Management of land in a manner that factors in geological and environmental factors Read more.

Lafarge Eco Systems manages Bamburi Cement’s reserve lands in a manner that factors in geological and environmental factors.

The company oversees the active and sustainable utilization of the reserve lands through development of bio-fuel tree plantations. The reserve land served three main purposes:

  • Active and sustainable utilization of Bamburi’s mining reserve land through bio-fuel tree plantations. This was started in 2006
  • Fuel-wood production for use in cement kilns, power generation plant, or commercial use. As part of Bamburi’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the wood from the biofuel initiative which is a carbon-neutral fuel, substitute part of the coal used at the cement production kilns, at a reduced cost.
  • Community integration through employment and income-generating activities for neighboring communities. This is through providing employment, seedling production by community nurseries; training in nursery management and food security through the shamba system projects. This is a form of agroforestry that allows the local communities to produce food crops on Bamburi reserve land while taking care of the vegetation.

Bamburi Forest Trails is located on the Mombasa – Malindi Road. It is open daily from 8:00am to 6:00pm daily.

The Bamburi Forest Trails was initially started as a one million tree project in 1986 where there was “barren” land i.e. land where mining had been done in stages but went only as far as 4 meters deep.

Bamburi Forest Trails provide an exciting outdoor venue for those looking for leisure, health or cool ambience options. These include:

  • 4 nature trails routes.
