I just went the last Saturday and I really liked it. First of all the location is a great advantage due that is just 30ksh with a matatu from town (we stopped in Belgium embassy)
I went there with a friend because now they hire bikes and we got a lot of fun cycling. You can enjoy a nice sights and is really peaceful, places like the falls are pretty well indicated and I also saw more people just hiking with the family or running with the dog; I trust I will be back sooner.
