The Seven Hills in Savuti

< Back

The Seven Hills of Savuti, collectively known as the Gubatsa Hills which means 'place where water can be dug in river sand', are no higher than 90 metres but given the flatness of the surrounding landscape are quite spectacular. They are of volcanic origin and are some 980 million years old. During the time of Lake Mababe, they were islands in the vast lake. Today, pebbled beaches created by the lake can still be seen at the base of the hills.
