Kenya National Park, 2,650mtrs above see level after sorting out start walking through the forest part of the trail follows a good track through dense forests alive with bird song and the sounds of noisy Columbus monkeys. Elephants also inhabit these parts, but they are rare these days and we will be lucky to see one emerging on the edge of the forest where it joins the moor land zone, and reach Old Moses camp at 3,300 mtrs above see level Altitude gained 650 meter walking distance 9kms, time 3 hours.
