Kenya’s largest park, Tsavo, is sliced in two (literary by the Mombasa/Nairobi Highway);

Tsavo West and Tsavo East for administration purposes.

Together these parks comprise 4% of the country’s total area and encompass rivers, waterfalls, savannah, volcanic hills, a massive lava-rock plateau, and an impressive diversity of wildlife.

Tsavo East is famous for photo-worthy sightings of large elephant herds rolling and bathing in red dust.

The palm-fringed Galana River twists through the park providing excellent game viewing and a lush counterpoint to the arid plains.

Other highlights here include the Yatta Plateau, the world’s longest lava flow, Mudanda Rock, and the Lugard Falls, which spill into rapids and crocodile-filled pools.

Tsavo West is wetter and topographically more varied with some of the most beautiful scenery in the northern reaches of the park.

Highlights are Mzima Springs – series of natural springs with large populations of hippos and crocodiles. Chaimu Crater, a great spot for spotting birds of prey, and Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary.
