Dense rainforest and Alpine moorlands

The counterpoint to the vast congregations of wildlife in southern Kenya, Aberdare National Park is where the landscape of dense rainforest and Alpine moorlands seems to triumph over its wild inhabitants.

That is, of course, until an elephant crashes out of the undergrowth just metres from your vehicle, and you spy bongo antelopes and black leopards lurking in the forest shadows.

The wildlife is here in abundance, but you just have to look a little harder - which allows you to capture the true questing spirit of the safari.
