East and West Tsavo National Parks combine with the neighboring Chyulu Hills National Park to form one of Africa’s largest wildlife areas.
Tsavo West is dominated by magnificent hills that tower over the surrounding arid plains and shelter the crystal-clear waters of Mzima Springs, where you can sit in an underwater glass chamber to watch hippos and crocodiles.
Tsavo East, on the other hand, is flat thorn and baobab savannah – ideal for spectacular views of the large elephant herds and huge bulls that are famously always covered in red dust.
The view across the arid plains to the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro is spectacular.
