One Day Tour Excursion To Oldonyo Sabuk National Park

Oldonyo Sabuk in Maasai language means large mountain and in Kamba  means Buffalo hill. It rises to 2, 145 meters and covers about 20 km square. When at the peak of this mountain you are able to enjoy the spectacular views of Mt. Kenya . Going to Oldonyo Sabuk was incredibly eye- opening experience as I came to appreciate the wonders of nature .I realised that it was just 1 km away from  the Fourteen Falls  which is across the Athi river, my fear of reaching to the peak was swamped by awe and wonder as I religiously followed m y fellow tourists till we got to the top. It was a memorable experience as I enjoyed its untamed beauty .

Location
Oldonyo Sabuk is in the North Eastern part of Nairobi county and is located in Machakos county next to Thika town, it’s approximately 85 km from the Nairobi City Centre that’s when you are using road as as a means of transport.
