Swara Plains Wildlife Conservancy Athi River Nairobi Day Tour: Take a trip to the little known Swara Plains Wildlife Conservancy situated on the Kapati Plains, 35 kilometres southwest of the capital, Nairobi, just off the main Nairobi-to-Mombasa highway.
Swara Plains Conservancy is just 30 minutes out of the city of Nairobi. The Small World Country Club on the southern side of the road marks the entranceway to Swara.
This 20,000 acres ranch is old wild Africa at its very best: wide open savannah grasslands, tall yellow fever trees, endless views, over 3000 resident population of easy to see plains game and +270 birds species.
Swara Plains Conservancy is part of the Tsavo and Amboseli eco-system and with the exception of Elephants, Rhinos and Buffaloes all the other plains games found in Tsavo and Amboseli are found here.
You will see big herds of Oryx, Elands, Wildebeests, Giraffes, Monkeys, Hartebeests, Zebras, Impalas, Grant’s and Thompson’s Gazelles, Warthogs and the occasional Gerenuk in the total absence of mass tourism.
Swara Plains Wildlife Conservancy also has a good number of Cheetahs and Leopards but is rarely seen.
For birders, walkers as well as anyone looking for a nature-based tour in Kenya, we invite you to Swara Plains Wildlife Conservancy for all the right reasons: one-off wildlife viewing experience, guided nature walks, colourful and easily found Kenyan birds.
Birds that can be seen include Hoopoe, Sunbirds, Lovebirds, Waxbills, Starlings, Hornbills, Boubous, White-bellied Canary, Red-cheeked Cordon-Bleu, Crested Francolin among others.
