Aberdare National Park
Located near Mount Kenya, Aberdare can get relatively cold and is often plagued by an early morning mist that nonetheless dissipates as the sun rises. It has two contrasting habitats; the Kinangop Plateau, which is comprised of moorland, and the Salient, which is all dense, lush rainforest dotted with waterfalls. Due to its high altitude, Aberdare provides some of the best panoramic views, hiking and wildlife experiences in Kenya. But you do have to be on high alert here as the thick vegetation forms a good hideout for animals. Elephants, leopards, hyenas, buffaloes, black rhino and even the rare black leopard are some of the wildlife you might encounter here.
