Wundanyi

Wundanyi[1] is a town lying in the Taita Hills of southern Kenya, about 20 km west of Voi and about 4 km northeast of Ngerenyi. It is also the administrative centre for Taita-Taveta County. The town has a population of 4055 (1999 census).[2] Wundanyi is the centre of an agricultural area and the surrounding slopes are highly terraced.[3]

The town is a popular base for hiking, while local attractions include the Ngangao Forest, known for its butterflies, Wesu Rock and the Cave of Skulls.[3] Shomoto Hill, across the valley from Wundanyi was the formal place of execution for the Taita.[4]
