The Kibwezi Forest Reserve, established in 1936, is one of Kenya's last rainforests and part of the East Tsavo Conservancy area.
It is managed in partnership with the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which has secured a 30-year concession to conserve and support the environment and its biodiversity.
The project includes conservation and protection programmes that include natural resource management, poaching patrols and the construction and maintenance of electrically fenced boundaries, ensuring the ongoing rehabilitation of the area and safeguarding local communities and their livelihoods from wildlife damage.
Visiting Kibwezi Forest and staying at Umani Springs, a new and elegant lodge born out of Sheldrick Trust's commitment to conservation within this unique habitat, offering the epitome of African comfort while actively pursuing environmental stability and wildlife conservation.
The Kibwezi Forest is an ideal place for birdwatchers, botanists and entomologists and is in a perfect location to make the most of all the sites and stays offered within the large conservation area of Tsavo.
Highlights to explore include the hippopotamus habitats at Mzima Springs in Tsavo West, the incredible wildlife and landscapes of Tsavo East, the Kisula caves in the Chyulu hills and the wildlife walks around the springs and Kibwezi forest. As a foster parent you can also take an exclusive day trip to see the Trust's elephants in the centre during their private afternoon mud bath; but whatever the day brings the different environments to discover from the Kibwezi forest sanctuary are endless.
