Forest Camp, Kenya

You can find us just 30km from Nanyuki town, sitting on the foothills of Mt. Kenya and on the periphery of Ngare Ndare Forest (a UNESCO World Heritage site).

Outdoor Adventure At Your Doorstep

Ngare Ndare Forest camp is your base for breathtaking forest adventure activities, including rock climbing, canyoning and mountain biking. This is also where you will prepare and acclimatize for your mountain expeditions and hikes.

We have two large cabins and 5 large safari tents tucked away on the slopes of the valley, which can accommodate up to 100 people.

Within the camp grounds are a lounge space, a large indoor and outdoor dining area as well as a fireplace and bar. And yes, WIFI too!

You will also find a mountain biking skills course, archery grounds, walking trails, table tennis, darts and lots of space to wonder around.

Our camp also offers quick access to a large number of wonderful activities, including:

In line with our ecological values, we have committed to make our camp as eco friendly as possible. We run on solar power, use only reusable bottles (say not to #singleuseplastic), ride bicycles as often as possible, and buy local.

How incredible does this sound?


You can find us within close proximity to Ngare Ndare Forest, in Meru County, Kenya. Here we are on Google maps.

The camp is perfectly safe. We are located in a securely fenced in area that has its own access gate. Additionally, all RVA camps have 24-hour security guards as well as local security networks including armed rangers or police where necessary.

We can comfortably accommodate up to 80 people at any one time. We’re perfect for large groups!

As the Forest camp is one of our 2 headquarters, you are likely to meet our core team on site when you are here. Here are the amazing people who will make your stay unforgettable.

You truly feel like you are in the bush, our tent was hidden away in the trees, very private and the view over the valley and farm lands to Mount Kenya, was amazing! We saw a number of Stalks flying around and landing on their treetop nests.
