Black rhinos, lions, baboons, giant forest hogs, and Cape buffalo are other animals you may find during a game drive in the Aberdares. Bird watching is astounding, with over 250 species recorded.
Staying at Aberdare
Would you like to see the park at night? Consider a stay at The Ark, a lodge located in the park itself. Situated next to a salt lick and watering hole, it offers amazing views of safari animals such as elephants, hyenas, and Cape buffalos. A hide next to the watering hole enables close-up photography of these magnificent creatures. If you’re here for the birds, you’ll want to rise early for a guided walk by one of the resident naturalists. Turacos, bulbuls, and robinchats are some of the many birds you may see.
The Ark is surrounded by such an abundance of wildlife, that you may be hesitant to sleep for fear of missing out on anything. Not to worry—lodge staff are happy to buzz your room for any unique nighttime sightings.
