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


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.  


My Destination


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.

My Destination


You’ll see many elephant, the big 5 (leopard, lion, rhino, elephant and buffalo) and a whole host of other animals and birds. Wildlife you can expect to see include giraffe, zebra, antelopes of all shapes and sizes, crocodile, hyena, ostrich, warthog and so many more. There are hundreds of species of birds and more.
