National Park – 741 sq km – Managed by Kenya Wildlife Services
Chyulu Hills National Park was opened in January 1983 to protect its unique habitat and role as a vital catchment area. The Chyulus are a volcanic mountain range with a mix of volcanic cones, the most interesting of which is Shetani, meaning Devil in Swahili, and barren lava flows. Game includes: buffalo, zebra, giraffe, oryx, lion, leopard and many species of bird and plant.
The park allows a number of activities: horse riding, hiking, camping, archaeological and geological safaris with caves to explore and fantastic view across the Amboseli and Tsavo plains. Only one small tented lodge with 8 beds.
