Mount Kenya National Park
is the highest mountain in Kenya and the second highest in Africa (after Kilimanjaro), located in central Kenya, just south of the equator, north-east of Nyeri and about 160 km north-east of Nairobi.
The mountain and the surrounding region make up a protected natural area, Mount Kenya National Park. On the mountain is one of the atmospheric monitoring stations of the Global Atmosphere Watch. The summit system, which includes seven named peaks, is home to twelve small and shrinking glaciers.
Aberdare National Park
is located in central Kenya in an area straddling the counties of Nyeri, Kiambu and Nyandarua.
The territory covers an area of high naturalistic value of 76,570 hectares which includes a large part of the Aberdare mountains and the related forest, from an altitude of about 1,829 m. to the top of the highest peak, Oldonyo Lesatima, at 3,999 m. above sea level. Areas above 3,500 meters fall within the East African Mountain Moorland ecoregion, while those below the East African Mountain Forest ecoregion.
The climate is temperate with rain and fog present for most of the year with rainfall ranging from about 1000 mm per year on the north-western slopes up to 3,000 mm in the south-eastern slopes.
Lake Bogoria National Park
is in the Great Rift Valley, Kenya, covering Lake Bogoria and the land immediately surrounding the lake. It is administered by the Kenya Wildlife Service.
The lake lies in a trough below the Ngendelel Escarpment, a sheer wall 600 meters (2,000 ft) high. The lake covers 32 square kilometers (12 sq mi). It is geothermically active on the western shore, with geysers and hot springs. The geologist J.W. Gregory described the lake in 1892 as “the most beautiful view in Africa”.
The reserve is in a semi-arid area. The only major river feeding the lake is the Waseges River, which rises on the northern slopes of the Aberdare Range. The Waseges runs through productive agricultural land higher up, through bush and scrub used for grazing, and then through very dry bush before entering the lake at its northern end. The lake is surrounded by grasslands dotted with bushes. There is acacia-ficus woodland to the south, and the north merges into a papyrus swamp.
The park was opened in November 1970. Facilities for tourists include the park lodge, three public campsites and one privately operated campsite. Visitors may also bathe in the hot springs, which form a natural spa. The reserve was submitted as a candidate World Heritage Site in 1999.
