Pros and Cons
- Stunning scenery with views of Mt Kilimanjaro
- Important bird area with several northern dry-country endemics
- Very exclusive and doesn't get crowded
- A lovely tented camp is the perfect get-away
- Wildlife is thinly populated and skittish
Topi, eland, giraffe, zebra and gazelles are likely to be seen. Wild dogs have been re-introduced, but are not seen that often. Black rhino has also been re-introduced, but is kept in an enclosure for safety. Several dry country species can be spotted like fringe-eared oryx, lesser kudu and the odd looking gerenuk. With more than 400 species recorded, the birding is good- with many dry country specials present.
