The Aberdare National Park is one of Kenya's best-kept secrets. Just 160km north of Nairobi, it is home to some varied and breathtaking landscapes. From north to south runs the Aberdare mountain range which reaches a maximum altitude of 3995m at Ol Doinyo Satima Peak. In the valley between the peaks there are icy mountain streams, ideal for flyfishing or an effective wake-up call! The official name of the park is now Nyandarua (Kikuyu for 'a drying hide') but it is still commonly referred to as the Aberdares, after Lord Aberdare who used to be president of the Royal Geographic Society.
