Located right between the Tsavo and Amboseli National Parks, the Chyulu Hills are often proclaimed to be among the youngest volcanic mountains in the world. Their black lava flow has helped shape them into a stunning sight in the backdrop of a plains game paradise. Birdlife here is prolific and the elephants have some of the largest tusks found in East Africa. Cheetah and lion are also sometimes found roaming the vast landscape which changes quite dramatically the further you move toward the views of the great Mount Kilimanjaro.
Due to poor rainfall in the area, it can be quite dry and game is less dense here than in many other areas in Kenya. This does not detract from the fact that it is still a remarkable place to be, and game can still be found without the traffic of the Mara. The animals live side by side with a healthy population of Maasai who still utilise the lands in their traditional ways. Jacada Travel has a great relationship with the lodges that offer unique experiences here and can highly recommend them as a cultural addition to your stay in Kenya.
