The Watha people are just one of the Galana tribes and are situated nearest to the Kulalu Camp area. Traditionally known as elephant hunters, these people were sadly displaced with the creation of the Tsavo National Park. These skilled trackers some of whom are now employed to protect the wildlife, are excellent at spotting and understanding nature. Sadly, many of this nomadic tribe are forced into sustenance farming, which is a far cry from their traditions and roaming way of life, in harmony with their environment and wildlife.
Join Crista Cullen of Tofauti, whose family have been invested in the conservation of the area for generations. Her journey explores the history of this little-known tribe, and how they are adapting to their role as protectors and guardians of the Galana wildlife ecosystem. Shaddy the Kulalu guide demonstrates his skills in tracking a large male tusker and discovering an injured male cheetah, hidden in a bush, to be rescued by Kenya Wildlife Service.
