The Happy Valley Tour
This will be a very exciting trip of the Happy Valley circuit. We shall camp for one night at El Paradiso. It is a lovely camp with an excellent shower and toilet unit and a nice restaurant. The owner is a gourmet cook.
The trip will begin at Kiambu church where Lord Errol is buried. On arrival at camp we shall set up our tents, followed by an early picnic lunch. Then we shall visit 5 houses, including Clouds. In the evening there will be a 40 minute talk and discussion on the Happy Valley residents and the enigma of who killed Lord Errol. On Sunday there will be a hike up to the Aberdare fence. Return to camp for lunch.
You can take your own tent or El Paradiso can provide camping equipment.
