What to do at Manyatta Camp, Tsavo East National Park, Kenya Safaris

  • Mudanda Rock- The Mudanda Rock is a 1.6 km inselberg of stratified rock that acts as a water catchment that supplies a natural dam below. It offers an excellent vantage point for the hundreds of elephants and other wildlife that come to drink during the dry season. It is located at the plains between Manyani Gate and Voi. It is an excellent vantage point from which to survey the waters of the natural dam that lies at its foot and potently draws to it many hundreds of wallowing elephant, buffalo and other planes game. This area is a favorite leopard hunting ground, although daytime sightings are rare.
  • Kanderi Swamp- Kanderi swamp is close to the Voi gate and provides one of only two drinking areas in Tsavo East during the dry months. It therefore attracts large herds of buffalo and impala as well as yellow baboon and lion.
  • Aruba Dam- Aruba Dam was built in 1952 across the Voi River. The reservoir created by the dam attracts many animals and water birds. It is located in on the North of the Voi River. In the dry season, it is usually completely dry. The area usually attracts a lot of planes game such as gazelle and zebra. Today the dam is silted but very fertile, attracting many animals and bird life.
  • Lugard Falls– Lugard Falls, named after Frederick Lugard, is actually a series of white water rapids on the Galana River. Further into Tsavo east towards the sala gate you will find luggard falls cutting across Tsavo east. This is a great vantage point to see crocodiles, hippos and planes game coming to drink at the waters edge.
  • Mammals- Tsavo National Park is one of the world’s largest game reserves, providing undeveloped wilderness home to vast numbers of animals. Famous are the Tsavo lions, a population of lions, where the adult males often lack manes entirely. In total there are about 675 lions in the Amboseli-Tsavo ecosystem.
