Day Trip Kereita Forest Adventure
Just 45 minutes away from the city,Escape into the Forest,Mountain air,captivating views andadventures to share with the whole family,friends and colleagues.
The Kereita Forest at the southern-most end of the Aberdares range has interesting hiking trails and natural features like the Kereita Cave and Waterfall. The trails were established by Kijabe Environment Volunteers (KENVO), a local community based organization that works to conserve this rich biodiversity. One of these trails, the Carbacid trail, leads to Kereita Waterfall on Gatamaiyu River, and the adjacent cave that is home to a small bat colony.
The walk through Kereita Forest starts at the Carbacid Forest Gate. This general area sits on top of an underground natural CO2 reservoir that is currently mined by Carbacid Ltd for industrial and commercial usage, hence the name of the Forest Gate. You can visit a small natural spring in the neighborhood to view water bubbling from underground as this gas makes its way to the surface.
During the first hour, you’ll hike through large open clearings created by the controversial Shamba System. This system is credited with the large-scale destruction of Kenya’s indigenous forests countrywide during former President Moi’s rule. Current efforts by KENVO to rehabilitate this section of the forest are continuously thwarted by local farmers driving their cattle into the forest land, in the process destroying newly planted tree seedlings.
Just 45 minutes away from the city, surrounded by the Aberdare Ranges and in the Kereita Forest, Kiambu County, offers a pocket-friendly wide range of activities that will cater to your spirit of adventure.
