The Aberdare National Park, was established in 1950,with an area of 767 Km2 covers the higher areas of the Aberdare Mountain Ranger of Central Kenya, from altitude of 1829M to 4001M above sea level.  The park offers a wide range of beautiful landscapes - from the mountain peaks that rise to 14,000 feet above sea level, to their deep, v-shaped valleys intersected by streams and rivers, waterfalls, and even moorland, bamboo forests and rainforests as one goes down to lower altitudes.The moorlands comprise undulating hills, bogs, clear mountain streams, numerous waterfalls and magnificent views occuring between the highest peaks of the Aberdare mountain range: Oldonyo Lesatima [ 4001m ] to the north and Kinangop

The topography is quite diverse with deep ravines that cut through the forested eastern and western slopes. Animals easily observed in the park include; the Black Rhino, leopard, baboon, black and white Colobus monkey and sykes monkey. Rarer sightings include those of lions, the golden cat and the bongo- an elusive forest antelope that lives in the bamboo forest. Animals like the eland and spotted and melanistic serval cats can be found higher up in the moorlands.

Aberdare National Park is famous for its Tree-top lodge - Treetops and Fairmont Ark Lodge. With walkways and accommodation raised into the forest canopy, you can watch animals from a unique viewing  point.

Positioned by waterhole's and natural salt licks, animals provide constant entertainment and seem undisturbed by the stream of curious visitors, some of whom stay up all night to catch sightings of shy animals by floodlight. There is even a viewing hide dug below ground with windows level with the waterhole, where elephants fee come within inches of your face.
