The Marshy Floodplains of Mandusi Swamp

Mandusi Swamp is formed by the Munge stream. The swamp is a special habitat: a refuge for elephants and hippos, hunting ground for predators, cover for small animals, reserve grazing for the large herds of wildebeest and zebra and a nesting site for birds. There are about 70 different bull elephants that are regular visitors to the Crater floor and Mandusi Swamp while breeding herds of elephants (cows and calves) wander only through the rim forests and are rarely seen on the floor.

This region is best known for massive bull elephants, scenic views, large concentrations of crowned cranes and as the home to the elusive leopard. It’s topography boasts meandering streams, shallow pools and long grasslands.
