Today’s review: Chaimo Hill by Amakove Wala
Touring Tsavo West National Park and wueh! You need a week to absorb everything.
We got the services of Kenya Wildlife Service Deputy Warden for Tsavo West National Park as well as the Ranger stationed at Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge
Let me share about Mzima Springs. The oasis in a desert. Like literally a beautiful oasis. The springs seep underground all the way from the volcanic Chyulu Hills to pop up in Tsavo West. This is the main source of drinking water to most of Taita Taveta County and Mombasa County.
KWS has renovated the place by having a beautiful nature walk around the springs including a glass house right in the bottom where you can view the colourful fish, hippos and crocodiles. If you miss them at the glass House, worry not for plenty of crocodiles and hippos will be swimming in the pools.
The vegetation around is indigenous. I even saw a Muratina tree! The elephants have destroyed many of the trees though but that is part of the cycle of nature.
I loved the washrooms. Clean and with soap and water. Carry your own tissue though. There is plenty of parking but you have to be escorted by the rangers because of the crocodiles and hippos.
