The Kenyan part of the park was gazetted in 1968 and the Ugandan part in 1992, covering 430 square miles. In the park, mammals, birds, and beautiful flora and fauna coexist in perfect harmony.

There is also a cave with ancient paintings near the trailhead, and the hot springs in the former volcano craters.
