Kamungi Conservancy LOCATION

The conservancy lies within the southern sector of Makueni County, Mtito Andei Ward in the southern part of Kenya.

The permanent Athi River forms the eastern boundary, bordering onto Tsavo East National Park. The southern boundary is the seasonal Mtito River (also TENP northern boundary). Despite being prime wildlife habitat (this area arguably once held the highest density of black rhinos in Africa), the number of wildlife has reduced dramatically since the area was settled in the late 1970’s.

The land barely supports a marginalised community struggling against poverty, yet it provides a crucial habitat to a wide range of wildlife, well adapted to survival in this dry bushland, and acts as buffer between Tsavo East NP to the south, and more densely populated land to the north, allowing space for seasonally ranging wildlife to come and go from the National Park.
