I might have missed this, but got some of my best photos here. Beware the monkeys, they can be aggressive.

The springs are in such a beautiful area, we visited during our visit to Tsavo West. Because of crocodiles, however nothing to be afraid of. There are clearly marked walking paths around the springs. This are fed from the Chulu hills nearby
