Guide to a 3 Nights Air Safari to Chyulu Hills National Park to see the beauty of Kenya game attractions and hills structure


Chyulu Hills National Park is located next to Tsavo West National Park to the north-west.

The Chyulu Hills are one of the world's newest mountain ranges; the most recent volcanic peak was formed only 500 years ago.

A four-wheel drive track leads to Shaitani Peak from the Chyulu gate near Kilaguni Lodge and it is simple to walk to the caves on the side of the volcano.

It is a breathtaking landscape of rampant ferocity and the views of Kilimanjaro are unbeatable. At the other end of Tsavo West, in the south-west corner, lies Lake Jipe.

The hills hold no permanent surface water but rainfall percolating through the porus rock feeds many permanent fresh water sources in the surrounding plains, notably Mzima springs and the Tsavo and Galana rivers.

Bisected by the border with Tanzania; it is a favorite haunt of bird watchers and boats are available for ardent ornithologists. In the lake area is a small herd of Grevy's zebra, translocated from northern Kenya in 1977.

Animals commonly seen are buffalo, bushbuck, eland, elephant, African leopard, warthog, forest bush, reedbuck, Steinbok and many more.

Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge

:Ol Donyo Wuas is situated on the slopes of the Chyulu Hills, with exclusive access to a quarter of a million acres of one of the few remaining wilderness areas of East Africa.

The open plains rolling Chyulu Hills and snow caped peak of Kilimanjaro invoke images of Africa as it was in the earlier part of the last century; wildlife and Maasai herdsmen living as nature determined they should in this unspoilt corner of Kenya.

Ol Donyo Wuas in Maasai means "The spotted Hills" and is the name given by the Maasai to the Chyulu Range which runs between Amboseli and Tsavo National Parks.
