Cedar Retreat is the only lodge in the northern Aberdare National Park, blending perfectly in the forest - and the moorlands beyond. A beautiful Swiss Log Cabin, it’s a secret world of undisturbed wildlife and adventure.

Friday 4 March: 6 a.m. - Leave Nairobi in a safari cruiser, to arrive for a hearty buffet lunch. Enjoy the alpine air as you unwind on the large wooden game viewing deck overlooking the Cedar Forest watching wildlife like elephants wandering to the waterhole. Or enjoy mountain biking on the grounds or birding with the naturalist.

Saturday 5 March: After a hearty English breakfast, we’ll hike to the Twin Peaks and Dragons Teeth on the lower slopes of Ol Donyo Le Satima the highest peak on the Aberdare range at Protected content , with a picnic. We’ll return for afternoon tea, relax and enjoy sundowners before dinner. You can stay up as long as you wish on the deck to watch the nocturnal wildlife step out of the forest.

You can fly fish, tag and release on Pesi River as well.

Sunday 6 March: Hike to Ol Donyo Le Satima or enjoy game drives on the Northern Aberdares to the moorlands looking for the leopard and rare creatures like the bongo with its ivory-tipped horns.

Monday 7 March: 10 am - Leave for Nairobi after breakfast arriving late afternoon.

The safari is for you to rejuvenate yourself in mountain freshness, and discover the art of forest bathing. You can hike on one or both days, or simply enjoy the game drives.
