probaly because it is not so wellknown yet. It is a very nice place to go for birdwalks. Be sure to take a guide with you, he'll see much more because he knows the place. Ask around for Mr. Ngala.

The park has a number of wild herbivores including giraffes, water buck, & onyx. It is also a great place for birders and a... More

The tortoises, lovely old creatures....'mzee kobe' in swahili. A perfect family outing on Saturday afternoon. I enjoyed taking a walk and having a good time with the good old tortoises browsing on the lush green vegetation at Nguuni, on your way to Kiembeni Estate, Bamburi.

Any place where you can sit and have a one hour long conversation with a giant turtle is more than all right by me! Feeding giraffes also a high point. !
