Chyulu Hills

Information

A northwestern extension of the adjacent Tsavo West Naitonal Park, this 286 mi² (741 km²) park is primarily known for its geological novelty and the recency of the park’s volcanic dormancy. Signs of volcanic activity include volcanic cones, craters and the Leviathan, one of the world’s longest lava tubes. The scenery within is complemented by incredible views of Mt. Kilimanjaro in the distance.

 

The park offers some wildlife viewing experiences, including eland, elephant, bushbuck, buffalo, wildebeest and even leopard. Cultural experiences are offered with the Maasai, who oversee the western portion of the park.
