Tsavo National Park – “The Land of Lava, Springs and Man-Eaters” - 3 Days

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • A remarkable visit to the “The Land of Lava, Springs and Man-Eaters” – Tsavo NP which is home to the largest population of red-skinned elephants as well as to members of the rest of the “Big 5” African animals, namely buffalos, lions, leopards and rhinos?
  • Apart from the wildlife, Tsavo offers spectacular tourist attraction sites such as:
    • The sight of fifty million gallons of crystal clear water gushing out of the under parched lava rock that is the Mzima Springs
    • The Shetani lava flows and the caves- “Shetani” means “devil” in Swahili language. The lava flows date back to a hundred years ago and local people believe that it was the devil emerging from the earth, hence the name Shetani.
    • Ngulia Hills that rise more than 600 meters above the valley floor and to a height of over 1800 meters above sea level; this jagged ridgeline ranks among the prettiest of all Tsavo landforms.
    • Lake Jipe that lies on the southwestern end of the park and is reached by a dusty track from Taveta. The lake is a habitat to hippos and crocodiles and boats can be hired at the campsite to take you hippo and crocodile spotting on the lake.

among other attractions.

Tsavo West offers one of the most magnificent game viewing experiences in the world. It boasts of being a home to a vast species of animals such as elephants, rhinos, cheetahs, leopards, buffalos and diverse bird and plant species such as the majestic baobab trees. It covers 7065 kilometers and its altitude ranges from 200-1000m. Irrespective of the plenty wild animals in the park, you’ll have to work harder and be more patient in order to see the animals as the foliage is denser and higher here.
