Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks

Together they cover more than 20.000 km2, the largest National Park in Kenya!

They are divided by the Mombasa-Nairobi road and the railway. The strategic location makes it easy for the traveller to start the safari from either Nairobi city or Mombasa. Tsavo is famous for its characteristic red soil, red Elephants and crimson sunsets.

This is the place of the legendary “Man-eaters of Tsavo”, the two most dangerous maneless male lions, who had terrorized workers constructing the Kenya-Uganda Railway in 1898. Here Karen Blixen flew over Tsavo with Finch Hatton in the movie “Out of Africa”.
This is probably the wildest park in Kenya, plenty of wildlife it habits all the African Big5 (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhino), among spectacular sceneries.

Tsavo East is the largest part, flat and dry, it has an undeniable wild and primordial charm and is a terrific wildlife-watching destination.
To the north of the Galana river lies the Yatta Plateau, 290km long, one of the largest lava flows on Earth. Lugard’s Falls are actually rapids which flow over fascinating geological formations, and inselbergs as the Mudanda Rock the miniature of Ayers Rock in Australia!
Tsavo West is smaller, a hilly volcanic landscape dominated by the view of Kilimanjaro.

Features are Mzima Springs source of crystal clear waters and Lake Jipe on the Tanzanian border for birdwatching.
