Located in the western shadows of the Mt. Kenya massif, Aberdare National Park encompasses a wide variety of landscapes, attractions and climates that make it a favorite destination for a broad spectrum of Kenyan travelers. If wildlife is what you're after, these 766 square kilometers won't disappoint, housing everything from the famed Big 5 (leopards, lions, elephants, rhinos and buffalo) to more obscure species like the spotted serval cat and the bongo antelope. Waterfalls tickle your fancy? The peaks and valleys of the Aberdare Range contain a multitude of cataracts, including 3-tiered Karuru Falls: the tallest cascade in Kenya. Then there are the mountains themselves - peaks like Oldoinyo Lesatima and Mount Kinangop that rise to a maximum height of 4,000 m (13,100 ft) and offer plenty of great trekking opportunities. Suffice to say there's an abundance of things to see and do, so consider booking a campsite if you want to truly experience one of the country's most geographically varied national parks.
