"TSAVO" Tsavo National Park by sigg

Tsavo National Park Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 114 photos


At just over 21,000km sq, Tsavo is the largest national park in Kenya and one of the largest in the world. Because of its size the park was split into two, Tsavo West and Tsavo East, for easy administration. Midway between Nairobi and Mombasa the area boasts volcanic hills, four rivers, more than 60 major mammal species and 1000 plant species. But its huge size has also been its enemy and the park has been hard hit by poachers who slaughtered horrifying numbers of rhino, elephant and other species.

The northern part of Tsavo West is the most developed and has spectacular scenery with a rolling volcanic landscape carpeted in long grass and dense bush. Although the tall vegetation makes game spotting trickier than in some of the other parks, the big five are in residence along with a fine collection of antelope. The main attraction of the park are the two watering holes, where lodges have been built which more or less guarantee that their guests will be treated to fabulous game viewing.
