A different sort of safari as surrounded by forest, but do see some wildlife, and trip into mountains is amazing. Beautiful waterfalls of various sizes, amazing.

A different sort of safari as most of park wooded, but a trip through rainforest and up into the Aberare mountains and its spectacular waterfalls is very worthwhile. A variety of wildlife and birds to see. The Scottish highlands but higher up.

The top of the Aberdares is truly amazing. One can forget one is in Africa, what with the cool trout stream and Scottish highland vistas.
