Aberdares National Park is located in central province of Kenya cutting across two counties: Nyeri and Nyandarua. It is approximately 100km from Nairobi city. The park has mountain ranges, which rise up to 4,300m high with rivers descending on scarps forming beautiful waterfalls. At its lowland, rainforest, moorland and bamboo forests are thick due to the high amount of rainfall experienced in the region.

You may see from your lodge’s deck Elephants, Rhinos, Leopard, Bushbucks, Bongos and Forest Hogs, drinking water from the near-by waterhole. More than 250 species of birds are evident in the park as well. Apart from enjoying walking through picnics, visitors also love seeing rivers, animals and birds.

Lake Nakuru

Lake Nakuru is a standpoint and a harbor for watching more than 400 species of birds in rift valley. As you visit the lake, game animals are in large numbers. Hippos, buffalos and many species of birds are unstoppable. Flamingos are prominently notable just like in Lake Naivasha.

Lake Nakuru National Park is home to few remaining Rhinos in Kenya. Two Rhino species thrive in this park; the square-lipped or White Rhino preferring to graze in the short grass of the plains, and it’s more nervous browsing cousin, the Black Rhino, that tends to keep to the cover of thicker bush. Lake Nakuru also offers great sightseeing of larger predators like the lions and Leopards.
