Fourteen Falls

Fourteen Falls

Sample the best that nature provides! Fourteen Falls are located around 65 Km from Nairobi and less than 15 Km from Thika Town along the Thika-Garissa Highway. The falls overlooks the famous Kilimambogo Hill that is visible from all the areas along the Thika Super Highway.
The Falls are near the border between Thika and Machakos Districts. The name originates from the 14 successive falls filled with thousands of litres of water that make up the Athi River. The fast flowing water pounds more than 25 meters into the large pool at the base of the fall. The loud thundering sound is heard kilometers away which makes the experience unforgettable. Fourteen Falls is surrounded by a beautiful scenery of plants and vegetation. The flora is out of this world which makes the place a darling to hundreds of tourists each year. Coupled with bird watching, boat expeditions and photography then the place becomes a candidate for fun and adventure. The scenery is wonderful for group expeditions, team building and the occasional romantic getaway. Overlooking the falls lies the Hill of the Buffaloes popularly known as Kilimambogo. The Hill derives its name from the hundreds of Buffaloes that lived and are still found in the area. The Hills are also home to the graves of the family of Sir Macmillan. Sir Macmillan was a famous philanthropist who lived on the foot of the Hills. He made the Hills internationally known when he hosted the former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and US President Roosevelt. The Hills are home to buffaloes, baboon, zebras and other wild animals.
