Menengai Crater
Menengai Crater is a large Caldera formed by millions of years of volcanic activities. The highest point, at some 2,300 m above sea level, has a sign post erected by the rotary club that shows the directions and distances to several places in the world.

Legend has it that the Menengai Crater is home to many demons and ghosts and so the crater is referred to as Kirima kis ngoma "the place of devils". Since the 19th C, it has been the scene for battles.

A lovely little Tented Camp "Maili Saba" has been set up in 2006 with breathtaking views over the Crater.
