Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park, situated about 65 kilometers northeast of Nairobi, is centered around the imposing Ol Donyo Sabuk Mountain, also known as “Mount Kilimambogo.” The park covers an area of 20 square kilometers and rises to a height of 2,145 meters, offering spectacular views of the surrounding landscapes, including the Athi River and the expansive plains. The park is predominantly forested and provides a haven for wildlife such as buffalos, bushbucks, baboons, and colobus monkeys. Birdlife is also abundant, with species like the Augur buzzard and Verreaux’s eagle often spotted.

Visitors to Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park can hike to the mountain’s summit, enjoying the lush forest and diverse wildlife along the way. The park is also historically significant, with the grave of Sir William Northrup McMillan, an early settler, located near the park entrance. Activities include picnicking, bird watching, and game viewing. The park’s relatively small size and peaceful environment make it an ideal destination for day trips from Nairobi, offering a quick escape into nature with rewarding views and wildlife encounters.
