Hike Summary

Zania Falls is located at the foot of Makanga Valley in Zaina Forest in the central highlands of Kenya in Nyeri county. It is one of the most epic natural scenery and tourist attraction in the county. This hidden treasure sandwiched between two ranges along the Zania River Valley and can only be unveiled by trekking through the indigenous Zaina Forest. The forest is also part of the expansive Aberdare ranges.
