ABOUT OL DONYO SABUK.
Ol Donyo Sabuk is a mountain and an adjacent small town near Thika central Kenya. The town is located in Kyanzavi Division, Machakos County The peak, height 2145m, was named by Maasai pastoralists, meaning big mountain. The Kikuyu name, Kilimambogo, means Buffalo Hill or Mountain. Buffalo is called Nyati or "Mbogo" in Swahili,. The town stands at the border between Machakos County and Kiambu County. Lord Macmillan was the first white man to settle here, and everything else that has happened since is largely attributed to him . The town is quite dusty, due to deforestation and loose ground cover, compounded by occasional rainfall. However, the area is adorned with lots of untamed beauty.
