Tsavo National Park
Tsavo is the largest National Park in Kenya measuring 8500mi² and has been divided in to two areas - Tsavo East and Tsavo West. Bordering the Chyulu Hills National Park and the Mkomazi Game Reserve in Tanzania it is an appealing safari destination. The Tsavo River attracts abundant wildlife all year round and from your safari vehicle you will see them gathering by the refreshing waters in the heat of the day. This creates an oasis for animals as most of the park consists of grasslands and savannah. Tsavo National Park is considered to be one of the world's biodiversity strongholds and this is mainly due to the shier amounts of diverse wildlife that can be seen throughout the park.
Tsavo is a beautifully peaceful reserve where you can relax in the unspoilt wilderness with ok wildlife. As it is near to the Kenya Coast you have the opportunity to combine a beach holiday with your safari, having the convenience of short travel times.
The eastern region of the National Park has spectacular scenery with flourishing vegetation and wetlands as well as the Galana River which attracts animals such as elephants, hippos and reptiles. Grazing through the savannah are giraffe, eland, antelope and predators including the powerful lion, cheetah and leopard.
In the centre of the park are tribal rock paintings and caves. Other attractions include the Lugard Falls, Yatta Plateau, Mudanda Rock and the Aruba Dam. The Lugard Falls reveal beautiful eroded rocks that the Galana River flows through. The water then forms rapids and enters the pools filled with crocodiles. The Mudanda Rock is shaped like a whale and is positioned over a natural dam which attracts thousands of elephants. The Yatta Plateau is the longest lava flow in the world and draws many species of migratory birds. The Aruba Dam is visited by animals in their thousands which makes a wonderful destination for game viewing!
