Zip Lining & Forest Hiking Tour

Zip Lining & Forest Hiking Tour


This is a 2 days/1 night great outdoor adventure tour for Zip lining and hiking at Keraita Forest caves and Waterfalls. It starts and ends in Nairobi, perfect for a weekend gate away.


Day 1:Nairobi-Keraita Forest

You will be picked up at 0800 hrs. at a central location at the city center. You will then embark on your trip to Keraita Forest with a lot of scenic view on the way.

Kereita forest forms part of Aberdares National Park and is home to magnificent Gatamaiyu River, caves, wild animals and a waterfall which rises at the height of 60 feet. The forest and the surrounding areas have animals such as elephants, leopards and colobus monkeys. The forest covers 47 square kilometres and is designated as an important bird area with quite a number of bird species and boasts over 138 species, of which 20 are considered rare.

We will drive direct to Carbacid Forest gate where our walk through Kereita Forest starts. We will visit a small natural spring in the neighborhood to view water bubbling from underground. This is actual carbon dioxide gas from the ground. The trail then goes deeper into the forest, with the undergrowth now getting thicker and more interesting and varied. Giant ferns and climbers abound deep in the forest, competing for the meager light filtering though old gnarled mammoth trees that stand tall and proud, untouched by human exploitation. The sounds of various species of monkeys and birds increasingly become a regular part of the jungle. The trail is hardly discernible due to infrequent visitors to this part of the forest.

After walking up and down two steep river valleys for about two hours, we will pass by Elephant Pool, a large natural water body that Elephants love to frolic in. A further one hour walk will finally bring us to Kereita Waterfall on Gatamaiyu River. To the right side of the waterfall is a cave with a small bat population. We will then have our packed lunch at a picnic site and continue with our hike.

We return to the lodge in good time for dinner and have the rest of the evening at leisure.
