Danger in the Karura forest 01 Oct 2009

Lifestyle

U.S. Embassy Nairobi wishes to alert the U.S. resident community in Nairobi to several recent, attacks/robberies by armed criminals on people walking or jogging in Karura Forest including several U.S. citizens.  The forest is located across United Nations Avenue from the Chancery, on the Limuru Road side of the United Nations complex.  The closest access road to the Chancery is off United Nations Avenue near the Savanna Restaurant.  Police are investigating and have increased patrols in the area.  However, the Embassy strongly recommends against going into Karura Forest, or traveling on the access road off United Nations Avenue, until the situation is resolved and rendered safe. Warden at the U.S. Embassy to the US resident community

The Karura Forest just gets better and better. It’s safe and close to where many of us live and work. It’s also been hosting a wide variety of events and users. Recreational walkers, cyclists, Hashers, birders, runners, families and dog walkers. With all this use needs to come cooperation and consideration.

​SAMOSA Festival 2012 Preview 13 Sep 2012

Lifestyle

When most people around the world hear the word “Samosa” their mouths begin to water. The drooling is no doubt a result of vivid fantasies of biting into a hot triangular flour pocket filled with shallow fried spicy beef. But the Samosa in “SAMOSA Festival” has so much more to do with the architecture and meaning of the food than the food itself.

East Africas Forests going, going, going and gone by when 24 Apr 2012

Lifestyle

The recently published East Africa Report 2012 makes grim reading, when it comes to the forests in the region, as over the past 20 years, between 1990 and 2010 more than 22 million hectares of forests were razed, for logging, through population encroachment and to make way for farming, the latter often shortlived, as the soil quality rapidly exhausts, then forcing yet more clearing of forest to squeeze out another 2 or 3 harvests before the deadly cycle continues.
