Ngare Ndare Forest Adventure

Forest hike, Canopy Walk, Waterfalls and River walks (Day Trip)

After breakfast, and armed with packed lunch, leave for Ngare Ndare Forest which is located at the foothills of Mt. Kenya, less than one hour drive from our accommodation.

Ngare Ndare Forest is a small beautiful natural forest which is a UN World Heritage Site that acts as the elephant migratory route between Mt. Kenya and the dry northern lowlands. A short hike under the canopy of gigantic natural trees will take you to the spectacular streams and waterfalls found in this forest. You can also enjoy the breathtaking walk along the canopy sky walkway. The canopy walkway is a 40 ft. high aerial bridge of wire mesh and cables meandering through the tree canopy and extending 500 metres long. If lucky, you will spot wildlife including elephants from the skywalk. After a picnic lunch visit a nearby community project.

Mau Mau Cave Exploration

Today is a day to explore caves in Mt. Kenya Forest. After breakfast enjoy a day trip to the Mau Mau Caves through a guided forest walk. You will learn from your knowledgeable guide about the connection between the Mau Mau Caves and the history of Kenya’s struggle for independence which was spearheaded by the Mau Mau guerilla freedom fighters.  A 9 Kilometer panoramic hike through the forest will take you to the caves. Walking through the forest is a great way of connecting with nature. During the walk there are prospects of seeing Colobus monkeys, Syke’s monkeys, Olive Baboons and a host of forest birds. A waterfall in the nearby Burguret River is visible from the top of the shallow caves. The waterfall adds to the natural beauty of the area. Take your memorable pictures before we drive back to our villas.
