“This park is one of the greatest wildlife spectacles that this remarkable country has to offer” - Topcats Safaris

Unexplored wilderness

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, massive pods of hippos and vast herds of elephants that can often be seen swimming between the reed islands that lie just offshore from the Kenyan shore. Chyulu Gate campsite, in the north of the park, makes an ideal first stop; and from there, a single day’s driving will take you to the Kenya Wildlife Service bandas on Lake Jipe.
