The meaning of “Kinyonga”
“Kinyonga” is a Swahili word meaning Chameleon which essentially means little lion. These completely harmless reptiles are feared by many inhabitants of Africa. This unreasonable fear also exists with snakes yet most snakes are, also themselves, totally harmless. The Kinyonga Reptile Centre has a dedicated team that works at saving reptiles by all means possible. We believe that education is a powerful tool that should play a major role in conservation.
