Welcome to Wajee Nature Park!

Wajee Nature Park is a bird conservancy and nature park located in Mukuruwe-ini in Central Kenya. It is set amidst the spectacular country between Mt. Kenya ant the Aberdares and lies 160 Km north of Nairobi. The camp which covers 10 hectares of unspoilt natural forest was set aside for conservation by the late Reverend Wajee. It is home to two rare species: the Hindes Babbler and the side-striped jackal.

It is an indication of how one's personal efforts and interest in nature conservation can make meaningful difference and a positive impact in the society and conservation circles.

For many years the park was a privately owned entity by Jagi Gakunju (CEO, AAR) who inherited the piece of land from his father, who also had a passion in nature conservation. Presently, the park is partly managed by the Wildlife Clubs of Kenya (WCK).

Wajee Nature Park is adorned with an array of flora and fauna. It is perfect for bird lovers, as it is home to many rare forest birds. An incredible 126 local species have been recorded in the park so you can expect to spot quite a few bird species during a visit. The availability of different tree species provides a home and breeding ground for many birds.
