By road, the park is 180kms north of Nairobi.
Thick rainforest, spectacular waterfalls, cool mountain breezes and wild moorlands, Aberdare National Park is a hiking, fishing and wildlife paradise. The rich greens of the lichen and mossy forests here present contrast with the sandy yellows and browns of most other parks. And the cool climate, pervading mists, cold lakes and streams are a world away from the sunbaked hills and savannahs of the more well-known reserves.
Is fishing one of your go-to hobbies? Then Aberdare National Park should be one of your next bucket list experiences. One of the best experiences is preparing freshly caught fish. Not only freshly caught fish but fish that you caught by your hand. The Aberdare National Park offers some of the best trout fishing locations in the world.
The higher areas of the park were christened Scotland with Lions by early settlers. Here you will find the Brown and Rainbow Trouts that have equally adapted to the environment in the tropics. These trouts were initially brought to Kenya in 1900 by pioneering settlers.
The best fishing areas are found above the 2,000-meter level where the rivers drop down through the mountain forests and open glades. As you go higher you will discover that the higher you go the smaller the fish. Three rivers are offering easy access to fine fishing within the park. These rivers include The Amboni River, Chania and Gura rivers.
