Chyulu Hills National Park Activities

Nestled at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro in Kenya and tucked away between Tsavo West National Park and Amboseli National Park, sits the Chyulu Hills with vast rolling hills of endless green, great blue skies and breathtaking views of landscape. The area is home to Kenya’s largest population of African elephants and the critically endangered black rhino. Other wildlife that can be found include leopards (although difficult to find), some plains game (ie buffalo, bushbucks, elands), giant forest hogs, bush pigs and hundreds of bird species. While the focus is definitely the spectacular scenery many activities are available when staying at one of the private conservancies that border the National Park. Traverse the terrain in open vehicle safari vehicles as you search for wildlife. Explore the area on foot as you get closer to nature on a bush walk. Your safari guide will identify tracks, highlight interesting insects, talk about fascinating plants and discuss the ecosystem in general. A mountain bike safari is a fabulous combination of up-close immersion in the bush and the ability to cover more ground. Unrestricted by roads and vehicles, on horseback you will forge your path through the varied landscapes while taking in the awe-inspiring natural beauty of the area. Note activities may vary between lodge accommodation and concessions.
