The top of the Aberdares is truly amazing. One can forget one is in Africa, what with the cool trout stream and Scottish highland vistas.

A very beautiful park, quite green & bushy. A wide range of wild animals easily came into view during our short visit. Rothschild giraffes, hyenas, buffalos, elephants and gazelles. The weather this time was quite ambient. A great place to visit!

Awesome park but the dense vegetation makes it a little difficult to spot game, despite this you're almost certain to see hyenas, buffalos and elephants. If you enjoy mud, this park is a must especially in the rainy season.
