Karura Forest is open to all visitors who share a love for nature and common respect for Kenya’s unspoilt natural beauty. There is a modest entry fee, and all proceeds go to maintaining Karura safe and secure.
There are many things to do in Karura, and all activities are guided by the principal:
“Leave nothing behind but footprints, take nothing away but memories.“ -Wangari Maathai
Karura’s late beloved Patron, Prof. Wangari Maathai was quite clear. She did not want Karura to be turned into an ‘amusement park’, but rather kept undeveloped to serve as the green lungs and water catchment of Nairobi, and a place for all people to enjoy quietly and contemplate the importance of our environment.
Currently, visitors are enjoying:
Walking, Jogging, Tree-Planting, Just Sitting, Bird-watching, Dog-walking, Educational tours, Concerts, Weddings, Team-Building, Exhibitions, Dog-training, Sport & Fitness, Horse-riding, Mountain-biking, Tennis & more.
