Asilia Adventures Active Southern Kenya Longonot, Hell's Gate And The Aberdares

Active Southern Kenya

Taking in some of the lesser known national parks and landscapes of southern Kenya, this adventure makes the journey from A to B more action-packed and interesting than simply hopping on a flight to your safari destination. Instead, you will zipline through a forest, hike to the top of the Mount Longonot volcanic crater, mountain bike through the canyons of Hell’s Gate National Park and spend a day exploring the forests, waterfalls and escarpment of the Aberdare National Park. You’ll finish at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy where you can extend your stay with time on safari learning about their world-class rhino conservation efforts.
