Tailor-made Aberdares Holidays

The spiny Aberdare mountain range stretches across Kenya’s central highlands, breathing cool air across heather-spotted moors and mist-covered forests. Dinosaurs once roamed among these ancient peaks, making them East Africa’s oldest, home to flourishing Afro-montane forests where towering waterfalls crash. This unique landscape was once coveted by British colonists for its refreshing climes and later became a fierce battleground during Kenya’s war for independence. It’s here that Queen Elizabeth II was famously holidaying in 1952 when her father King George VI passed away and she ascended the throne.

Today, visitors come to Aberdare National Park to see its rare wildlife. Safaris may reveal the shy, rust-red bongo antelope and forests home to giant hogs and endangered colobus monkeys. The park also provides sanctuary for hunted black rhinos that graze the plateau alongside elephant herds. Stay in lavish colonial hotels like the famous Ark, which has a flood-lit waterhole and salt lick that acts as a magnet for animals. Throughout the night, prepare for staff to buzz your room so you catch a glimpse of rare black leopards stalking through the darkness.

To explore the Aberdares’ unique landscape and wildlife, contact our Kenya experts who can organise a stay at a lavish hotel with daily game drives.
