Report written by Marvin Mwarangu
I began my internship at E&B at the end of February 2018. Aside from the interesting work, I have seen beautiful flora and fauna during my time here. Below is some of the beauty that Sagalla and its environs have to offer.
This has always been the greatest and best view of Sagala hill from the camp. Every morning as I go from my tent to the office I always get to see this spectacular view and it quenches my thirst for landscapes.
Well maintained beehive fences are used to deter elephants from invading the farms and have truly reduced Human-Elephant Conflict in farming communities like Sagalla.
The title “Red Elephants” of Tsavo doesn’t mean that the elephants were born that way… NO! The name is more of a nickname. Tsavo East National Park soil is somewhat red and when the elephants wallow in the mud they look that shade of red.
The red-billed hornbill is a very interesting and lovely bird to watch. Some people say it’s a noise maker but I say it’s a way of communicating.
These are some of the birds around Voi – Sagalla. Truly this is a bird’s paradise. Every morning and evening a great relaxation mood is felt as you listen to the birds’ chirping music.
Apart from the bees and other pollinators, butterflies help in pollinating the flowers too. Just like this little butterfly. Is it not just magnificent and charming?
Graceful Gerenuks and other antelopes can be spotted feeding on shrubs and bushes.
With the help of my friend (Mr. Elly) I have to say goodbye for now. More great and amazing pictures coming soon, just keep looking at the E&B blog!
