The canopy walkway is a 40 ft. high aerial bridge of wiremesh and cables meandering through the tree canopy and extending 450 metres long. The walkway ends at a wooden platform 30ft. high, where you can relax and enjoy a view of the river from this elevated vantage point. Elephants and buffaloes frequently come here to drink and wallow.
Ngare Ndare (Maa for “goats water”) Forest is the main corridor between Mount Kenya and Lewa Conservancy. Ngare Ndare is the only indigenous forest in Kenya with an expanding canopy cover, and some of the ancient African Olive and Red Cedar trees within it are thought to be around 200 years old.

The forest is 4 hours out of Nairobi and just 40min out of Nanyuki so its a good location for a weekend even from the capital city. Road from the main road to the forest is about 30 minutes of murram so depending on your sense of adventure 2WD would make it in the dry season. This is a great stop over on your way to Samburu and the rest of Northern Kenya.
