Highlights of Oldonyo Sabuk (Mt Kilimambogo) & Fourteen Falls: This is a great destination where one can spend a day hiking up the Mt Kilimambogo and later proceed to Fourteen falls

Oldonyo Sabuk is a rugged hump-backed outcrop of ancient rock jutting high above the Athi Plains and hazily visible from Nairobi. At 2,145m above sea level, Ol Donyo Sabuk is a densely forested mountain known to the local Kikuyu as 'The Mountain of the Buffalo', and to the Maasai as 'The Big Mountain'. Just one road leads to its summit, which offers magnificent 360' panoramas over the Athi River, the pineapple fields of Thika and the snow-capped peaks of both Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya. Within easy reach of Nairobi, the lush vegetation and cool air of this compact and scenic National Park make for an ideal day trip or camping weekend. After conquering the challenge, we will passby the famous Fourteen Falls before our return to Nairobi.
