Mount Kenya National Park

Mount Kenya National Park’s alpine forests are home to an abundance of wildlife. The forests sustain larger mammals like elephants, Cape buffaloes, and leopards, and smaller mammals such as several species of antelope. Black-and-white colobus monkeys also inhabit the forests.

Several animals have evolved to thrive at high altitudes on Mount Kenya, including the Mount Kenya hyrax, a small, herbivorous mammal, and the common duiker, a small antelope.

The park is home to over 130 bird species, including sunbirds, starlings, and bearded vultures.
