Day 1: Nairobi

Day 2: Mountain Lodge

After a hearty butter breakfast we leave Nairobi and drive North through the agricultural Kikuyu countryside to arrive at Mountain Lodge in time for lunch. Mountain Lodge is one of the three game outlook lodges in the Mt. Kenya region. The lodge is built overlooking a waterhole which animals frequent to have a drink and lick salt. Each room is built with a balcony overlooking the waterhole, thus enabling you to see the animals from the comfort of your room. After lunch the rest of the afternoon is spent viewing the animals at the water hole. In the evenings the water hole is floodlit, giving you an opportunity of seeing some of the nocturnal animals. Apart from viewing frequent animals, you might sight the elusive Bongo antelope or even the Golden Cat. Bird viewing is also rewarding, with over 250 species recorded here including Jackson 's Francolin, the sparrow hawk, Africa Goshawk, eagles, sunbirds and plovers. Dinner and overnight at the SERENA MOUNTAIN LODGE.

Today after breakfast we will continue with our journey north, passing through the western slopes of Mt. Kenya, across the Equator to the Sweetwaters game sanctuary.
