What to Do
The Conservancy shares an un-fenced boundary with the world renowned Tsavo East National Park and is home to many wonderful but endangered and threatened species. The beautiful Lali Hills and the meandering Galana River dominate the rugged landscape and offer a magnificent glimpse of the real Kenya. With the unfortunate exception of rhino our visitors can expect to encounter all the wonderful wildlife associated with East Africa. In addition to the larger mammals there is an unsurpassed and really exceptional wealth of bird-life. Whatever your passion is, whether wildlife or wilderness, excitement or relaxation, you will find a place with us.
After a long afternoon of straining your eyes to spot that elusive leopard within the conservancy boundaries, why not enjoy a cold tusker ‘Kenyan local brew’ whilst watching the sun go down from poachers point (top of the lali hills). "Everything the light touches is ours," so please help us preserve it.

However be aware that you must exit the conservancy by 8pm,

When To Go
There’s a reason Kenya’s big cats take time out during the middle of the day – it’s boiling. In February and March you’re looking at temperatures of around 30°C and up. Wind back to November, or forward to June, and days are a bit milder. Or, make a beeline for the coast – it’s still between 27°C and 31°C all year round, but coastal breezes take the edge off. The main rainy season in Kenya is from the end of March ‘til May. It’s not constant downpours, though – expect blue skies and sunshine, with about an hour or two of rain each day. October and November also see a fair bit of rain, but, again, it usually comes in short, sharp bursts.
