The Amazing Experience

African Warthog


The common warthog, also known as the African warthog, is a wild member of the pig family that is native to the grasslands, savannas, and woodlands of sub-Saharan Africa.

It is known for its distinctive facial features, including warts on the sides of its face and large tusks. The common warthog is a herbivorous animal, feeding mainly on grasses and other vegetation.

They are social animals and often live in groups called sounders. Despite their somewhat intimidating appearance, common warthogs are generally not aggressive towards humans and are an important part of their natural ecosystems.

-Fun facts about African Warthog-

They're not warts, they're bumps!

The protrusions on the sides of their faces are actually made of bone and cartilage, not warts, and are thought to offer protection during fights between males.

They dig with their "wrists"

When grazing, warthogs kneel down and use their calloused wrists for support, making them look like they're eating on their knees.

They're speed demons

While they might look clumsy, warthogs can actually run quite fast, reaching speeds of up to 48 kilometers per hour (30 miles per hour). This helps them outrun predators in a pinch.

They speak the language of birds

Warthogs have a symbiotic relationship with yellow hornbill birds. The birds feast on parasites living on the warthog's skin, keeping them pest-free, while the birds benefit from a readily available food source.

They recycle like pros

Warthogs play a vital role in the ecosystem by churning up the soil as they dig for food. This aerates the soil and helps plants grow better.

They don't like the heat

Warthogs are diurnal creatures, meaning they are active during the day. However, in hotter regions, they might be more active at night to avoid the scorching sun.

They're not big on water

Warthogs are surprisingly efficient when it comes to water usage. They can survive for long periods without water, thanks to their ability to extract moisture from their food.

They have a designated feeder system

Each piglet in a litter has its own designated teat to nurse from and won't try to steal milk from another. This ensures each piglet gets the nutrients it needs.

They're tough as nails

Warthogs are known for their resilience and ability to adapt to harsh environments. They can survive in various habitats, from grasslands to savannas.

Reviews From Our Guests

 First impressions when you get, there might be a little bit tatty. But you soon change your mind when you start interacting with the animals. We were greeted by ostriches, walking around freely and were able to feed them. We had an amazing guide all to ourselves called Fedelis. Her English was incredible and she was so informative about all animals and the surrounding park.


Towards the end of the tour, we were able to feed zebras, but the real highlight was feeding the giraffes, it really was an experience that I could recommend anyone to do.


A lovely, peaceful walk around the reserve, getting up close and personal with zebra and ostriches. We had a super guide called Joseph who was very knowledgeable and guided us around for about an hour and a half, and we were lucky enough to feed the giraffes too.


A perfect personal trip which we all enjoyed.

Bring a camera! Great activity for the family to interact with some of Kenyas wildlife. 2-3 hours is enough.
