This will go along way in increasing and encouraging local tourism thus helping the sector thrive again.

Additionally, It is important to note that this will go a long way in reducing the total cost of the safari with a big margin mind Kenya park entry fees almost take 20-50% of the price of accommodation depending on the choice of property one is staying at.
Aberdare National park
The foothill of the Aberdare National Park is covered with huge trees, which, the higher you go; gradually give way to Bamboo forests. From about 3,000 meters upwards the landscape consists primarily of alpine moorland. Still higher is an area of grassland with, from time to time, giant lobelias presenting an attractive contrast.
Similarly, the rich vegetation of this park is blessed with crystal clear streams, waterfalls, and lakes teeming with fish. Thus an ideal habitat for a wide variety of mammals and birds, although the wildlife here is still very shy, and the lodges often have to put out salt licks to attract the animals. With a bit of luck, it is possible to see the “BIG FIVE” whereas it may be somewhat more difficult to sight the local black varieties of Leopards and Servals.
Aberdare National Park covers an area of approximately 765.7 Sq. Kms and is the highest game park in the world and boasts of having two very spectacular waterfalls; Karura, dropping 894 ft in three stages. Especially near the water, there is fantastic growth of moss and giant vegetation peculiar to the East African Mountains.
Groundsel and Lobelias, small plants in Europe, reach 15 ft high here. In good weather, the park road leads to superb views of the Rift Valley as it descends on the other side of the Aberdares to the Kinangop Plateau and Naivasha. However, Aberdare National Park is 17 Kms from Nyeri town which is about 2hrs drive from Nairobi. Read more
