Tsavo East is the largest national park in Kenya covering about 21,000 Km square, it is in fact one of the largest parks in the world.. it is divided into two by the Mombasa – Nairobi highway, to Tsavo East and Tsavo west National Parks.
Main features to be seen here are the Lugard’s Water falls, Mudanda Rock, Yatta Plateau, a high rise land seen from the main road. It is at this area that poaching of elephants was at it’s worst during the 1970s, but now the herds are recovering well. The Kanderi swamp is home to a wide variety of wildlife. This is the drier side of the park with the Galana River as the main water source. The source of the river is the formation of two rivers, Tsavo River and Athi River.
Tsavo West covers an area of over 21,000 square kilometers. This park has some of the most dramatic scenery of all the Kenyan national parks, more so than Tsavo East which consists more of open savannahs. The landscape consists of volcanic hills, sweeping areas of savannah.
Tsavo West has large populations of elephants, hippos, leopards and zebras. Lions are present too, but they are hard to spot. The information centre at Kilaguni lodge usually has up-to-date information on the whereabouts of lion and cheetah prides
At the Mzima Springs, there’s a pool full of hippos and crocodiles. Near the Ngulia Safari Lodge is also a hippo pool. Hippo and crocodile spotting is also possible by hiring a boat and getting on Lake Jipe, at the campsite there.
The Chaimu Crater is a viewpoint high up, from where you have a stunning view over the park. Eagles, buzzards and falcons can be seen there flying over the park.
Some 50 black rhinos, as well as large numbers of elephants and buffaloes, can be seen in the Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary, which covers a fenced area of 105 square kilometres within the park
