Views: 26 Visited: Jul 2019 Reviewed: Oct 22, 2019

This is the largest national reserve in Kenya with a size of 22,000 square kilometers hence being split into two (East and West) Tsavo. It's not densely populated in terms of wildlife compared to other parks but it has variety of wildlife including vast species of birds which is a plus to birdwatchers.
Tsavo has the longest lava flow and you'll get to see the shetani lava which s really awesome. While there, we spotted a leopard along the la... read more

For nature lovers

Views: 49 Visited: Sep 2019 Reviewed: Oct 05, 2019

This park is huge with varying landscapes from grasslands, rocky outcrops, rivers and hills. There are loads of wildlife and in many different varieties. There are also many birds for those who love bird watching.

The park is home to large herds of elephants and buffalo as well as the sizable lion population. Game drives are easy and you will not drive for more than a few hundred meters before you see the next animal.

The park is easily... read more

Thinking of adventure? Think Tsavo National Park

Views: 574 Visited: Jan 2016 Reviewed: Feb 25, 2016

While visiting Tsavo East and West for three days, we were really satisfied with the whole journey, the guide we used was very professional and knew a lot of the animals. The driver always drove good and secure. They took good care of us. We were also very satisfied with the lodges. Tsavo is a really exiting park and we promised ourselves that we will have to go back again soon. read more

Park with its uniqueness

Views: 478 Visited: Mar 2015 Reviewed: Jun 05, 2015

Tsavo-East is recommended for photographers with its fabulous light and unbelievable views, in particular the Mudanda Rock and the Yatta Plateau, the world’s largest lava flow. Lugard Fall on the Galana River is remarkable for the shaped water-worn rocks. Game includes: elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, crocodile, waterbuck, kudu, gerenuk and zebra and Hunter’s Hartebeest can be seen with its lyre-shaped horns. read more

Unexplored wilderness

Views: 695 Visited: Aug 2008 Reviewed: Feb 12, 2015

To the south-west of Tsavo East National Park, and on the opposite side of the Trans-Africa Highway, you find Tsavo West National Park. This park is one of the greatest wildlife spectacles that this remarkable country has to offer. Even compared with the spectacular Masai Mara, the wildlife density at Lake Jipe (far to the south on the Tanzania border) is astounding. There are great herds of plains game here, immense flocks of waterfowl, massi... read more

Tsavo National Park East Travel Guide

Inside the park itself, Voi Rest House provides accommodation or, more commonly, is used as a lunch pit stop for the safari jeeps. It's a busy place at these times and there can be hundreds of people arriving fairly close to each other. Hotel provides an all you can eat buffet for this service.

Officially, this is outside the Tsavo NP and is on the route from Voi Rest House to the Nature Reserve and Hilton On Stilts. You can see it's much m... read more

Wow!!!!

Views: 592 Visited: Oct 2013 Reviewed: Oct 13, 2014

We just fell in love with Tsavo West. The arid scenery and the wildlife was off the charts. My next time in Kenya, a huge amount of it will be in Tsavo. We stayed at the Kilaguni Serena and the view was mind blowing. I can't say enough about this massive park. And no crowds which was a huge bonus. read more

The twin parks

Views: 516 Visited: Jun 2014 Reviewed: Jul 16, 2014

Tsavo east and west together form the largest wilderness reserve.
One of Tsavo's most interesting geographical feature is the Lugard falls where white water rages through a series of spectacular rock formations.
Not forgetting the volcanic Mzima springs, these natural springs produce 50 million gallons of fresh sparkling water daily.

These two parks are beautiful.

Once a man-eaters home

Views: 826 Visited: Sep 2006 Reviewed: Mar 07, 2014

The Tsavo National Park remains Kenya's largest and also one of the oldest. Once a mega park, it was later divided into West and East. The boundary lies closely along the Mombasa - Nairobi highway. The west remains the busiest through out the year. It bears the history of man-eating lions where many Indians were killed as they constructed the Kenya-Uganda railway. These lions are still usual inhabitants of Tsavo, but I think they stopped eatin... read more

Home of the Tsavo lions

Views: 447 Visited: Aug 2011 Reviewed: Jan 20, 2014

Tsavo National Park is the largest national park in Kenya and is divided into two parks (East and West) which are divided by the Mombasa-Nairobi railway and road. Located near the coast, the park is most famous for being the home of the Tsavo lions during the construction of the railway. The park has a rich history and I was lucky enough to get a good guide and got to enjoy the natural beauty as well as lean a bit of the history.

The journey started from the Kenyan Capital Nairobi through Nairobi-Mombasa Highway to Mtito-Andei town. As I entered the park I was welcomed by thickets of Acacia trees. The roads here are not tarmacked but they are smooth.
I stayed at Serena Kilaguni Lodge where I had booked my reservation for two days stay.
The top attraction here is the Mzima Springs. It is located about 30 miles from Mtito-Andei, the entrance to the park. It is because... read more

Tsavo East Safari!

Views: 589 Visited: Aug 2011 Reviewed: Aug 29, 2013

My second safari in Kenya was along Nairobi Mombasa Highway to the small town of Voi, home to the Vast Tsavo National Park.

The wildlife that one can see is not much there, a few birds but a lot of tourists come to enjoy beautiful scenery.
It was the first time I saw a rhino and I enjoyed the unusual experience. I spotted a number of local lions, which apparently are regular visitors around the campsites. Night driving is possible and you ... read more

Kenya was the seventh safari destination, to the famous Tsavo National Park. It lies between the main Nairobi to Mombasa road and mount Kilimanjaro. We landed in Kenya and a couple hours after we were at the Tsavo. We got there around dawn and spent a night in one of the parks luxurious lodges after a delish meal at the Tsavo hotels accompanied by an entertaining dance performance by the Masai that taught us a little more about the tradition ... read more

Meet the “man-eaters” of Tsavo

Views: 736 Visited: Feb 2013 Reviewed: May 12, 2013

An early morning drive from Kenya’s capital Nairobi, saw us in the Tsavo National Park. Prior to our visit, we had been told stories of the ‘man eating’ lions of the Tsavo, dating back to the colonial period, during which foreigners were constructing a railway line across the park. In my wildest dreams, I was not prepared for the rugged terrain within the park, and the scorching tropical sun is not something one would love to experience on a d... read more

Rugged, expansive park

Views: 428 Visited: Jul 2009 Reviewed: May 10, 2013

The landscape in Tsavo is just breath-taking - incredibly expansive and simply amazing views. I think of this park as somewhat more rugged than some of the other Kenyan parks; however, there are four natural springs that are found there - the most famous being Mzima Springs. For this reason, the park can offer a lot of diversity. Where the landscape can be rugged and expansive (therefore slightly more difficult to see wildlife in such a spr... read more
