Hike Summary

Makueni County is a land of contrast. Away from the dry land associated with southeastern Kenya, this is truly the beautiful green gem of that region. With hills and rivers flowing through, this area around Salama is visibly green.
The Kenze Circuit lies on the verdant hills of Kilome. The hills are linked by a tarmac off Salama on Mombasa road and our trail starts off at Mukaa. The trek goes down to the surrounding inhabited hills before running into a lush green temporary river line with huge, interesting rock formations, rock pools, and scenery dots. The trail then picks up into once forested bushland and goes through 3 small rounded summits. The trail then falls on the opposite and ends on a gradual uphill road stretch back to the starting point.
To avoid the road construction on Mombasa road, we will use the more scenic Makueni route.
