If you’re looking for a safari in the coming holiday season, its important to keep in mind that the drive on the rough terrain might prove challenging but it is a treat for those of the adventurous sort. 

What is unique about the Wildlife Conservancy is that it intertwines agricultural and pastoral development with wildlife conservation making it an ideal spot to learn about food security and animal migration for researchers and scientists alike while also providing a worthy travel destination for those looking for an escapade.

 The Galana Kalalu Food security project which overlooks the conservancy was unveiled in 2014 by President Uhuru Kenyatta to solve food insecurity.
