The Kereita Forest Kenya.
It`s Ironic how you feel most alive when your heart skips a few beats. It`s even more ironic when this becomes an addiction. Well, am addicted and the only rehab or therapy is adrenaline burn through my big veins. It was a month or so since I got my remedy, so you can imagine the thirst that was in my veins for the rush. Kereita Forest Kenya was going to douse this addiction at least for another month or so.
We were meeting at Nairobi`s Central Business district (CBD) at 8:00 Am, this is the ideal time if you intend to do all the activities at the Kereita Forest Kenya. I was punctual since I was looking forward to this enchanting day.
Now without much ado let`s delve in and see what The Kereita Forest Kenya has to offer.
The Activities at Kereita Forest Kenya.
Here are the 7 Interesting Activities at the Forest.
1.) Ziplining at The Kereita Forest Kenya.
This is the main event here and it was going to be my therapy and I could feel thrush of blood starting to rush through my veins as I signed for the indemnity forms just in case.
After the signing I proceeded to the demo, this is where you are shown how to do Ziplining.
Just tuck your legs or is it knees up and let loose, listen to the whistling of the zipline as you fly away just like a real pro.
The demo for safety precaution took about 30Minutes and everyone was well versed on what to do to swing smoothly and what not to do to avoid unnecessary stack in between the zipline.
Please note this is more than 2 Kilometers long, the longest zipline in East and Central Africa.
They say ladies first, so we let of go ladies despite the screaming and shaking, they seemed to enjoy every moment of it.
“Please make sure you take a clear pic”. They would say so as to flaunt to their friends on Instagram, Ladies? Anyway, I let you be.
So, I was just smiling and could not conceal my happiness. Shit is about to happen.
The Andrenaline is Engrossing.
It`s my turn now, my spirit brightened, happiness had stroked through like a comet and my veins started to fill up and my heart started to miss the beats just the way I like.
The instructor noticed I was in my world, he tapped my shoulder and reminded me, to tuck my knees up, let loose and use my right hand strapped in a leather glove to break.
If I felt like I was “over speeding” and more importantly to start slowing when I was about to land to the other end.
Bring it, man, let`s go, off I was released, please note I was not afraid, I have never had fear of heights or anything of the kind.
The anticipation in me for anything driving and lifting my adrenaline from comfort does it for me any time. I said in the beginning this is a pure addiction and the only therapy is me, having such moments so you understand the rush.
For the unknown reason we had left the camera in the car, how could we forget? We had no choice other than to record this on our shitty camera Phones since there was no time.
While in the middle I happened to look down, please don`t do this if you are acrophobic. It may just turn things from adventure to danger.
However, this accelerated my therapy, it was exhilarating to the core watching my shade, fly over the forest at around 80 Kilometres Per Hour.
Before I knew it I was already on the other end, I landed safely since I followed the instructions from the instructor and I did not get stuck in between like many of my counterparts did.
I felt accomplished, my adrenaline was pumped and couldn`t ask for more other than when am I jumping off a flying plane?
Tip: Please book in advance to avoid Delay

The hook is at the incredible corners and the engrossing bike jumps. Though I did not take this activity some of my friends did and they enjoyed every moment of it.
4.) Archery at Kereita Forest Kenya.
This was another one, how can I miss the bull’s eye? I did not believe my eyes when I missed it the first time.
I took my second shot. Back in my village, Manza B. I was the star kid, our eye bull used to be a banana trunk or Cactus stem and I never used to miss it.
Even from the furthest point, everybody in my village used to think that I would someday become the best shooter and break records.
