3 Days Aberdare Climb/Camping – Le Satima

Day 1: Nairobi / Aberdare / Reedbuck camp
Depart early for Aberdares National Park through Treetop gate, for game viewing on the salient. Here wildlife is abundant with better visibility. The park is rich with alpine flora and fauna. Scenic features that include magnificent waterfalls among others en route to Kiondogoro where we spent the night at Reedbuck campsite.
Day 2: Reedbuck / Honi river camp.
Drive up to Karuru-Mutubio junction to start 4-5 hours hike on the moorland. The vehicle carrying our camping gear will drive Honi river camp. The track is dotted with giant heather, tussock grass, open forest glades and rosewood. Arrive at river Honi campsite for overnight in tents. The hike offers opportunities to encounter with buffaloes, elephant, reed/bush/waterbuck, and many antelopes – armed with a ranger we expect no problems with animals. Picnic lunch is served en route.
Day 3: Honi / Le Satima Peak (4001M) / Nairobi
Have breakfast and drive on a steep old track through the forest for 2 hours up the Chebuswa peak to the roadhead to embark on 2-3 hour trek to Le Satima peak (4001m). On a clear day, there are opportunities to observe Mt. Kenya and Mt. Kilimanjaro on the horizon and even the surrounding vicinity of Lake Naivasha Lake Nakuru. Later descend to connect with our vehicle for the return journey to Nairobi. Picnic lunch is served en route.
 {NB: This is a strictly 4X4 trail}

Options are of course many and varied and in many cases, we can be flexible about the itinerary for accommodation facilities and the extension of the safari destinations.
