Ngare Ndare Forest

Laikipia, Kenya
Ngare Ndare Forest is a lush indigenous forest at the foothills of Mt. Kenya. Azure pools glisten at the bottom of waterfalls and 200-year-old trees stretch into the canopy supporting a rich variety of bird and animal life. The forest is a vital corridor that links the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to Mount Kenya, and one which elephants have been using for centuries.
EcoTourism Activities
Tree Canopy Walk
The canopy walkway is a 40 ft. high aerial bridge of wire mesh and cables meandering through the tree canopy and extending 450 metres long. The walkway ends at a wooden platform 30ft. high, where you can relax and enjoy a view of the river from this elevated vantage point. Elephants and buffaloes frequently come here to drink and wallow, and one can enjoy a drink or a meal at the lofty leafy deck.
Forest Camping
We have two campsites that are sited near flowing water where guests can enjoy camping out in the wilds of the forest. The campsite is equipped with clean running water, a toilet and a bathroom. We have well-trained guides who can take you on informative and fun-filled camping that must be always accompanied by an armed ranger.
There is always the excitement and sometimes a danger in meeting up with the big five in a forest environment.
Bird 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.
