Arguably the largest park in Kenya and in the whole world, Tsavo covers almost 4% of Kenya’s land mass. It’s divided in two by a major highway into west and east. Tsavo East is more remote but boasts of one of the Kenya’s largest rivers, Galana, flowing along the basement of the world’s largest lava plateau known as The Yatta Plateau.Tsavo East is home to the Red Elephants and natural habitat to the Baby Elephants brought in from the David Sheldrick Orphanage in Nairobi.
Tsavo West on the other hand is richer with vegetation hence home to the BIG 5 (Elephants, Lions, Rhinos, Cheetah, Leopard ). The park is well known for the famous TSAVO MAN EATERS which were lions that used to prey on railway workers both local and foreign constructing the Kenya Uganda railway line. it is also well developed with famous lodges NGULIA and KILANGUNI strategically located within the park.
Mzima Springs – a breath taking scenery of clear crystal waters gashing out of one of the world’s famous lava flows. This is a must visit area for birders.
In Tsavo East you can view the spectacular Lugard falls and view the Yatta Plateau which is the longest plateau in the world running almost 300 Km. It is also home to the Mudada Rock which runs for about 1.5 km and The Aruba dam which is man made habitat for very many Hippos.
In Tsavo West you can view the Roaring Rocks and better yet find out why they are called that, the Shetani and Chaimu Lava flows and The Five Sisters Hills which are identical. Amboseli National Park is a popular tourist destination and its close proximity to Tsavo makes it easily accessible. The park in this region offers a well managed game watching experience against the stunning back drop of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa.
