Karura in the Media

Karura on the Air and in the Press

Nowadays, Karura Forest is in the media for all the good reasons: it is a place of rest and relaxation, a green haven and key component to a healthy Nairobi environment. It is also a superb example of how land-grabbing, corruption and uncontrolled development can be kept at bay by a concerned and active citizenry.
