Kenya Wildlife New Frontiers
Start this exciting expedition in the Aberdares, a scenic mountain range at the feet of Mount Kenya. In about two and a half hours from Nairobi city, you will be at The Ark inside the Aberdare National Park, an iconic facility to behold.
The Ark overlooks a floodlit waterhole and salt lick, which attracts a host of wildlife both in the daytime and at night for viewing through the balconies. Hot on the heels of The Ark comes the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, a private game sanctuary situated in the Laikipia Plains near Mount Kenya.
Boasting of an incredible density of wildlife per square KM within its borders, the conservancy is also home to a host of endangered species, and is especially known for its large populations of black and endangered northern white rhinos and a haven for orphaned, abandoned and rescued chimpanzees seen at the Chimpanzee Sanctuary set within the park.
After the Olpejeta affair, we set off to Meru National Park, the epitome of our expedition. This is a haven for great wildlife and has been less travelled since it was gazetted in 1966, the animal population has thrived to greater levels and now spotting the big 5 is a quick affair, yet the abundance of birdlife with over 470 species makes this park rich in all game life pursuits, even for the ardent photographers.
