Tsavo East, Tsavo National Park East

4.7
#1 of 41 in Parks in Coast Province
One half of one of the oldest national parks in Kenya, Tsavo East acts as the dry, flat counterpart to its wet westerly neighbor. Divided by both road and railway, the eastern side of park supports wildlife with vast plains, the Tsavo River flowing in from the west, and the Galana River creating powerful white-water rapids. See vast numbers of buffaloes, Maasai lions, endangered black rhinos, and hundreds of species of birds, and keep an eye out for red-dusted elephants playing on the water's edge. The park is also home to world's longest lava flow, stretching 290 km (180.2 mi) along the western border.

  • We have booked the Safari site. Just ask on the beach for Eugene. We have been picked up at about 5 a.m. at the hotel in Mombasa drove then 2 hours to Tsavo East. The entrance is beautifully set has directly to be the feeling in the middle of the Savannah. After our car, Safari was made suitable for it went off directly. You can drive around all day in the Park the animals roam freely and is a real must for a Kenya holiday. There are lots of animals from giraffes about monkeys to hippos. Without our guide we had not seen many animals such as a lion who has comfortably situated in the Bush so special thanks to EUGEN and our driver. Overall, it was a unique experience what I can only recommend to everyone.
