Tsavo East National Park
When travelling from Mombasa to Nairobi, you drive through the vast expanse of Tsavo. Being the largest Game Park in Kenya and its close proximity to the coast, Tsavo is a popular safari destination
It’s divided into two parts; Tsavo East and Tsavo West. Tsavo East is generally more easily accessible as a stopover between Nairobi and Mombasa with several luxury and mid range lodges found at various points along the Mombasa highway, some within their own private conservancies.
Its 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.
You’ll have a chance to see 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.
