Mt. Kenya & The Aberdares holidays, Kenya Destinations 

 Travel to where snowcapped mountains sit on the equator, safari experiences traverse through deep forests, and where Queen Elizabeth ascended to the British throne – Mount Kenya & The Aberdares is certainly a unique region. Spot elephants, buffalos, giant forest hogs and rhinos wandering free in The Aberdares National Park and explore the foothills of snowcapped Mount Kenya.

The Aberdares National Park was created in 1950 to protect the forested slopes of the ancient Aberdares Range, with wildlife ranging from elephant and lion to the black and white Colobus monkey and beautiful but lesser sighted bongo – a horned antelope with distinctive white stripes. Seek out the endangered black rhino (so-called to differentiate from the white rhino with its square upper lip – the black rhino has a hook lip). There are also over 250 species of bird.

Savor the crisp mountain air and explore the lower slopes of Mount Kenya with game drives, forest walks and mountain hikes. Of the region’s accommodation, it is Treetops that is the most widely known. This rustic lodge high in the trees is the place where a 25-year old Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne in 1952. Watch game in the moonlight, attracted to the waterholes and salt licks around the lodge.

Mt. Kenya & The Aberdares is just south of the equator and approximately two and a half hours from Nairobi, lies Mount Kenya – an extinct volcano and Africa’s second highest mountain.
