Welcome to Aberdares


But there's more to this soulful range of mountains than its geography, and the Aberdares still evoke strong feelings. In colonial times, this was a bastion of white settlement – the area was often referred to as the White Highlands – and later the Aberdares became a popular base for Mau Mau fighters during the independence struggle.

East Africa Lodge Safari

Whether you travel in style or by the seat of your pants, the sprawling grasslands of Kenya and Tanzania are a sight to behold. This trip stresses the former while capturing the spirit of the latter, transferring you swiftly between national parks and cushy lodges while still giving you the chance to get out and truly feel the majestic lands you’re travelling across. In a small safari 4x4 with two expert local guides, you’ll descend into the Great Rift Valley, spot elephants in the distance in Amboseli National Park, track the Big Five across the Serengeti and Masai Mara plains and more. Your photos have never looked this good.
