Do you agree that good things come in small packages?
The rarest antelope species, Sitatunga, is found in the Saiwa Swamp National Park which happens to be the smallest park in Kenya.
Saiwa swamp national park covers only 3 km squared and is located in Kitale, Trans-Nzoia County, Kenya. It was created to protect and preserve the Sitatunga.
This park was established in 1974 and managed by the Kenya Wildlife Service. Its vegetation is a mixture of forest and swamp habitat with tall bushes and reeds along its marshy edge. Apart from the Sitatunga, the park also has smaller African animals, including black and white Columbus monkeys, genet cats, mongooses, bushbucks, and De Brazzas monkeys, some bird species as well as unique indigenous flora species.
The park has no roads within its perimeter but instead, it has walking trails and bridges.
It suits walking, camping and even bird watching. It also has observation towers and treehouses. It is an ideal park to visit if you enjoy walking, bird watching, or camping.
