Ngare Ndare forest is a lush indigenous forest at the northern foothills of Mt. Kenya. Azure pools glisten at the bottom of waterfalls and 200 years 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 forest reserve, and one which elephants have been using for centuries.

Getting there & getting around

The forest is about an hours drive from Nanyuki. Turn left immediately after Timau town, 400m from Timau police road block, along the Nanyuki Meru road to a rough road. You will see our sign post there. Drive 11KM to the forest gate, then proceed inside the forest for another 4KM then you will see the sign on your right showing direction to the canopy walkway, platform and blue pools. The forest has a driving track and walking trails. You can access the forest by a saloon car but for best
access to the waterfalls, a 4WD is recommended. Driving is the easiest way to the pools but one learns more about the forest by walking. Trained guides are available to help one explore the forest.


Bookings are done in advance to avoid inconveniences, between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm on weekdays,
from 8: 00 am to 1:00pm on weekends. The best times to visit are early morning, 8:00 to 10:00 am, as
most wildlife will hide from the midday heat and also to avoid heat while on a nature walk.

What to wear and carry

Wear comfortable walking shoes or trainers and loose-fitting lightweight clothing. A hat, sunglasses
and sunscreen may also come in handy. It is also important to carry drinking water, binoculars,
camera and wildlife books especially for birds in addition to picnic and camping equipment in case
one intends to stay overnight.


There are two wet seasons: April-June (long rains) and November-December (short rains). The other
months will be usually hot and dry.
