Tourist attractions in Nyandarua County include the Aberdare National Park, Thomson’s Falls and Lake Ol Bolossat.
The Aberdare National Park, which sits on 767 square km in the higher areas of the Aberdare Ranges, is home to a huge population of wildlife. Some of the animals that can be spotted here include black rhinoceros, bongo (an elusive antelope), leopard, buffalo and eland among many others. The park is also home to over 240 species of birds including vultures, goshawks and sunbirds.

The Aberdare Mountain Ranges, located about 150km from Nairobi, offer spectacular waterfalls and views and are a great place for camping, hiking and bird watching.

Thomson’s Falls, situated just a kilometre from Nyahururu town, some 160km from Nairobi, offers a great stopover for those travelling to the Aberdare National Park from Nakuru. The falls, which drop 72 metres on the Ewaso Narok River, have one of the highest hippo pools in the country.

Lake Ol Bolossat, the only lake in the former Central Province, is an internationally recognised habitat for birds, with 180 species of birds. It is also home to 15 species of animals including hippopotamus. The lake is a popular destination among lovers of birdlife.

Travelling to Nyandarua County

Nyandarua County is easily accessible from Nairobi by road. There are tens of matatus (commuter vans) plying the Nairobi to Nyahururu route on a daily basis. The 160km journey takes about two and a half hours due to the bad condition of the 58km road between Gilgil and Nyahururu. The vehicles are usually boarded at the Nyamakima bus stop near River Road.
Nyandarua is also accessible from Nyeri town, via the 82-km Nyeri-Nyahururu road, and from Nakuru town via the 80km-Nakuru-Ndundori-Ol Kalou road.
Aberdare National Park is accessible on the eastern side via Naro Moru and Nyeri, about 150km from Nairobi. The western side of the park is accessible from Naivasha, about 87km from Nairobi. The national park can be reached by air via the Mweiga Airstrip, located just opposite to the national park’s headquarters along the Nyahururu-Nyeri road.
