Deep in the Ngare Ndare forest, just north of Mount Kenya, is a tree platform leading to a suspended canopy walkway. Adventurous souls can camp on the tree platform, spending the night high up among the branches. As darkness sets in, the trick is to walk along the canopy until the trees give way to a million stars overhead. Standing there, hanging in mid air with giant galaxy overhead is an experience that’s difficult to top.
There are no facilities at the campsite, so you’ll want to bring all your food and water, as well as a torch or two to guide your night time walk. Also note that a decent 4x4 is needed to reach the campsite once you leave the main road leading from Nairobi to Nanuki.
