List of Breathtaking Waterfalls in Kenya

Besides Wildlife and scenic destinations, Kenya is home to beautiful Waterfalls. These natural attractions are located deep in forests and nature trails.

Although the most spectacular of them is the Karuru Falls, there are over 10 other beautiful waterfalls around the country. Tours to these waterfalls are becoming a popular experience. They provide an authentic connection with nature and the idyll rural life in Kenya.


The Aberdare forest trails are very remote and less explored. Save for hikers who frequent the ranges, finding waterfalls in the Aberdares is like chasing treasure from a secret map. There are no roads leading to most of these falls and locating them is an adventure.

For solo backpackers, locals are always helpful guides to the falls and will share a lot about the waterfalls. Also, several tour operators offer trips to these hidden gems with the help of local guides.
