Aberdare national park is located in central Kenya and is a series of continuous massifs that straddle 3 counties. The mountain is surrounded by a rain forest which is protected as a national park to protect the animals within.

The aberdare is the main water tower of Kenya. Two of the main rivers of Kenya start from the aberdare, namely the Athi and tana rivers. the mountains have streams on the moorland with clear cool waters where trout is plentiful.

Aberdare ranges have the most dramatic waterfalls. The highest waterfall in Kenya, the Karuru falls is found in Aberdares including others like Gura, Chania and Thompson waterfalls. The moorland rivers form a great opportunity for fly fishing of trout.

The moorland rivers were stocked with trout in the 1940s by the British settlers and the populations of brown trout have thrived since. Stocks are however low and a catch of 3 -5 fish is considered good.
