Tsavo is made up of two separate parks, Tsavo East National Park and Tsavo West National Park. Located in Coast Province of Kenya in between Nairobi City and Mombasa.
There are many tourist attractions at Tsavo West National Park, from safari tours to see the red-skinned elephants, to birdwatching and hill hiking, to caving and boating.

There are many Kenyan animals in the park, including elephants, African lions, hippos, cheetahs, hartebeest and buffalo. A wildlife safari is the best way to see Kenya’s wildlife close-up in its natural environment. Tsavo West is home to the largest population of red-skinned elephants as well as to members of the rest of the “Big 5” African animals (buffalo, African lions, leopards and rhinos). There is also a host of Kenyan birds and other animals, both large and small too.

Day 2
Tsavo West National Park

We start the day with breakfast after which you have the option of a full day touring Tsavo West National Park, OR early morning and afternoon game drives in the park. There is more than enough to see if you go for the full day park option. You will see the famous Mzima Springs Hippo Pools, the rhino sanctuary and the Shetani Lava Flows. Tsavo offers some of the most impressive game viewing in the world: enormous herds of dust-red elephant, fat pods of hippo, giant crocodile, teeming herds of plains game, a fantasia of bird life and enchanting flora. The lush, hippo-inhabited pools of Mzima Springs, fed daily by 250 million liters of water gushing from the lava flows of the Chyulu hills, provide an oasis of green, an under-water hippo-viewing chamber, two nature trails and some unique picnic spots. Sundowners can be arranged to be taken on safari or at the lodge camp at an extra cost. We conclude the day with dinner at the camp..
