Aberdare National Park
Amboseli Elephants

The Aberdares are an isolated volcanic range that forms the eastern wall of the Rift Valley, running roughly 100km north south between Nairobi and Thomsons Falls.
There are two main peaks: Ol Donyo Lesatima (3,999m) and Kinangop (3,906m) separated by alpine moorland at over 3,000m.

HOW TO GET THERE


By Road
Use the tarmac road from either Nyeri or Naro Moru (160 kms from Nairobi) on the eastern side. A road crossing the park connects with another from Naivasha and North Kinangop on the west.
Major towns from which you can access the park are Nyeri (154 km from Nairobi), Nyahururu (188 km from Nairobi) and Naivasha (87 km from Nairobi).

By Air

Use either the Mweiga Airstrip, next to the park HQ or Nyeri Airstrip which is 12 km from Mweiga HQ.

Park Roads

Form a good network and consist of 60km and 396km of primary and secondary roads respectively. However, navigating much of the road network during the wet season remains a major challenge, especially the central Aberdares. The Northern Aberdares, which also happens to be cut off from the central Aberdares, has few motorable roads.
