  a dirt road in tsavo east
by call_me_rhia

There are no real roads in Tsavo East National Park: all prk roads are dirt roads. They are in really good condition - actually they are by far the best roads I've seen in Kenya - but... things may change abruptly in case of rain. So before joining a safari make sure you know what vehicle will take you round. In case of rain you'll need a 4 wheel drive or you'll risk getting stuck: a jeep would be your best bet. To be fair I don't think jeeps are too common in this part of Kenya - nearly everyone was travelling there by mini-van - with the exception of some luxury safari agents... but thinking back - a jeep woiuld have been a safer bet. Our safari was a very cheap one - we were just lucky it did not rain
