The Aberdares mountain range in central Kenya is home to numerous caves behind waterfalls. One of the most popular is the cave behind Thomson’s Falls, which can be reached via a hiking trail from the town of Nyeri. The cave is large and has a pool of water at the bottom, making it a popular swimming spot.
Other caves in the area include Lamb’s Cave and Kamae Cave. Lamb’s Cave can be reached by climbing up a waterfall, while Kamae Cave is located at the top of a cliff and can only be accessed with ropes and climbing gear. Both caves are noted for their impressive stalactites and stalagmites.
The Aberdares mountain range is also home to several animal sanctuaries, including the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant Orphanage and The Ark Animal Sanctuary.
