Another hidden gem in Nairobi, apart from Karura Forest, is Oloolua forest in Karen. The perfectly close gateway.

If you fancy a morning bike ride then join us this Saturday.

Expect to see a 20ft waterfall, breathtaking cliffs, riverside tracks, small bridges, Mau-Mau caves, thick forest vines, a papyrus swamp, a picnic site, monkeys, primates, and loads of birds. Best of all is the serene environment.
A tiny bamboo forest in the swamps beckons you to descend the stairs to the benches for a rest.
Mbagathi River cuts through the forest in some places.
This Protected content of indigenous tropical dry forest is home to the Institute of Primate Research, run by The National Museums of Kenya.

RECOMMENDED: Personal ID, comfortable hiking gear, water, snacks/drinks, sunglasses/hat, sunscreen, and rain gear (in case of change in weather).
