NNP has one of the most significant herds of eland in the country.

3-P1050473

We have perfect eland habitat with plenty of seasonal grazing & browsing, in a variety of habitats from semi-desert scrub to dry afromontane forest.

Eland have huge ranges, however and our herd is now confined to the 130 square kilometre ParkĀ and surrounding buffer zonesĀ and conservancies.

The SGR railway is about to punch through this haven for elands and so many other creatures. Will they survive going into the future?

The eland: the largest of African antelopes: perfectly adapted to survive in harsh African conditions, is now reduced to a few thousand individuals in Kenya.

These magnificent creatures deserve space: let us give it to them?
