Mount Kenya National Park

Mount Kenya National Park, established in 1949, protects the region surrounding Mt Kenya. Initially it was a forest reserve before being announced as6 a national park. Currently the national park is within the forest reserve which encircles it. In April 1978 the area was designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The national park and the forest reserve, combined, became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.  

The Government of Kenya had four reasons for creating a national park on and around Mount Kenya. These were the importance of tourism for the local and national economies, to preserve an area of great scenic beauty, to conserve the biodiversity within the park, and to preserve the water catchment for the surrounding area.  

The national park has an area of 715 square kilometers, (276 sq mi), most of which is above 3000 metres (9,800 ft)contour line.The forest reserve has an area of 705 square kilometers (272 sq mi). Combined this6 makes the area of the UNESCO World Heritage Site 1,420 square kilometers (548 sq mi).  

A small portion of this park's borders near heavy populations have electrified fences to keep the elephants out of the surrounding farmland. Volcanic sediment in the surrounding region's soil and the huge volume of fresh water coming down the slopes makes the area particularly favorable for agriculture. 

At lower altitudes Colobus and other monkeys and Cape Buffalo are prevalent.

The Sweetwaters Chimpanzee sanctuary.

Within Ole Pejeta is the member of the Pan Africa Sanctuary Alliance whose 18 member sanctuaries care for over 800 orphaned or confiscated chimpanzees in 12 African Countries. The Jane Goodall institute and the Kenyan Wild life Services joined forces to establish the Kenyan Sanctuary in 1993 at sweetwaters as a refugee for orphaned chimps evacuated from a facility in Burundi due to the outbreak of civil war there and is the only place in Kenya where non-indigenous chimpanzees can be seen.

The chimpanzees inhabit an island divided into two by a river. The older chimps occupy one half, the younger chimps the other. Acces to see the chimpanzees is by boat. Sweetwaters sanctuary's aim is to provide a permanent refuge for the chimps in as natural an environment as is possible . The 40 or so chimpanzees are looked after by a dedicated fully –qualified staff or 16 who are on duty around the clock. Unfortunately, the continuing decimation of the West Africa rain forests and the demand for bush-meat means that the need for the sanctuary remains undiminished and it continues to take in and give a home to abused and orphaned chimps. The sanctuary offers 'adoption packages' to visitors as a means to raise money to pay for the necessary 24hrs care of the animals.Relax till 1600hrs and begin a game drive with visiting the Rhino orphanage Center and Chimps Sanctuary.proceed with your game watch up to sundown.Dinner/Overnight (SWEETWATERS SERENA TENTED CAMP)
