Sprawled over the youngest mountain range in the world, the
Chyulu Hills National Park combines breathtaking volcanic
scenery with rich wildlife. Extensive forests cover conical
mountains, creating thrilling caves for underground exploration.
The snow-covered peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro are clearly visible
from the crest of the Chyulu Hills, rising in the distance
beyond spectacular views over rolling plains of fertile volcanic
soil. A subterranean river pushes above ground in fresh water
springs on the surrounding plains.
The thick forests shelter black rhino, while lion and cheetah
can be seen on the plains and leopard inhabit the rocky heights.
Buffalo, elephant, eland, bushbuck, warthog, wildebeest and
zebra can all the spotted. Located in the south-west of the
Park, Lake Jipe is a birding enthusiastís paradise.
The hills hold no permanent surface water but rainfall
percolating through the porous rock feeds many permanent fresh
water sources in the surrounding plains, notably Mzima springs
and the Tsavo and Galana rivers.
