Nzambani Rock, also known locally as Ivia ya Nzambani, is a 600-foot-tall stone outcrop (183 meters above the ground). The rock is located at Nzambani market, about 8 kilometers from Kitui town on the rough Kitui-Mutitu road. Kitui County's main tourist attraction is Nzambani Rock. A metallic staircase has been built to allow visitors to reach the top. For the safety of children and others who are afraid of heights, the staircase is fenced. The rock is particularly well-known for the myths that surround it. Anyone who goes around the rock seven times is said to transform into a member of the opposite sex.
