A Hike to Mau Mau Caves in Mt Kenya

This is a short hike to Historical Mau Mau Caves located in the foothills of Mt Kenya near Nanyuki. The Mau Mau caves have stood the test of time as a solemn reminder of one the British Colonial Empire’s bloodiest war, & most significant step near the independence in Kenya.

The epic caves used to be the storage and the hideout zones for the Mau freedom fighters during the Emergency period in 1952 -1960 before Kenya became an independent country. Today the caves have a variety of attractions such as the indigenous forest full of the Columbus monkey and a variety of birdlife.

    Stop At: Mau-Mau Cave, Kenya

    The Mau Mau caves at the foothills of Mt Kenya open out to a beautiful waterfall and pass-through rocks on the Burguret River. Once covered a dense forest these caves are well known for their historical significance.
    During Kenya's fight struggle for independence, the Mau Mau freedom fighters used these caves to store supplies as well as hideouts from the colonial forces led by the British and the collaborators.

    Getting there
    We will drive from Nairobi to Bantu Lodge near Nanyuki where our hike begins.
    The 9 KM trail begins at the Bantu Lodge and takes you through the wild bushes and relatively short indigenous trees teeming baboons, birds and other wildlife.

    When you get to the caves a swaying footbridge leads you to the shallow cave mostly made up of a large sheltered space.

    A short hike across takes you to the top of the waterfalls with magnificent views of the waterfalls.

    We shall return to the lodge again for lunch and relaxation before beginning our journey back to Nairobi.
