Tsavo West National Park
Everything about Tsavo West National Park is extreme and striking. The contours and variety of its land, the deep colors of desert, sky and springs, and the surprise of nearby wildlife emerging from the scrub.
The park is an immense panorama of savannah broken by dark volcanic lava beds, unexpected vistas, ancient baobab trees and lush oases fed by underground springs.
You can find Africa’s “big five” here in the dense foliage searching for game and sustenance as they have for millions of years. The famous Tsavo lions and herds of red dust elephants are unique to this land. In fact, Tsavo hosts Kenya’s largest elephant population.
Keep your eyes open for giraffe as they feast on the treetops and don’t be surprised to see buffalo, leopard and rhino as well, especially at the Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary. Some 80 of these endangered creatures live protected here.
