This is an incredible patch of indigenous forest located in leafy Karen, a short drive from the city centre. There’s a nature trail, and it’s home to an array of tree and plant species, and a few different species of monkey. There’s also a crowned eagle’s nest, which is thrilling to spot, and the forest is lovely for a picnic. At the entrance to the forest there’s the Institute of Primate Research, which is worth the small entry fee. The Karen Blixen Museum, the original home of famous Karen Blixen, who wrote the book Out of Africa, is also nearby if you want to get an understanding of Nairobi’s history.

“"Ngong" means "knuckles" in Maasai, a fitting name since these beautiful pointed green hills resemble the back of a fist facing the sky. They are a popular place to visit close to Nairobi and provide a welcome respite from the city heat. The hills are the peaks of a ridge overlooking the Great Rift Valley and many white settlers established their farms here in the early colonial days. Half-timbered houses and flowering gardens remain but seem more suited to southern England than Africa. Several walking trails traverse the hills offering beautiful views of the valleys below. Wildlife is also visible in the area. Buffalo, gazelles, giraffes, bushbuck, the occasional klipspringer and troupes of baboons are often glimpsed grazing along the roadside. For Out of Africa fans, the grave of Denys Finch Hatton, the lover of famous Danish author, Karen Blixen, lies on the eastern slopes, graced by an obelisk and garden.”
