Background


The Ngong Forest is the only indigenous forest in the world that is located right within the confines of a capital city. In an unusual and dynamic move on the part of the Kenyan Government, an area of 600 hectares of this urban forest has been entrusted to the management of a private charitable trust - the Ngong Forest Sanctuary Trust.
 

Getting There


The Ngong Forest Sanctuary lies just 6km from Nairobi city centre on the doorstep of four million residents.
 

Key Attractions


Ngong ForestWith donor funding from the European Community the Trust is in the process of fencing the 600 hectares to protect this indigenous forest from ongoing unsustainable degradation and to transform a vulnerable, under-utilised forest into a secure amenity that all Kenyans and visitors to Nairobi can enjoy.

As one of the last tracts of indigenous forest and a green belt within the city of Nairobi, it is a wonderful natural resource that the Ngong Forest Sancturay Trust hope to turn into a social, educational and economic asset to the surrounding communities.

Nairobi plays host to 605 different species of birds, which is more bird species within the boundaries of a capital city than any other in the world. 190 of them can be found in the Ngong Forest Sanctuary, along with 35 species of mammals and 208 species of indigenous trees and plants which together create a stunning sanctuary in the heart of Nairobi.

The walks take tour groups through the forest or around the dam that attracts large numbers of birds and even leopards have been spotted there. The Ngong Forest Sanctuary Walks are held every Tuesday and Thursday in the morning and afternoon and last about two hours. Guided by a qualified naturalist and accompanied by a security guard, walkers will learn all about the forest's history, its indigenous plants and trees and its amazing bird and animal life.

 

History


The very first Ngong Forest Sanctuary Walk was launched in 1991 offering visitors to Kenya the chance to enjoy one of Nairobi's most beautiful visitor attractions.
