This is a nice trail that is easily hiked. If you have dogs you will not be able to go to all locations. Stairs to the water are hard to maneuver for the four legged friends and the monkey research area is only for primates and humans.

Fresh air and great trails hidden so close to city chaos. Incredible scenes, greenery and riverlets. Sad this place is not promoted as it should. It would make good biking and jogging tracks.

I have been to Oloolua Trail a good number of times. We like to go there during the weekend with our daughter. It's only a short walk to the waterfall after which you follow the trail along the river and to the cave (small cave). After that you can decide to walk to the swampy area or go past the... More

This is well hidden treasure for outdoor lovers! I have enjoyed the cool breeze home to the institute of primate research, so a seeing a monkey or two is not uncommon, the birds and most of all the waterfall :). Good for a picnic or a time to cool off. Give it a go, you'll be back soon :)

This is a poor hike. There is no reason to pay money. Maybe if you live in Nairobi and want to get out of town. But a tourist should not bother with this place. With all the money they take in they should fix the signs and give some direction about the path. Total waste of time and money.

Nice morning out with the dog. Natural forest trails. You won't see large mammals on this hike, but lots of birds and butterflies. Watch out for mushrooms! If you are lucky then some smaller mammals are possible.
