Safari Highlights

Ngutuni Wildlife Sanctuary is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts located in the heart of Tsavo East National Park in Kenya. This sanctuary spans over 10,000 acres and offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the beauty and diversity of African wildlife in a pristine and natural setting.

Established in the late 1960s, Ngutuni Wildlife Sanctuary was created as a buffer zone between the local community and the vast expanse of Tsavo East National Park. The sanctuary is known for its lush vegetation, sprawling savannahs, and dense acacia forests, providing a perfect habitat for a wide variety of animal species.

One of the highlights of Ngutuni Wildlife Sanctuary is its thriving population of elephants. Visitors can witness these majestic creatures roaming freely in their natural habitat, often seen bathing in the waterholes or grazing on the grasslands. Apart from elephants, the sanctuary is also home to other iconic African animals such as lions, leopards, giraffes, zebras, buffaloes, and a plethora of bird species.

Taita Saltlick, nestled in the heart of Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary in Kenya, is a remarkable destination offering a unique wildlife viewing experience. Situated amidst the lush greenery and diverse landscapes of the sanctuary, Taita Saltlick is renowned for its exceptional concentration of wildlife drawn to its mineral-rich waters.

The name “saltlick” originates from the natural salt deposits found in the area, which are irresistible to a variety of animals seeking essential minerals. This phenomenon creates an extraordinary spectacle as numerous species gather around the saltlick, providing visitors with unparalleled opportunities for wildlife observation and photography.

Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary itself is part of the larger Tsavo West National Park, forming a crucial corridor for wildlife migration between Tsavo East and Tsavo West.
