Tsavo East National Park - Kenya


Tsavo East National is famous for it's huge herds of elephants that are colored red as a result of the color of the soils in the park

Tsavo East National Park is home to big game including large herds of Buffalo

Tsavo East National Park is one of Kenya's oldest and largest parks: covering about 40 per cent of the total area of all national parks. Its beautiful landscape and proximity to the Coast make it a popular safari destination.

Tsavo East National Park is one of the world's leading biodiversity strongholds, with bushy grassland and open plains alternating with savannah and semi-arid acacia scrub and woodlands. Green swathes cross the park where river banks give rise to lush vegetation. North of Galana is a true wilderness. Leading tour guides offer private safaris across this area. Camel safaris are available.

Tsavo East National Park as a safari destination is recommended for photographers with its fabulous light and fantastic views, especially the Mudanda Rock and the Yatta Plateau, the world's largest lava flow. Lugard Falls on the Galana River are remarkable for the shaped water-worn rocks. Game includes: elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, crocodile, waterbuck, kudu, gerenuk and zebra. Aruba hunter's hartebeest, with its lyre-shaped horns, can also be seen. Home to some of the largest herds in Kenya, the elephants glow red after dust baths, blowing the vivid red dust through their trunks over their bodies.

About 500 bird species have been recorded in Tsavo East National Park including ostrich, some migratory kestrels and buzzards which stop at Tsavo-East during their long flight south.
