The Waterfalls Of Kenya

- Advertisement -

Kenya is famous from many of its appealing natural reserves. The Waterfalls Of Kenya. Tourists have come into the country from far and wide for a glimpse at these extravagant sights. Over and over the same regions have been advertised and have been promoted far above others. A good example is that of Thompson Falls found in Nyahururu. Undoubtedly this waterfall has more historical and cultural appeal not to mention its size and power. However there is so much more to discover off the beaten paths. There are small wonders to behold in the heart of the country.

Case in point the Limuru Falls that flows against a milieu of thick green vegetation, one can actually secure a position above the fall and watch as it sneaks its way through the greenery before it breaks out through the cliff that is fenced by the bushes. Chania falls on the other hand isn’t as accessible as the latter but it is just as breathtaking. It is also a catchment area and provides water for a large portion of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city. Unfortunately such regions are facing the danger of drying up leading to nation wide shortages of water supply and electricity. Gura falls stands at 1000 feet in height across the valley from Karuru falls. They are similar to each other in that they are three tiered; meaning that they have more than one vertical leap as they flow into their deposit bowls. They seat across each other flourishing amidst the greenery of the Aberdare forest. Kenya’s longest river the Tana River flows from this forest and slithers across the nation for 708 kilometers before it finally deposits its waters into the Indian Ocean. Along the way it snakes into the Koru National Park where it ruptures into the Adamson’s falls. George Adamson in his time had been nicknamed Baba ya Simba by the locals. Directly translated this means: father of lions. This was because he had raised the lioness Elsa from when it was a cub. His legacy lives on in the waters of the waterfall. The Galana River which is the second longest river in the realm runs for 390 kilometers as a result of the combination of the Athi River and the Tsavo River. The fourteen falls feature prominently on Athi River. Its name fundamentally defines it. It constitutes fourteen consecutive falls cascading over jagged cliffs, in a manner that is savage yet romantic. In the western province of Kenya the River Nzoia has given the people of Bungoma the gift of the Webuye Falls which attracts tourists and helps to power the various industries that have been established. The river then proceeds to find its way to Lake Victoria and has attributed to the good agricultural yield of the region. Away from these regions that expect a reliable rainfall and has good vegetative cover lies Marsabit; a town in the Eastern semi arid quarters of the nation. There in lies Mount Marsabit whose base is scorched and dry but as you go higher up the crater mountain the vegetative landscape morphs into a forest wonderland punctuated with giant tress swamps and a crater lake that is a wonder to behold. The natives have named this oasis the place of cold; it is truly a depiction of paradise.
