even experience live
predator kills around the lodge.
Wildlife is abundant at the Aberdares.
Alongside the road are many places where elephants have dug into the soil
with their trunks in search of salt. Buffalos, baboons and impalas are the
commonly found. Leopards could be found near the
Wanderis Gate. Four species of sunbird and over two hundred other species
National Park. Whether you can identify each bird or not, you will
appreciate their call, color and activity which are all diverse and unique.
