If you like nature, peace and quiet, this is a place to visit. One can hike, take a dip in the waterfall, camp, do a bonfire & cook or have a picnic. It will recharge you. I will be going back soon.

Oloolua is perfect if you feel liking getting away for a short while. It's great for a short walk especially if you live in Karen

Looking for a cheap way to kill a Saturday/Sunday afternoon? Go be at one with nature at Oloolua Nature Trail! The artificial waterfall adds to the scenic beauty. They have a cave too, pitch dark and scary in a beautiful way. Go go!

Visited with the family. So many beautiful mature trees and a troop of monkeys (about forty of them!) passed through the forest while we were there! With that being said, it was a little strange to see all the pipes and pumps around the waterfall......More

You can take Langata Rd. or Ngong Rd all the way to Karen. The nature trail is just past Karen Blixen House, where Karen Road dead ends.
