Tsavo Ost Nationalpark
Theatre of the wild
The joint mass of Tsavo West and Tsavo East National Parks forms one of the largest National Parks in the world and covers a massive 4 % of Kenya’s total land area. Tsavo East, the larger of the two lies to the east of the Nairobi – Mombasa Road, equidistant between Nairobi and Mombasa, and offers a vast and untapped area of arid bush which is washed by the azure and emerald meanderings of the Galana River, guarded by the limitless lava reaches of the Yatta Plateau and patrolled by some of the largest elephant herds in Kenya.
What to see
Elephant in Eden
The sight of dust-red elephants wallowing, rolling and spraying each other with the midnight blue waters of the palm-shaded Galana River is one of the most ecocative images of Africa.
The beautiful Aruba Dam, located on the north bank of the seasonal Voi River, is visited by thousands of animals and makes a great game-viewing desination.
This whale-backed rock towers above a natural dam, which acts as a draw to hindreds of elephant.
The longest lava flow in the world
At 300 km in length, the heat-shimmering edge of the Yatta Plateau is the longest lava flow in the world and an ornithological paradise that attracts migrating birds from all over the world.
Named after Captain Lugard, the first proconsul to East Africa, the Falls feature a bizarrely eroded neck through which the waters of the Galana River plunge into foarming rapids and crocodile-infested pools.
Spectacular Voyages of discovery
Tsavo offers some of the most magnificent game drives in the world – vast herds of dust-red elephant, fat pods of Hippo, giant crocodile and a kaleidoscope of bird life are set against a blazing backdrop of endless bush.
