Thinking of adventure? Think Tsavo National Park

Visited: Jan 2016 Reviewed: Feb 25, 2016

While visiting Tsavo East and West for three days, we were really satisfied with the whole journey, the guide we used was very professional and knew a lot of the animals. The driver always drove good and secure. They took good care of us. We were also very satisfied with the lodges. Tsavo is a really exiting park and we promised ourselves that we will have to go back again soon.

Unexplored wilderness

Visited: Aug 2008 Reviewed: Feb 12, 2015

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 astoundin... read more

Tsavo National Park East Travel Guide

Visited: Sep 2014 Reviewed: Dec 16, 2014

Inside the park itself, Voi Rest House provides accommodation or, more commonly, is used as a lunch pit stop for the safari jeeps. It's a busy place at these times and there can be hundreds of people arriving fairly close to each other. Hotel provides an all you can eat buffet for this service.

Officially, this is outside the Tsavo NP and is on the route from Vo... read more

Wow!!!!

Visited: Oct 2013 Reviewed: Oct 13, 2014

We just fell in love with Tsavo West. The arid scenery and the wildlife was off the charts. My next time in Kenya, a huge amount of it will be in Tsavo. We stayed at the Kilaguni Serena and the view was mind blowing. I can't say enough about this massive park. And no crowds which was a huge bonus. Read more

The twin parks

Visited: Jun 2014 Reviewed: Jul 16, 2014

Tsavo east and west together form the largest wilderness reserve.
One of Tsavo's most interesting geographical feature is the Lugard falls where white water rages through a series of spectacular rock formations.
Not forgetting the volcanic Mzima springs, these natural springs produce 50 million gallons of fresh sparkling water daily.

These two parks are beauti... read more

Once a man-eaters home

Lisa
Visited: Sep 2006 Reviewed: Mar 07, 2014

The Tsavo National Park remains Kenya's largest and also one of the oldest. Once a mega park, it was later divided into West and East. The boundary lies closely along the Mombasa - Nairobi highway. The west remains the busiest through out the year. It bears the history of man-eating lions where many Indians were killed as they constructed the Kenya-Uganda railway. ... read more

Visited: Apr 2013 Reviewed: Dec 24, 2013

The journey started from the Kenyan Capital Nairobi through Nairobi-Mombasa Highway to Mtito-Andei town. As I entered the park I was welcomed by thickets of Acacia trees. The roads here are not tarmacked but they are smooth.
I stayed at Serena Kilaguni Lodge where I had booked my reservation for two days stay.
The top attraction here is the Mzima Springs. It is ... read more

Tsavo East Safari!

My second safari in Kenya was along Nairobi Mombasa Highway to the small town of Voi, home to the Vast Tsavo National Park.

The wildlife that one can see is not much there, a few birds but a lot of tourists come to enjoy beautiful scenery.
It was the first time I saw a rhino and I enjoyed the unusual experience. I spotted a number of local lions, which apparent... read more

Sham

An early morning drive from Kenya’s capital Nairobi, saw us in the Tsavo National Park. Prior to our visit, we had been told stories of the ‘man eating’ lions of the Tsavo, dating back to the colonial period, during which foreigners were constructing a railway line across the park. In my wildest dreams, I was not prepared for the rugged terrain within the park, and... read more

Rugged, expansive park

Visited: Jul 2009 Reviewed: May 10, 2013

The landscape in Tsavo is just breath-taking - incredibly expansive and simply amazing views. I think of this park as somewhat more rugged than some of the other Kenyan parks; however, there are four natural springs that are found there - the most famous being Mzima Springs. For this reason, the park can offer a lot of diversity. Where the landscape can be rugge... read more
