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.

Breathtaking is an understatement! Simply, no word can describe this place. It has all the elements of a fantasy such as a 20 foot waterfall, a picnic site overlooking a river, a cave, a swamp and dense vegetation that you almost have to walk on your hands and feet. It is not crowded, you practically feel like you are alone... More

The Oloolua Nature trail is a great place to cool off especially after a tough week at work. The environment quiet is refreshing, a sharp contrast of the Nairobi CBD. The nature trails is located within Oloolua forest and are well maintained with bits of hanging vegetation that make it even more interesting to traverse. With River Mbagathi cutting across... More

The Oloolua Nature Reserve is great - just down the road from Karen Blixen Museum (literally). We went with a large group of people and had a wonderful time. It's amazing that one can get lost in the beauty of these forests whilst actually just being a few kilometres away from the chaos that is Nairobi. The trials are not... More
