They announce on the website only that the entrance fee is 300ksh, but when you're there you find out, that zhey charge 200ksh for the waterfall and 200ksh for the caves extra. I rather go to kaurura forest. Its cheaper and more for the money.

This is an amzaing place outside Nairobi in the deep greenery of Kiambu. We totally enjoyed everything about Paradise Lost. First of all, it was a weekday when we visited and the place was a huge ranch of peace and quiet. It is very well maintained with cleanliness of the highest level. Going from one place to another within this... More

This paradise is lost. Don't go. If you want some green tranquility whilst in Nairobi go to Karura Forest. PL is overpriced to get in if non-local and then have to pay more to see the one site - a waterfall and cave - there are some skinny horses but this isn't a place to trek, a small bar but... More

This is basically a picnic spot with a few activities (ambling on a horse or camel, punting a raft around) and while glad to see it is popular (it was heaving with people), there is not much to do except see the caves, for which you have to pay extra for maybe 10 minutes' interest. In the distance, views of... More

This is a great little place to go for an afternoon that's pretty out of the way as far as tourists are concerned. They have camel and horse riding, fishing, caves, waterfalls, and a gorgeous site for a picnic. The entrance fee is quite cheap (something like 10USD for non residents) and the place is well kept. I'd recommend spending... More

Nice place for a having a day of moderate nature activities. Good for picnic, the view of waterfall inside the park and then the lake at the down stream was great. Its less than a hour driving from Nairobi and bring your picnic basket. The weather was nice and we enjoyed the green atmosphere, bird watching and hanging around.

This year I've visited Paradise Lost 4 times and each time I've gone with a different group of friends. We always find lots to do from riding the horses and camels, selfies in the cave and the waterfall, cool hike trails and the waterfront is serene as well. Its ideal for families with kids of all ages especially for a... More

Had a lovely time here, nice picnic area and the waterfalls were lovely to see. Was a bit shock to see you had to pay to have a picnic etc... because in the UK most places for a picnic is free. However I didn't care because it was lovely and it made a change having to protect my food from... More
