Kenya Garden of Eden

Filed under: Introduction — parto @ 2:20 am

The Aberdares are the original Garden of Eden. A mist wreathed realm were elephants roam through lichen – clad forests, spectacular waterfalls plunge into churning pool and trout – filled streams cascade through mossy dells, this beautiful national park is one of the gems of the Kenya’s Great Rift Valley.

When the mist clears, the Aberdares offers matchless view of Mount Kenya’s glittering coronet, while the dense forest is home to the elusive and endangered bongo antelope. Black leopards can also be found here, and there have been reports of an exceptionally rare golden cat.

Nesting deep in the forest of Aberdares National Park, Treetops – the original tree lodge rises straight out of the ground on stilts and has four decks and a rooftop platform perfect for viewing the rhinos, elephants and other wildlife.

Treetop is located near the path of an ancient elephant migratory route between the Aberdares Mountain and Mt. Kenya , Treetops almost guarantees riveting wildlife viewing. As well as watching the dramas unfold at the waterhole from the safety of the viewing decks and rooftop platform, guets can also enjoy close – up views fronm two photographic hides at ground level.
