The Amazing Experience

Monitor Lizard


The common monitor lizard, also known as the water monitor, is a large reptile. They are known for their impressive size, powerful limbs, and long, forked tongues. These lizards are often found near bodies of water, where they hunt for prey and bask in the sun.

They are skilled climbers and swimmers, making them well-adapted to their environment.Despite their intimidating appearance, common monitor lizards are generally shy and solitary creatures, and are not considered to be a threat to humans unless provoked. They play an important role in their ecosystems as predators, helping to control populations of smaller animals.

It's important to respect their space and observe them from a distance to ensure their safety and well-being in their natural habitat.

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.
