Tsavo National Park West Travel Guide: 98 reviews and 304 photos

We met Moses from Mics Tours the evening before our trip in and our hotel lobby. He’s an interesting man . He is a Masai and showed us scars on his leg from a lion he killed by spear to fulfill his tradition as a young warrier
In the morning we set off for the first part of our safari with our guide, Samuwell who is also Masai. He’s soft spoken but a very talented and caring man. We were often amazed that he could spot even the most well hidden animal.

Our drive took only a couple of hours and we arrive at Tsavo West through the Manyani Gate.
The animals prove to be a bit more elusive here than those in Tanzania . It is very dry but they manage to hide in the short shrubby trees .

    I envy your tour of Tsavo West! Visiting an African game park is one of those things a person should do at least once in their lifetime. I enjoyed 'riding' along with you on your tour of Tsavo NP! Great animal shots and also your nightime viewing area.

    Sounds like an adventurous trip! We went to a place like this in Swaziland once. It's always exciting to see large wild animals "in person", so to speak, in what's left of their natural habitat.
