Tsavo Conservation Area

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 arena of arid bush which is washed by the azure and emerald meandering of Galana River.

Guarded by the limitless lava reaches of Yatta plateau and patrolled by some of the largest elephant herds in Kenya. The sight of dust-red elephant wallowing, rolling and spraying each other with the midnight blue waters of palm-shaded Galana River is one of the most evocative images of Africa.

The major areas of interest are the beautiful Aruba dam located on the north bank of the seasonal Voi River, which is visited by thousands of animals and a great game viewing destination. The Mudanda Rock, a whale –backed Rock towers above a natural dam and acts as a draw to thousands of elephants. The longest lava flow in the world- at 300 kilometers in length, the heat shimmering edge of yatta plateau is the longest lava flow in the world and an ornithological paradise that attracts migrating birds from all over the world.

The Park is home to most of the larger mammals, vast herds of dust–red elephants, Rhinos, buffalos, lions, leopards, pods of hippo, nile crocodiles, waterbucks, Lesser Kudu, Gerenuk and Hirola. The area also boasts of a prolific bird life which features 500 recorded species.
