A massive 1.5 Km long rocky outcrop that is to be a relic of Tsavo east national park's origins - that date back to the Precambrian era. It is said to have been used for drying strips of meat and as a lookout, by local tribes in the past.

Today it serves as one of few spots in the park where visitors can have a walking safari, with its top giving 360 ° views of the park.

What to do there?Game drives in the areas nearby, especially the dam where animals frequent, including herds of elephants. Or have a short walking safari to the top, for a bird's eye view of the Tatta plateau, the dam below and animals that drink from it.

A list of other attractions in the park can be found on our attractions page.

Best time to visit?The dry season of July to February bring more animals to drink from the pond nearby.

Location of Mudanda rockMudanda rock is located in the southwestern shrub lands of Tsavo East national park, a few minutes worth of driving south of Manyani gate.

That means a good old fashioned safari through the dusty roads of the park, using a private or rental vehicle.

There are passenger buses and the SGR railway that ply the Nairobi - Mombasa route nearby, but you still would need some type of vehicle to get into the park.
