Embark on the tour with morning pickup from your apartment/hotel\airbnb within Nairobi. Enter the forest and begin your hiking or biking experience. Your guide will explain the different species of trees and birds, as well as the sights and sounds of the park.

The walking trails all offer superb scenery and are marked and colour-coded by length, either eight, six, or three miles. The biking trails run around 7.5 miles. Wander through the grass-covered forest areas, past waterfalls, caves, and wetlands. There are numerous picnic benches within the park, where you can sit down to cool off.

Also within the reserve are many areas of interest, both historical and ecological. For example, The Mau-Mau freedom fighters used the sacred caves on the reserve as hideouts, and Lily Lake is the site of an abandoned quarry. Return to the entrance point and check out.
