A place in one of the surrounding hills is famous “Kyamwilu” It is located on Kaloleni Hill, 12 kms from Machakos town. It is here that vehicles and water defy Isaac Newton’s law of gravity to do reverse. You pour water on a marked part of the slope and instead of it flowing downwards; it climbs up with admirable ease. It is also on this hill that when you switch off your car engine and free the gears your vehicle climbs up the hill instead of rolling downwards!
The people’s park in Machakos town is also one of the recreation centers for weekend getaways for the whole family. There are plenty of exciting activities for kids and adults like water fountains, children’s play area, miniature golf, solar exhibition stand, conference facilities and sailing boats.
The ol Donyo sabuk national park is located about 85km North East of Nairobi in Machakos. It has a mountain covered with forest and buffaloes are the dominant animals in the ecosystem. The park is also a home to bird species like bronze sunbird, grey tit, ring-necked dove and others.
For those who love silence, the Machakos Sports club with its nine-hole golf course will be a good option.
Another site to visit in Machakos is a sacred tree with ‘breasts’ and a mythical hill that will change your sex if you go round it seven times.
