Stuck in the “Zoned areas” this Easter weekend? Don’t fret. You can still have some fun with your family and friends in and around Nairobi. Here are some ideas:

Adrenaline rush at the Forest

The Forest is situated in the heart of the Aberdares in the Kereita Forest Kimende town. About 50km from the CBD, The Forest promises the adrenaline seeker a good time. This Easter weekend, try some outdoor fun at their recreational facilities. Go ziplining for Ksh 2800 for 6 lines, Ksh 1750 for paintballing and Ksh 1500 for archery. Call  0711 11 22 33 to make reservations.

Easter Egg Hunt

Adventure farm Karen is hosting its annual Easter Eggstravaganza once again from 2nd-4th April. There are daily egg hunts (don’t forget your own baskets) from 9am-4pm. Book today. Call 0722309727. Slots are running out fast as they are only admitting a few families for each day in observance of COVID-19 regulations.

Family Easter Picnic

If the sun is out in Nairobi this weekend, pack your Easter egg chocolates and other snacks and go picnicking together as a family. It’s easy on the pocket and you can hide little treats for the kids to find. Check out these picnic sites across the city.

Trail Biking at Karura Forest  

You and the family can visit Karura Forest and hire sturdy multi-speed trail bikes to use on designated forest trails. For Ksh 500 per person and enjoy two hours of trail biking.  

Museum exhibition
