The Aberdare National Park (also Nyandarua National Park) is located in the highlands of central Kenya at 2000 to 3999 m above sea level, about 100 km north of Nairobi. The National Park got its official name after the explorer of the region, Lord Aberdare, a former president of the Royal Geographical Society.
Just off the Aberdares lies the private Solio Reserve. It is known for its rhinos, which are actively protected here.
This reserve will also be visited by us as part of the Aberdares visit.

You do not need to be afraid of animals. The animals are a long way from humans and more afraid of you than the other way around.
