The Aberdare National Park covers the higher areas of the Aberdare Mountain Range of central Kenya and the Aberdare Salient to the east. Established in May 1950, the Aberdare National Park covers an area of 766 square kilometers and forms part of the Aberdare Mountain Range.

Due to the range of altitudes within the park (up to 14,000 feet above sea level), a huge variety of landscapes can be found within the park. The varying terrain is able to support a diverse range of flora and fauna.  Large numbers of Lion, Leopard, African Elephant, Black Rhino, African Hunting Dog, Mountain Reedbuck, Cape Buffalo, Eland and Duikers Olive can be found within the Park.

Due to its location roughly 100 km North of Nairobi, Aberdare is one of the most accessible parks on the African continent.  Stay at either Treetops Lodge or The Ark. Both are located next to watering holes and have large observation decks.
