The Equator Mark

The Equator passes through the southern tip of Nanyuki. One crosses it when approaching Nanyuki town from Nyeri side.

It is a popular spot for both locals and tourists, with local guides readily available to demonstrate the effect of the Coriolis force; with water swirling clockwise or anticlockwise between the northern and southern hemispheres. Though the effect of the Coriolis force is detectable only in a laboratory, the “demonstrations” at the Equator Mark are an exciting diversion.
