Aberdare Range

Aberdare Range is located in the southwestern part of Central Kenya and is a diverse eclectic collection of African ecosystems.  The valleys are traversed by streams and rivers and backdropped with the Aberdare Mountain Range.  The range features summits that reach heights of 13,000 feet (4,000 m). The streams and rivers coming out of the mountains into the valley give way to waterfalls.  The temperate grasslands neighbor up to bamboo forests as well as rich diverse rainforests. The forested ravines deliver some of the best waterfalls.  These varied habitats serve as the perfect home of an abundance of varied wildlife. Aberdare is a wildlife haven.  The predator species travelers can hope to see include lion, leopard, African wild dog, hyena, jackal, and the African golden cat.  Some of the other popular species include eland, bushbuck, buffalo, reedbuck, giant forest hog, warthog, and the endangered black rhinoceros.
