Taita Hills Game Sanctuary
The Taita Hills is a private game sanctuary separated from
the vast Tsavo West National Park by a road. Taita Hills Game
Sanctuary consists mainly of plains and woodlands, with typical
riverbank vegetation along the water course and is home to over
50 species of mammals and 300 species of birds.
Taita Hills Game Sanctuary region is more remote than the most
of the other visited parks and reserves in Kenya , the perfect
destination for anyone looking for an opportunity to get away
from it all and relax in the wild.
A variety of short excursions can be made from the Sanctuary.
Towards the Tanzania border lie Lakes Jipe and Chala, the
former, home of many water birds, while Lake Chala is the
deepest crater lake in Africa.
The nearby Kaisugu Hills were the battle ground of the German
forces and the British Army led by General Smuts in the 1914/18
war, and it is here that the formidable Lord Grogan (famous for
his walk from Cape to Cairo for the love of a lady) built his
home which is locally known as Groganís Castle.
