Oloolua Nature Trail - Review
Covered up in the uptown business suburb of Karen is 250 hectares of the indigenous tropical dry Oloolua backwoods known as the Oloolua Nature Trail, which is home to the Institute of Primate Research (IPR). The National Museums of Kenya- which is the establishment that runs the bio-therapeutic exploration office, made the 5km long Oloolua Nature Trail amidst the backwood, furnishing a garden of peacefulness for city occupants looking to getaway the city buzzing about. The Oloolua Nature Trail is a favourite among the guests coming to do a short trek, to run along the trail, to walk along, or just for an unwinding experience in this tranquil setting. Formed community gatherings additionally come to research ecological preservation through guided tours in the backwoods. The Oloolua nature trail winds through thick backwoods vines and undergrowth underneath the indigenous trees and hedges, and in a few spots accompanying the course of the Mbagathi River that slices through the timberland. Large riverside bamboo stands draw the visitors to slide down some flimsy stairs to the stream and rest on seats constructed under the bamboo. Trickling water and the ambience of chirping birds are the main sounds which are heard as the visitors rest, and this calms the onlookers into a reflective temperament. The most tremendous of the attractions in the backwoods is a 20-foot waterfall overlooking the timberland passage. Along the path of the trail to the waterfall, visitors would have to go past a wooden tower that was built a few years back for reviewing a Crowned Eagle's home which was arranged close-by.

Oloolua Nature Trail, Nairobi Reviews
Hidden gem. Child friendly park with numerous trails, camping and meeting g sites. Has barbecue amenities. Very friendly and helpful staff. More natural than arboretum with very reasonable prices compared to other trails/parks
The place is amazing. Trust me when i say this. Good outing for family, couple and friends alike, food is allowed, picnic site available. Alot of colourful and marvelous natural sites. Worth your time and money.
Nice for nature and adventure lovers... A guy from My team hid a treasure in the forest and we spent the whole day looking for it... We never found it and never got tired of looking
Visited twice and I particularly liked the caves, the rare eagle's nest and water fall. Enjoyed sitting by the river on the benches too. I heard the big bird visits the nest once or twice a year from Congo. Would like to know when it visits so i can come for viewing.
The best place for a nature trail, especially in groups. A good place for picnics as well. The entry fee is affordable and the maintenance of the place is satisfactory.
