    I would like to enquire about the charges, the 100ksh per adult and 500ksh for the guard, who are these payments made to and where.

    • JamboNairobi says:

      Thanks for asking Millicent. The charges are levied by the Kenya Forest Services at the entrance to Karura Forest.
      I hope that helps. Enjoy the hike and sightseeing.

    Camp charges Please??

    • JamboNairobi says:

      Thanks for asking Carolle. I called Friends of Karura Forest to inquire about camp charges, and they said they are currently not providing facilities for camping. I’ve therefore amended the post accordingly.

    As a picnic site,what activities that are undertaken here?
    Do u offer this service to visitors.
    kindly reply.

    • JamboNairobi says:

      Thanks for asking S.K. Visitors like to take walks through Karura Forest, or view the Karura Waterfalls. Others like to relax by Lily Lake, or watch multitudes of butterflies gracefully flitting about at the Butterfly Pond and other parts of the Forest. Karura Forest is a truly enchanting place for nature lovers.
      We only provide you with information. For a guided tour of the place, kindly contact Friends of Karura Forest (John Chege, 0724-215423).

    • JamboNairobi says:

      I hope you enjoyed your tour of Karura Forest James. I believe your question is directed at Kenya Forest Services. I doubt they monitor this website. You might have a better chance of getting a response if you contact them directly.

    I would like to know how much you charge for the wedding ground. Wedding is to be held July 23rd ’16

    • LivinginNairobi says:

      I don’t think KFS people monitor this site, so they are unlikely to respond. Try calling them, or pass by one of the Karura Forest Gates to enquire.

    […] Mention Karura forest, and the Late Nobel Laureate Wangari Maathai comes to the mind of every Kenyan, since she is known for fighting to preserve this forest.
