Aberdares Forest at Night

Aberdares forest is a hidden world of wildlife. The thick vegetation provides perfect cover for countless species. Very large herds of elephant and buffalo move almost silently through the undergrowth, while overhead noisome birds and colobus monkeys dominate the canopy.

At night the forest comes alive, the cries of hyrax and the distinctive rasping growl of leopard echoing among the trees. A night in the Aberdares is unforgettable. Elephant herds surround the waterholes, drink and then fade way into the forest. Buffalo bulls fight over territory in spectacular battles. Occasionally a rhino or the elusive Bongo antelope appear and visit the waterhole.
