Machakos is a county found in the eastern part of Kenya bordering Kajiado, Kiambu, Kitui and Makueni counties. It has a lot of beautiful sceneries and places worth to make your holiday; some of which are mentioned below.
- Kituluni Hill
On this hill you can camp, hike or simply do a picnic. For residents and even prepared non-residents, the hill is a right place for physical exercises (keeping fit). It also has a beautiful view where water appears to be flowing against gravity.
- Masinga dam
Did you know that Masinga dam was found in Machakos? Have you ever wished to catch a glimpse of how that electricity skillfully gets extracted from water? You better visit Macha; and I assure you it will be a learning experience you won’t forget.
- Donyo Sabuk National Park
This national park commonly referred to as ‘The mountain of the buffalo’ (Since its mountainous in nature) is forested with many wild animals inside. The sight of animals drinking water, feeding and simply co-existing in the park is a really awesome one.
- Machakos stadium
This stadium often holds games, sports and other activities. You are likely to find ongoing events, so if you are a field person and you happen to be in Machakos, just head to the Stadium.
An added advantage is that Machakos is close to Nairobi so the transport cost that will be incurred for those around Nairobi will be relatively cheap. Pay Machakos a visit and it will be worthwhile.
