The Aberdare National Park is located 160km north of Nairobi and is a volcanic range that forms the eastern wall of the famous Great Rift Valley. Two peaks dominate the Aberdares range; Ol Donyo Lesatima and Kinangop. They are separated by rich forest land. The terrain is diverse with deep ravines that cut through the forested eastern and western slopes and there are many clear streams and waterfalls. The Aberdares is a water catchment area feeding two of Kenya’s most important rivers - the Tana and Athi rivers
The Aberdares is a park with outstanding scenery and natural beauty with its diverse landscape, waterfalls and mountain range. The park is still very much under-visited, despite having the world famous Treetops & Ark hotels. The park is home to elephant and buffalo, black rhino, bongo antelope, bush pig, giant forest hog, black serval cat, lion and black leopard. There are hundreds of birds species and fishing in the many clear water rivers is an alternative activity
