Tsavo is the largest Gamepark in Kenya, and it’s close proximity to the coast makes it a popular safari destination.

My Destination

It's divided into two parts; Tsavo East and Tsavo West. West Tsavo is slightly harder to get to, but is the heart of the wilderness and it is here where you find many of the exclusive, luxury camps

My Destination

LOCATION & LANDSCAPE

It’s diverse landscapes range from mountains, plains, lakes, wooded grasslands, scrubland with enormous baobab trees to river forest. The vast openness, make it easy to imagine that this unspoiled wilderness  was probably how all of East Africa once looked.

THINGS TO DO, IN AND AROUND TSAVO WEST

Mzima Springs is an oasis in Tsavo West, and has nature walks, an underwater viewing chamber, hippo pools and rapids making this an interesting place to visit. Black lava outcrops at Shetani are also interesting as are the caves and Chaimu crater nearby.
