Abardares National Park is home to Treetops Lodge, the wooden lodge that was built on stilts overlooking a waterhole. This is where Princess Elizabeth became queen of England during her stay there in 1952.
Aberdare is also the most likely place to see the rare Bongo antelope.
As part of the Aberdare Mountain Range, the park offers stunning landscapes. The National Park itself is made up of open Afro-alpine moorland, hills and crags, thickets of giant heather, tussock grass and bogs. The flanks of the Aberdare Mountains are covered with dense indigenous and bamboo forest, hidden trout streams and waterfalls.
