Ngong Road Forest Association
About The Ngong Road Forest
Situated in the outskirts of Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi. This remarkable geographical location gives the forest a unique role in Nairobi and Kenya.
The Forest covers an area of 1,224 Ha and is managed by the Kenya Forest Service and the Ngong Road Forest Association, a Community Forest Association formed under the Forest Act of 2005.
It is divided by the Ngong Road into two main sections, the Miotoni Section to the North West and the Racecourse and Kibera section to the South East. These sections in turn are divided by the Southern Bypass, which is currently under construction.
