The Galana Conservancy is a wildlife conservancy that borders the world famous Tsavo East National Park in Coastal Province, Kenya. The Galana Conservancy was formed in May 2009 and is a not for profit joint venture between Vital Conservancy Lease Company Limited and the state owned Agricultural Development Corporation that totals some 65,000 acres of semi-arid ground. This 60,000 acre wildlife haven for some of the world’s most renowned and rarest African wildlife species is situated on the eastern boundary of Tsavo East National Park and on the northern banks of the Galana River. The GWC was set up to protect the last remaining “Tuskers”(Big Tusked Elephants) in Tsavo. The location was paramount in creating a buffer zone to limit the human/ wildlife conflict that was being suffered in the area. The three main communities living in Galana are the Orma, the Watta and the Giriama. Access to the Conservancy is by road from Malindi and Watamu in the East, from Voi in the West and by air from Malindi, Mombasa or Nairobi (there are 3 airstrips in the immediate area including one at Kulalu Camp which also serves as the new Conservancy HQ) The Main Conservancy Gate is situated at its south-east end, across the Galana River/ADC Ranch Headquarters causeway.
