Fun walk and great atmosphere for children

Its a great nature walk, site sounds for both couples and for young families. We enjoyed a great picnic. Its worth a visit if you are a nature lover.

Looking for a cheap way to kill a Saturday/Sunday afternoon? Go be at one with nature at Oloolua Nature Trail! The artificial waterfall adds to the scenic beauty. They have a cave too, pitch dark and scary in a beautiful way. Go go!

Visited with the family. So many beautiful mature trees and a troop of monkeys (about forty of them!) passed through the forest while we were there! With that being said, it was a little strange to see all the pipes and pumps around the waterfall... I wish there was a way they could have kept them a little more hidden?... More

If you are looking for a remote place to just go and be alone or spend some time alone out with just nature around you, this is the place. While it also serves as a very good picnic spot for groups, I found it to serve individuals better. Its a matter of preference though. Its a nice place to go... More

Oloolua Nature Trail is part of the 662 Ha Oloolua Forest. It is a little-known paradise of rich vegetation and with so much to offer the traveller wanting a place away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi city yet near enough to afford a spontaneous decision to visit. Visitors can visit the 37 M long natural caves stretching deep... More

There are not many safe places to walk in Nairobi. This is one of them. It offers space for a pleasant short walk close to the city, and is a nice adjunct to a boozy lunch at one of the nearby Karen restaurants

Went once and keep going back for more, calm and collected trail. Good for walking and just enjoying the environment. Inexpensive and can even host a picnic.
