Farmers Market
“A surprising little oasis of natural forest in the middle of the city. There are hundreds of trees and birds, and tame Sykes’ monkeys that will even come and sit on your shoulder. The park is run by a conservation organisation called Nature Kenya, which offers guided tours and bird walks that I like to join. Next door to the park is Kenya’s biggest vegetable market, filled with produce from every corner of the country.

These new trees that were being tried out for forestry were gazetted as a national reserve in 1932 hence becoming an arboretum "a living collection of trees". The Arboretum has over 300 species of trees that are home to hundreds of birds, insects and small mammals in 30 hectares of land.”
