Day 1

07:00 Am: We will pick you at a central point in Nairobi or from your hotel and depart for Kereita Forest.

You will make a scheduled stop at the view point on the side of the escarpment to enjoy the view of the Rift valley floor from a birds eye view. The rift valley system was formed 5 million years ago and the rift runs from the red sea through Ethiopia and Kenya and Tanzania. The rift valley is an active volcanic area and has some of the most interesting features including more than 8 lakes, dormant and active volcanic mountains and hotsprings and geysers like the Olkaria geothermal wells and Lake Bogoria geysers.
You can actually see the volcanic Mt Suswa and Mt Longonot from this high place with their evergreen craters and the undulating green rift valley floor. The view from here is just amazing. Make sure to take as many photos from here as you can.

0900 Am. Arrive at the Forest.

Two main activities are included in the package.

2 hours nature walk & zip lining (2 lines)

Zipline at Kereita Forest, the longest zip tour in East Africa with a great view of Kereita dense forest, beautiful landscapes and fresh mountain air. Fly over the forest at speeds of up to 60 km/h, as you enjoy the view beneath you forest canopies.

Our walk through Kereita Forest starts at the Carbacid Forest Gate. We will visit a small natural spring in the neighbourhood to view water bubbling from underground. This is actual carbon dioxide gas from the ground.
The trail then goes deeper into the forest, with the undergrowth now getting thicker and more interesting and varied. Giant ferns and climbers abound deep in the forest, competing for the meager light filtering though old gnarled mammoth trees that stand tall and proud, untouched by human exploitation. The sounds of various species of monkeys and birds increasingly become a regular part of the jungle.

Lunch at the Forest restaurant. As you eat, the view delights as far as the eye can see into the Aberdare Ranges and on a clear sunny day, Mount Kenya is majestically visible.
