Kisite-Mpunguti Marine National Park
Kisite-Mpunguti Marine National Park is a national park on the south coast of Kenya near the border with Tanzania. The Marine National Park includes Kisite Park, which covers 28 square kilometres, and Mpunguti Reserve, an eleven square kilometre marine area with four small islands surrounded by a coral reef.
The species-rich coral reef provides a habitat for over 250 species of fish such as triggerfish, moray eels, angelfish, scorpionfish or rays, as well as green and hawksbill turtles and dolphins. Depending on the season, humpback whales and whale sharks can also be found.
There are caves with freshwater springs whose origin is believed to be in the Kilimanjaro massif, more than 200 kilometres away.
