4 Days Aberdare Foot Walk Profile


The Aberdares (Nyandarua) overlooks the Great Rift Valley and lies on its eastern edge. There are two main peaks, Lesatima to the north and Kinangop to the south. Various species of wildlife inhabit these mountain ranges such as elephant, buffalo, great bush buck and other antelopes, hiding in the heavily forested slopes and in the upper moorlands.

Walking is always cool with plenty of clear mountain streams. Our walk starts below the bamboo forest, climbing up onto the moorlands. There is always danger walking through the African bush but we do not expect many close encounters with large game. However, our trained and armed game ranger knows the area and the habits of the game.

Day 1:- Nairobi/Aberdares(Mweiga)

Departing Nairobi in the morning, we drive north to the Aberdares National Park to Mweiga park gate to meet our guide and then proceed up into the forested eastern slopes of the Aberdares ranges where we make camp.

Day 2 & 3:- Walking

We start our guided foot walk. Carry only what you need for the day's walk, the vehicle will meet us in the moorlands where camp will be made. A short game drive, if weather permits.

Day 4:- Nairobi

We depart the moorland camp (10,000ft) and descend by vehicle looking for game on the way. We drop off the guide and head back to Nairobi arriving before late afternoon.

Note: Clients should arrange to have good weatherproof clothing and a warm sleeping bag, a water bottle and good walking shoes plus a pair of shoes to wear in camp.
