The Aberdare National Park is part of the Aberdare Mountain Range, a fascinating region of Kenya. Take guided walks and spent some time with interesting tribal people while on your camping in Kenya.
Mountain ranges and peaks soar to around 14,000 ft. giving way to deep
V-shaped valleys with streams and rivers overflowing over gushing waterfalls
- this area is a must for landscape lovers. At 10,000 ft. the bamboo gives
way to meadow, home to the eland, spotted and melanistic serval cats. Other
features are the giant varieties of lobelia, groundsel and heather. Ideal
for walking, picnics, trout fishing and camping.
The campsites are provided in incredible settings, cautiously chosen to be
as private and wild as possible. The sleeping tents have a spacious insect
proof inner, with full sized (6ft 9inch long) comfortable beds - a double
bed if you like - with bedside table and hanging space. Continental quilts
are provided as standard, but we can supply sheets and blankets if you
prefer. Each tent has its own private veranda with chairs so that you can
choose to read or write in privacy. You will find your own private toilet
and shower tents just behind your sleeping tent, hot water for showering or
for wash basins is available at any time.
Camping allows you to get close to the sounds, smells and sights of Africa.
Lodges and home stays allow you to relax in more familiar surroundings.
