Karura Forest in Kenya, the Workout Forest

Karura Forest inspiring visitors to workout in the forest


Karura Forest embodies Nairobi’s description as the ‘The Green City In The Sun’.

Situated within the vicinity of the city, 10 minutes drive from the city centre,  it brings forth a mesmerizing aura of fresh air, coolness and nature’s best gift to mankind. Karura Forest is the place you want to keep going back to due to its adorable nature and a friendly environment supporting outdoor activities.

Karura Forest has over the last few years angled itself as an outdoor workout hub, a trend that many now feel part of. Runners and joggers love this place which now has 15, 10 and 5 km trails where you can jog or take a nature walk.

The forest’s serenity has changed the narrative of the conventional gym centres to a rather open and a more enjoyable setting where jogging has become quite popular.

Yoga, pilates and personalized training have a huge space at Karura Forest.

There is an established 15 km biking trail in the forest with a challenging topography for a cyclist.

The colour-coded trails snake their way through steep hills, waterfalls, caves and streams and back to the green forested areas dotted by both indigenous and exotic trees towering high in the sky.

All said, if you are not a workout person, Karura Forest has you covered with enviable picnic sites and engaging leisure activities including touring caves within the forest and waterfalls.

It also a nice place for kids to play and immerse themselves in the joy of a green environment.
