Paradise Lost Kenya is a large parkland offering ancient caves, waterfall, boating lake. There is an ostrich farm as well as Pony and Carmel rides. The caves at Paradise Lost Kiambu Road were used as hiding places for Mau Mau freedom fighters as a hideout from the colonial masters.
Paradise Lost Kenya is one of the very few places close to Nairobi that offers a myriad of attractions and activities for the whole family. It is a beautiful oasis in the middle of a coffee farm close to Kiambu Town, about 10km from Nairobi. When you get there, you cannot help but wonder at the contrast between this hidden gem and the surrounding landscape.
Paradise Lost Kenya Activities
Perhaps the most popular attraction at Paradise Lost Kiambu Road is a labyrinth of caves. They are eroded by the waters of the nearby Gichi River. Their entrance screened by a spectacular waterfall. These caves are estimated to be 2.5 million years old, based on obsidian rock artefacts from the late stone age that were discovered inside. Artificial lighting has been installed a few meters into the caves up to a large cavern within.
Boat riding and fishing on the small lake at Paradise Lost are also popular activities. Weekends here are mostly visited by city dwellers.
Other available activities include feeding ostriches, horse riding, camel riding, bird watching. Leisure picnic on the grounds around the lake, camping, or taking a walk on the nature trail.
