The world famous game-viewing lodges Treetops and The Ark are both found in forests on the east side of the range. Though very expensive they are well worth a visit. Camping is permitted at Park Gates and at recognised campsites, it is best to obtain permission to camp elsewhere. Two huts provide very simple shelters; one is on the approach to Satima from the south, the other just below The Elephant. A pleasant, simple forestry rest house with campsite beside it provides a good base for the walk up to Kinangop, Under an overhang below the Western Twin there is a cave shelter (3400m). This provides a fine base for the ascent of Satima.
Traverse of the watershed. 3 to 4 days should be allowed for this major walk. Animal trails can be found most of the way, generally following the main watershed ridge. In bad weather this would be a very serious undertaking on account of the cold and possible problems with route finding. If paths are not followed the going is quite tedious. Overhangs provide good shelters at various points; if found these could save carrying tents. All recorded traverses so far have been carried out from The Twins, over Satima and Table Mountain to the Mutubio Gate, then over the Kinangop and Elephant to South Kinangop. Limited water on route.
