Mugie Dam

In August 2009, the construction of an enormous 500 meter long dam wall was completed in the heart of the rhino sanctuary. This is Kenya’s third largest private dam. A flash flood filled the dam overnight resulting in a beautiful 156 acre lake holding 1.3 billion litres of water.

The dam fulfills a vital role in providing water for the wildlife during times of drought. Migratory birds as far away as Siberia are attracted to the lake and are among over 280 unique bird species found on Mugie Conservancy.

Bass and tilapia fishing is currently being introduced.
