Ranging from giant herons to tiny sunbirds, the diversity of African birdlife is startling in its colour and vibrancy. Additionally, the Lions Bluff area boasts a number of endemic species, such as the globally threatened Taita Thrush, Taita White-eye, Taita Apalis, Abbott's starling and the Southern Banded Snake Eagle.

Battlefield Tour

LUMO is surrounded by historic first world war sites. The campaign between German and British East Africa (sometimes referred to as The Ice Cream War because the troops melted in the sun) took place between 1914 and 1918.

Bush Walk

The guided wilderness walk- a walk on the wild side To really appreciate all the LUMO Community Wildlife Sanctuary has to offer, you have to leave the safari vehicle behind; and take a walk.

Traditional Dances

Nature Trail

Especially interesting to children, guided by a ranger and our resident Taita naturalist, meander around Lions Bluff and discover tracks and signs of the bush. Learn which roots and leaves are edible, which are used by the local people to treat tummy aches or put spells on your enemies. Examine spider nests, collect quartz rock, or leaves to make a refreshing tea. Identify birds by their call and watch them in the bush.

Sundowner Cocktails

Drinks served in scenic location as the sun goes down - typically between 6-7 pm.
