Crescent Island Game Sanctuary in Naivasha
Just minutes away from our camp, Crescent Island Game Sanctuary has one of the highest concentrations of wildlife per square meter compared to other wildlife conservation areas. The relatively small size of Crescent Island, combined with its unique geography and the fact that it is a sanctuary rather than a national park, contributes to this phenomenon.
The sanctuary is home to a variety of wildlife, including giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, impalas, gazelles, and more. The animals in Crescent Island are accustomed to the presence of humans, and visitors can explore the area on foot, making it a more intimate and up-close wildlife experience. The absence of predators on the island also contributes to a sense of safety for both visitors and the animals.
While the claim of the highest concentration of animals per square meter may vary and is difficult to quantify precisely, Crescent Island’s unique characteristics make it a popular destination for those seeking a close encounter with wildlife in a stunning natural setting.
