Ngare Ndare Forest is a lush indigenous forest at the foothills of Mt. Kenya that serves as the centuries old corridor of choice for elephants travelling from Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to Mount Kenya. It is 4 hours out of Nairobi and just 40 minutes out of Nanyuki. Azure pools glisten at the bottom of waterfalls and 200 year old trees stretch into a canopy supporting a rich variety of bird and animal life.
There are a myriad of activities for folks of all ages, including tree canopy walks, forest walking, forest camping, rock climbing, game driving, bird watching, canyoning, and waterfall watching. Ngare Ndare Forest hosts a huge number of bird species. We have trained and experienced guides who help visitors to spot and identify various birds within the forest.
The Ngare Ndare Forest was one of the finalists in the 2015 Equator Prize Initiative. This prestigious award recognizes the outstanding work of indigenous people on forests, climate change and community development around the world.
