GUIDE ON CHYULU HILLS NATIONAL PARK IN KENYA
Chyulu Hills National Park is a striking landscape of emerald green hills, open vistas, dense forests and pools of water with reflections of white clouds in azure blue skies. Remote and wild, the park and surrounding conservancies are largely untouched by humans with the exception of the Maasai warriors who protect and depend upon the land.
Described by Ernest Hemingway as "The Green Hills of Africa," this Kenyan treasure is not known as a big game destination, but rather, it is one of the few places where you will find almost no signs of tourism, lending to the surreal sense of isolation amidst surrounding resident fauna. Endless open plains are cut by the rugged deep black lava flows that tell the story of this enchanted land, while the rocky outcrops give you breathtaking vistas of the diverse habitats, all with Africa's most iconic mountain in the background – Mount Kilimanjaro.
Game drives are the paramount way to see the large mammals during your exploratory safari in Chyulu Hills Park with AfricanMecca. Because few visitors come to this outback, you will have an uncommon story to share with those who have not personally experienced the beauty of Chyulu.Your Maasai guide is native to this land and has an extensive knowledge of the animals and habitats. Under his lead, you see giraffes adeptly use their long tongues to extract the leaves of the acacia trees while delicately avoiding the thorns.
Nearby zebras stand together to create a dizzying pattern of black and white stripes to confuse a lone cheetah that stands on a mound looking for prey. On the crest of a low hill is a scene that you have imagined for your dream East African tour – a pride of lions laze about in the early morning after a night of hunting while their young cubs attempt to pry morsels from the carcass.
You will truly appreciate your guide’s skills, experience and knowledge when he locates the most elusive animals in the park -- leopards and other stealthy predators, as well as elephants, buffalos, rhinos and other grazers. More diverse fauna are wildebeest, impala, bushbuck, oryx, eland, reedbuck, steinbok and other hoofed herbivores.
Bush walks and hiking excursions give you a different perspective of the Chyulu Hills eco-systems, as your guide helps you identify insects, plants and tiny mammals that rustle in the bush as you pass. Another activity for your exquisite Kenya vacation is to spend the day horseback riding with a guide, and settling in at night in a traditional fly camp. AfricanMecca Safaris can also arrange mountain bike excursions, birding trips and cultural activities for your visit to Chyulu.

BEST TIME TO VISIT CHYULU HILLS
Wildlife behavior in Chyulu is significantly influenced by the abundance or scarcity of water thus tracking fauna is easier during the dry season as watering holes are more crowded than during the rains.

Jambo Raza, I think I speak for both of us when I say that this was one of the best trips of our lives. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable -- Steven, in Amboseli, was particularly outstanding.
