A trip to Africa would not be complete without visiting the Tsavo National Park in Kenya. This national park, which covers approximately 21,000 square kilometers, is the biggest game sanctuary in Kenya. This park is split into East and West Tsavo National Park. East Tsavo is where you’ll want to arrange your safari.

Elephants are among the most numerous attraction in East Tsavo, but you’ll see many other wild African species as well.

It is easily accessible by road, and you can fly in by light aircraft to one of many different airstrips. This is a good way to access the more remote safari camps.

A few of the well-known places to visit in Tsavo East include the Yatta Plateau, which is one of the worlds longest lava flows, the spectacular Lugard Falls, Mudanda Rock which overlooks a well-used watering hole, and the Aruba Dam on the Voi River.

Tsavo East has several tented camps, including Galdessa, Cottars, Satao, and Sobo, all of which make great stopping off points on any Kenya safari. Tsavo East also has a lodge: the Voi Safari Lodge, if you or some of your party don’t wish to sleep in a tent.

The numerous animals you may well see in Tsavo East includes:

Antelopes, gazelles, buffalo, elephant, giraffe, hippopotamus, hyrax, rhinoceros, warthog, zebra, aardwolf, cheetah, hyena, jackal, leopard, lion, mongoose, otter, and baboon, just to name a few.

I’ve included a video about some of the different animals you’ll likely encounter.

After reading this article and watching this video you should have a good idea of what a Kenya Safari would be like, and whether it is right for you. If you’ve been on one of these safaris already please leave a comment telling me a little bit about your experience!
