Owner description: The Karura Forest Reserve is an urban upland forest on the outskirts of Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. This remarkable geographical location and natural resource is one of the largest gazetted forests in the world fully within a city limits. It covers an area of about 1,000 ha (2,500 ac) and today is a shining example of how country-based corporate social responsibility and individual philanthropy can serve to secure and protect a country's natural resources. The forest offers eco-friendly opportunities for Kenyans and visitors to enjoy a leafy green respite from the hustle and bustle of the city to walk, to jog, or simply to sit quietly and experience the serenity of nature in all its diversity.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities, Wheelchair access, Food available for purchase

went just the other day for october fest event held in the forest. the venue was oozing with loud music, a lot of german cultural themes and entertainment, great drinks by castle lager brands and mores great life due to huge enthusiastic crowds...kalabash band brought the "forest down" with their well selected choice of music...an experience worth looking forward too next year!!!

We have walked in the Karura Forest reserve a few times (and will do so again) the forest is spectacular, especially when the river is flowing strongly and the waterfall is thundering. This is a walk well worth having on your list of things to do

It's a very nice forest where you will most likely see monkeys at the very begining, you have a nice river that turns into some kind of falls, it's very good to go there with family or friends.
