The Chyulu Hills National Park is a rugged wilderness dominated by ancient volcanoes, lava caves and verdant rolling hills set against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and tucked in between Amboseli National Park and Tsavo West National Park acting as a natural boundary that separates the Amboseli and Tsavo eco-systems. With its surrounding woodlands and higher elevation mist forests, this is not only home to an abundant species of free-roaming wildlife but also the spiritual grounds of the semi-nomadic pastoralists Maasai people.
Why Chyulu Hills National Park?
The Chyulu Hills is a vital green corridor for wildlife in the Tsavo National Parks and Amboseli National Park. Described by Ernest Hemingway as the "Green Hills of Africa", this is a unique setting home to a diverse array of wildlife that includes strong herds of free-roaming elephants, giraffes, zebras, black rhinos, impala and predators such as lions and leopards. Not typically-renowned as a big game destination, the Chyulu Hills offers a remote and untouched landscape for travelers in search of a surreal sense of isolation.
