Located north of central Nairobi, Karura Forest (the biggest urban forest in Kenya) boasts of diverse tree and plant species, some indigenous, as well as variant wild animals. Dik diks dart across your path as the monkeys rattle the trees above. Colorful butterflies brighten the Karura Forest ecosystem at the butterfly lake and basically everywhere else within the forest. Lily lake, the Mau Mau caves and the waterfall on Karura River also add to the wholesome beauty. There are well marked cycling trails within the forest with easy and challenging sections which are suitable for just about any cyclist. And when the ride is all over, you can grab a cup of coffee or brunch at Karura Forest River Café. This is your ideal half-day cycling trip in Nairobi.
