Roughly midway between Nairobi and Mombasa, Tsavo East and Tsavo West provide two unique safari experiences with different landscapes, wildlife and ecosystems. Both are vast and uncrowded, giving you a relaxed, unhurried safari experience.
Red Elephants of Tsavo
The distinctive red-oxide sands of Tsavo coat and cover the elephants as they wallow, roll and spray each other with it.
On the northern bank of the Voi River, Aruba Dam attracts vast numbers of wildlife and is an excellent viewpoint.
Mudanda Rock is a whale-backed rock formation which towers over a natural dam and is a natural drawcard for thousands of elephant.
The longest lava flow in the world (over 300 km long), Yatta Plateau is a bird lover's paradise, attracting migrant birds from all corners of the globe.
Lugard's Falls on the Galana River, cascades over rocks eroded into bizarre shapes over millennia into crocodile-infested pools.
Tsavo National Park is home to most of the large plains animals; elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard, waterbuck, lesser kudu, gerenuk and hirola. The watercourses are alive with hippo and crocodile. Over 500 species of bird have been recorded.
We have no scheduled safaris to Tsavo but can include one on a tailor-made Kenyan safari itinerary. We recommend spending at least 2 nights at Tsavo National Park. Speak to us about your safari wishlist and we'd be more than happy to design a custom safari to suit your budget and requirements.
