Aberdare National Park including Lake Nakuru and Hell's Gate National Parks
The Aberdare National
Park encloses two different environments; the Kinangop Plateau in the west is a 60km stretch of moorland, peaks
and forest, while the Salient is an outcrop of dense
rainforest to the east. The park has a variety of fauna,
flora and scenery that you won't find elsewhere. Elephants
and buffaloes are the dominant animals though you will
find black rhinos, bongo, antelopes and leopards.
Lake Nakuru National Park covers an area of 188 sq km. Flamingo-frosted,
salt-encrusted, acacia-haloed and guarded by the prehistoric splendour of a grey-green
forest of Euphorbia candelabrum, this park offers sanctuary
to some of the world's most endangered creatures.
Gate National Park is dusty but dramatic. You can walk
or cycle through without a ranger or guide. The looming
cliffs and the gorge are spectacular. Zebras, Thomson's
gazelles and baboons are common.
