Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary, in the Kwale District of Kenya's Coastal Province, was created in 1933 to preserve a large corridor along an ancient elephant migration route. The aim was to protect the African elephants from poachers. It was opened to the public in 1995 by then Director of Kenya Wildlife Services, Dr. David Western. Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary conserves the serene surroundings, rare and endangered African elephants, the moist deciduous forest, riparian vegetation, and other special attractions including a rare cycad forest. Dinosaur Cycads are fan-like plants that evolved around 300 million years ago, and can be sighted while driving across the terrain. The ecosystem in Mwaluganje has rolling hills, steep ridges, cliffs and winding water shades, and a watering hole. It is a forested area of approximately 23,736 hectares, comprised of Shimba forest, Mkongani West, Mkongani North, and Mwaluganje forest that surrounds it.
