Overview

The Aberdare National Park was created in 1950 to protect the forested slopes and moors of the Aberdare Mountains.
While the park has elephant, lion, rhino, black leopard and the beautiful but elusive bongo antelope, it is rarely visited by safari companies and individual travellers. There are a number of reasons for this, one is that the high rainfall turns the roads to mudslides and you need a 4×4 to get anywhere, and as a result the park often closes in the wet season.
Added to this is the dense forest, which makes game viewing tricky. Lastly, other than campsites with minimal facilities, the only accommodation is at two very expensive tree lodges.
