The arboretum is a peaceful and relaxing little enclave in the bustling, noisy city of Nairobi. Ideal for a stroll and to wind down and contemplate. 30 minutes is enough to refresh yourself to engage in the busy frantic pace of the city.

A great place to visit for picnic, photo-shoot, team building among other activities. We held a friend's birthday party here and it was the best. Alot of space to play and charges are very fair.

You will always find something interesting happening here. From morning bootcamps and yoga, to entire church congregations, to choir practises. It's not always a peaceful, nature experience. It's often just lovely to walk around such a melting pot of energies. Of course, the monkeys are...More

Easy park to check out some of the local flora and fauna if you're around. For a longer hike near town, Karura Forest is a much better destination, but the Arboretum feels surprisingly natural for how close it is to the hustle and bustle. Keep...More
