Keera Caves

Keera Caves 1

4 Kilometers from Nyamira Town is a site whose rich history continues to draw visitors in by their numbers. A few meters from the Keera waterfalls is a cave where rainmakers once gathered to make their sacrifices. Visitors gather to watch the waters cascade, even after all these years it is still fascinating, and the myths surrounding Keera falls only serve to pique their interest further. In the past residents of Nyamira often brought bundles of firewood here to appease a creature they had heard of in stories told by their grandparents. Under the waterfall is a site where traditional rites were performed. Whenever there was drought, old men would perform a traditional dance at the site and carry bundles of firewood into the cave. This, they believed, would lead to rain.
