Mount Kenya National Park consists mainly of the three peaks of Mount Kenya.

The Mount Kenya Forest Reserve encircles the national park and the two areas, combined, are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Mount Kenya National Park covers 715km² and the forest reserve at the base covers a further 705km² .
