4 DAYS 3 NIGHTS THOMSON FALLS ABERDARE NATIONAL PARK TRIP

4 Days 3 Nights Thomson Falls Aberdare National Park Trip from the 4 Days Kenya Safaris is a holiday that combines a visit to Nyahururu Thomson Falls, Nyahururu town and a night at the Ark Tree Lodge in the Aberdare National Park for high altitude game viewing.

Our4 Days 3 Nights Thomson Falls Aberdare National Park Trip from Nairobi takes you to Nayhururu Thompson Falls. Nyahururu is a town in Kenya, lying east of Nakuru.

Nyahururu Town lies at high altitude (2360 meters) with a splendid climate and is Kenya’s highest town. There is a market well worth a browse especially on Saturdays.

An explorer, Joseph Thomson, came across the waterfall to the north of the town in 1883 which he named Thomson’s Falls after his father. He was the first European to walk from Mombasa to Lake Victoria.

The cascade plunges 75 meters, and is a pretty area to walk around. A stony path of sorts leads down to the bottom of the ravine.

Do not attempt to go down any other way as the rocks on the side of the ravine are very loose.

It’s more commonly known as ‘T-falls’. Upstream on the Ewaso Narok River is found one of Kenya’s highest altitude hippo pools in an area of marshy bog land, about 2 km from the falls.

We also visit the Aberdare National Park, famous for high perches and balconies, overlooking a salt lick and waterhole. Here we will enjoy the finest in high-altitude game viewing.

Animals easily observed in the Aberdare National Park include; Rhino, leopard, baboon, Colobus monkey, Sykes monkey, lions, the golden cat and the bongo antelope that lives in the bamboo forest.

Bird viewing is rewarding, with over 250 species of birds in the park, including the Jackson’s Francolin, sparry hawk, goshawks, eagles, sun birds and plovers.
