ngare ndare 2 days 1 night camping edition
Ngare Ndare is a lush indigenous forest at the foothills of Mt. Kenya. Azure pools glisten at the bottom of waterfalls and 200 year old trees stretch into the canopy supporting a rich variety of bird and animal life. The forest is a vital corridor that links the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to Mount Kenya, and one which elephants have been using for centuries.
The Forest belongs to UNESCO Heritage List, Ngare Ndare Forest, a hidden gem in Kenya. Visited mainly by locals and residents who know about its existence, the Forest is known for its azure waterfall and rock pools, walking above the trees' canopy and the presence of many elephants. The lush greenery spreads between the high twisted trees covered in moss. The sun makes its way through the hanging branches (100% sure that Tarzan lives somewhere here and swings on the vines!), and hundreds of butterflies flutter around as you walk past. Ngare Ndare Forest lays on the border of two of Northern Kenya's counties - Laikipia and Meru, and on the border of two conservancies - Lewa and Borana. Its location provides a chance to explore the nearby areas without much effort.
The walk from the campsite to the waterfall is an moderate one hour trek through the beautiful forest. You pass through some seriously amazing paths where orange dust makes its way amongst the old gnarly trees. Their canopies create a natural umbrella that gently covers the sky, which gives you some pleasant shade. Once you get down a pretty steep set of handmade wooden steps on the last bit of your walk, you reach the waterfall. There you find yourself looking at about a 15 meter high cliff with the water flowing down to a pale blue rock pool. All of this surrounded by large trees hugging the pool. You're welcome to jump in and enjoy a refreshing bath but be ware that you may have experience ‘body freeze’ (like ‘brain freeze’ but just to your whole body) straight away! The water is sooooo cold as it source from a mountain spring near Mt Kenya. If you're lucky, you may spot some elephants around.
