Ndunda Falls Mudathon & Trail Run
Ready for an adrenaline challenge that will be taking you through different ranged obstacles? The Mudathon event is here to challenge your comfort zones by taking you through a tough trail challenge, forest runs, and more at Camp Ndunda in Embu.
Camp Ndunda Falls is located in a serene forest barely 20 minutes drive past Embu Town. The camp is blessed to have two rivers, River Kie and Rupingazi crossing through the forest. The camp is at the edge of the Njukiri forest that stretches from Embu across the borders to the neighboring Kirinyaga County. The forest provides a beautiful natural setting for the perfect trail run and mudathon challenge.

In the Ndunda jungle is a chain securely tied on a branch several meters high with the river flowing below. You have a comfortable sitting area to give you enough confidence to enjoy a wild swing across!
This precarious suspension above the river is the perfect way to test your fear of heights (acrophobia). Will you look down while doing it? It’s free of charge.
Enjoy the natural trails of the forest on your saddle.
Our 250m zipline gives you the perfect adrenaline rush for the day. You are a conqueror!
Step off the edge and dive into the waterfall and experience the upthrust from the river!
Test your huntsman skills on this archery yard set in the forest.
