Amazing view of the park at the top! We spotted a heard of elephants from the top. There is a spot at the peak that provides a shade to enjoy your lunch after a morning game drive too.

loved the walk up to the peak of the hills. Amazing views of nature. My kids were thrilled with the easy climb and they got to see a couple of animals from right up the hills.

Weather it´s your first, second or third time in Kenya you must not miss this adventure, going through the dried grass where first sight does not show much and suddenly being so close to the animals it´s a exciting experience... the views are so unique, but be prepared the Sun is extremely hot and make sure you pack extra suncream...

Its near-central location in Tsavo West yields a view in any direction you may have come or toward any park destination you may have charted. It truly adds a new dimension to... More
