Aberdare National Park

Overview

Aberdare National Park consists of the Aberdare Mountain Range and valleys and spans 766 sq. km, making it one of Africa’s smaller national parks, but also one very much worth visiting. Beautiful streams, waterfalls and forests make up the park, as its landscape and geography varies as the elevation increases.

Aberdare is home to many animal species including buffalo, leopard, elephant, wild dog, baboon, jackal as well as roughly 250 species of birds and more. The park is also home to the second largest black rhino population in Africa. As the park is lush with forested area, it is an ideal hiking spot and allows visitors to have up—close and intimate wildlife viewing experiences with the many animals that inhabit the park.

Join us on Kenya Safaris to this one-of-a-kind park. We have safaris departing from Nairobi going to Aberdare and other great Kenya Parks.
