    One of the main reasons for visiting Aberdare National Park, is of course the chance to see wild animals.

    This is a picture of a herd of buffalo which we saw at Treetops, coming to the waterhole to drink.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the grounds of Outspan Hotel, is a mock-up of a Kikuyu village for tourists. Although it is a little tousisty, it is actually very well done, and quite interesting.

    The building on the left would be where the husband sleeps, the one on the right is for the wife, goats and childern!

    Fortune teller

    For a small charge you could have your fortune told by the witch doctor. He spoke no English, so a guide would come along and translate. I was told that I was going to have a long life, slightly troubled at times, but I would get what I wanted in the end.

    Jacaranda trees

    I was totally captivated by the beautifully blue-flowering Jacaranda trees. This was the first time I had seen anything like it, and I loved the way the fallen petals colourd the entire ground blue. Standing under the tree in the slight breeze was like standing in a blue snow fall. Magical!

    If you stop at the Outspan Hotel, take a little bit of time to walk around the gardens, as there are many beautiful flowers all around. This particular hibiscus was part of the hedge!
