The Lumo Conservancy is a community based conservation park of 195 square kilometers in size. It lies in between the Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary and Tsavo West National Park. It’s a great area for game drives and walking safari’s with the usual suspects of the African wildlife present. And since it’s not an official national park, you can do unique night game drives here…!

The night gamedrive allows you to spot night creatures such as the aardvark and the serval cat, and to get a chance to see lions and leopards hunting. This gamedrive starts right after dinner, and takes you by car into the bush. The ranger will have a light to spot animals lurking around in the dark bushes, which allows you to see more. Usually on a night game drive, the accommodation where you spend the night will provide you with a vehicle and a guide. You may be sharing a jeep with another group if other guests also booked this activity.
The air feels different at night and so does nature itself. Sounds of the wilderness fill the air, the stars stud the sky and not many people get to live to experience this unique gamedrive. Local communities living in this area support and benefit from this park, which definitely makes it worth a visit.
