Special thanks to Titus, the ranger who welcomed the press group and presented us the natural reserve! more »
This place is very relaxing as guests get out of the vehicle and take an escorted walking safari around the nature.
It's located in the west of Tsavo National Park and it's around 48km from mtito andei. Has clear waters and it's a popular spot with crocodiles and hippos to see.. There's also an underground viewpoint where you can watch the fish swim under water.
