This enchanting walk in the forest will leave you mesmerized and you will only desire to remain here for more stay, starring at the beauty of this forest, connecting directly with nature
Itinerary & Description
We start off at Gura Forest office, the mighty Gura River less than 30 meters from the office can be heard heading down to join others into Tana River.
We follow cattle and fisherman trails into these scenic flood plains. This is Gura special
After a 13 km riverine walk the river branches into Gura 1 and 2 we follow Gura 2 up following the elephants foots steps.. This section is the only steep section of trail and also a bit treacherous but the thunder of the fall keeps calling we must push on…
False thunder from small cascades will keep us encouraged… Because when you finally set your eyes on this fall… Everything will dissolve… Only a smile and may be your arms will open effortlessly and hug the waterfall…
There is a platform where you can view fall from a distance… The courageous will soldier on to the foot and watch a spectacle like no other.
After a good take in of this beautiful environment it’s time to head down back to the trail head.
We will cross the river endless times… Prepare to get wet or decide to wear the gumboots instead
Please Join us for an indelible experience.
