Location

 

KIPWA is located at Yatta plateau, 114Km from Nairobi. Coordinates: S01.07423 E037.48911

It is sandwiched between the Athi and Thika rivers, giving it a Mediterranean micro climate, unlike the rest of the country which is tropical. At 290Km, Yatta Plateau is the world's longest and oldest fossilized lava flow. It is made up of phonolite lava, which is between 10 and 14 million years old.

 

Conservation Philosophy

At KIPWA, we believe in holistic conservation. Conservation incorporating both flora and fauna and focusing on the physical environment, insects,  plants and animals ensures that our planet survives and benefits generations to come. 

 

Ecosystem

KIPWA is home to wildlife that include; Nile Crocodiles, Ostriches, Leopard Tortoise, and small game such as DikDik and Impala. KIPWA is also home to interesting plant species that reflect on the importance of conserving our physical and biological environment. Not far from KIPWA is the Ukasi Hill where one of the world's weird-looking and rarest flies known as the 'terrible hairy fly' is found in a cave like rock cleft, and to date this is its only known habitat.  

At KIPWA, we practise and sensitise visitors on the biological control of pests and weeds through princilpes of basic chemical ecology, the importance of plants in nitrogen fixation in the soil, importance of minimum soil disturbace, importance of crop rotation, and advantages of permanent soil cover. Further, did you know that wildlife is important in the control of some diseases that affect livestock? Come learn this at KIPWA.
