Woodley's bridge place

No image
Formed where the Athi river passes through bedrock, carving a narrow channel that almost looks man made. A little over 1 Km in length and 20 metres in width, it was named after Bill woodley — once a warden of Tsavo east national park.

The river flows faster here and both its banks are rocky, with a few rocky islands at its centre.

What to do there?Explore the natural phenomenon, having a short walking safari to the river's edge, or have game drives of the area nearby. A list of other things to see in the park can be found on our attractions page.

Best time to visit?Any time of the year, though the rest of the park would be best seen during the dry seasons.

Location of Woodley's bridge placeWoodley's bridge place is on the western end of Tsavo East national park, a part of the Athi river right before its meeting point with Tsavo river to form Galana river. The Yatta plateau is situated a short distance east of here.

For more information on this location, please see the map below.

How to get there?Mostly by air, as the nearest airstrips are a bit far out, thus requiring a safari drive through Tsavo's red dusty roads to get here. But then again, flying there may save you some time and give you a rare bird's eye view of the park.

There are trains and passenger buses that ply the Mombasa — Nairobi route, though a vehicle would still be needed to get here from the gates.
