Aberdare was established in 1950, this national park in Kenya is small (at just under 800 square kilometres total) but features breathtaking landscapes and wildlife. Located north of Nairobi by about one hundred kilometres, this national park has been created with the intention to protect and preserve the land and wildlife of the Aberdare Mountains.
The Aberdare Mountains are a volcanic mountain range, and as such the land features volcanic soil that is rich in nutrients, which provides excellent growing conditions for all of the native plants, mainly the trees that form the region's vibrant forests.
Because the mountain range is volcanic, the landscape as a whole is quite dramatic, rugged, and picturesque. Within the lush forests, you can find steep ravines and roaring waterfalls, along with open moorlands..
