Kenya was the seventh safari destination, to the famous Tsavo National Park. It lies between the main Nairobi to Mombasa road and mount Kilimanjaro. We landed in Kenya and a couple hours after we were at the Tsavo. We got there around dawn and spent a night in one of the parks luxurious lodges after a delish meal at the Tsavo hotels accompanied by an entertaining dance performance by the Masai that taught us a little more about the tradition of Kenya. The 205$ on the lodge was totally worth it.
We were up by sunrise to explore the enormous park driven by a tour guide in a 4 by 4 provided by the park. The area has broad red plains whose endless acacia scrub and occasional waterholes provide sustenance to a population of elephants which is much recovered from the terrible poaching of recent decades. The tour guide drove us to the most interesting sections of the park those to the south and west. The vast wildlife here is incredible animals from lions, elephants , impala, giraffes and elephants that travelled in packs it is said that they travels in packs of their own families. The tour guide told us a story of the man eaters that were said to live in the south part of the Tsavo. They were a pair of notorious man eating lions responsible for the deaths of a number of construction workers building the railway running across the Tsavo. Their sculptures are found in an archive found in the park and it is amazing how big they were.
The Tsavo offers a variety of activities like fishing, game drives, etc. It is definitely a place to go for a long holiday like say three four days to engage in fishing and other activities. We only did the safari which was completely rewarding. Tsavo National Park should definitely be in your to do list
