Mount Kenya is visible from the western border of the park. The highest point in the park of Mount Ol Doinio Lesatimakto ( 3999 meter ), the name of which from the Masai language translates as "the mountain of a young bull". The park is located on a volcanic fault, because of this the soil here has a reddish hue. The Kikuyu people believe that the god Ngai lives in the Aberder ridge.

The park is tightly intertwined with history, because here young Elizabeth was proclaimed Queen of Great Britain. She found out about this when she was sitting on a tree, so sometimes they say: "For the first time in world history, a young girl climbed a tree by a princess, and went down from him already as a queen". This tree was a hotel built in the branches of a huge ficus. Now the tree has burned down, and in its place a hotel has been built, copying the former hotel on the tree - "Tree's Top".
