this attraction site is on the Garissa road. It is an awesome site where one can view the 14 falls and divers on the site.

It was the first time to visit the place and had so much expectation. It is a fairly good place if you have company. However there are a few buts. the water stinks and its polluted. And the tour guides, they us charged 4500. Jeez!
