A Tsavo West and East Safari offers an opportunity to explore two of Kenya’s largest and most diverse national parks: Tsavo West National Park and Tsavo East National Park. These parks are located in southeastern Kenya and together cover an area larger than the island of Jamaica.
Tsavo West National Park is known for its rugged terrain, volcanic hills, and stunning landscapes, including the famous Mzima Springs, where you can view hippos and crocodiles from an underwater observation chamber. The park is also home to a variety of wildlife, including elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs, buffaloes, and a wide variety of bird species.
Tsavo East National Park, on the other hand, is known for its vast savannahs, rolling hills, and the Galana River, which attracts a variety of wildlife, including large herds of elephants. The park is also home to the famous “red elephants” of Tsavo, whose skin is stained red by the park’s rich, red soil. Other wildlife commonly seen in the park includes lions, leopards, cheetahs, buffaloes, giraffes, and a wide variety of bird species.
A Tsavo West and East Safari typically includes game drives in both parks, giving you the chance to see a wide variety of wildlife and to experience the diverse landscapes of the two parks. Many safari operators also offer the opportunity to visit local villages and learn about the traditional way of life of the people who live in the area.
Whether you’re a wildlife enthusiast, a birdwatcher, or simply looking for a unique and off-the-beaten-path safari experience, a Tsavo West and East Safari is sure to be an adventure you’ll never forget.
