2 Days Tsavo East - Taita Game Sanctuary Safari
TAITA GAME SANCTURAY HIGHIGHTS
This is a private game sanctuary separated from the vast Tsavo west only by a road. Animals roam freely between the two areas and in the hills, that dot this sanctuary. The Hills are home to a wide variety of game including Lion, cheetah, elephant and plains game. Bird life includes the extremely rare Taita Falcon, a bird recorded in early Egyptian hieroglyphics. This region is more remote than 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. The Sanctuary, established in 1972 covers a protected area of 28,000 acres (approximately 110 sq. kms or 44 sq. miles) rising to an altitude of 1,200 meters above sea level (3,600 ft.). It consists mainly of plains and woodlands, with typical riverbank vegetation along the water course.
