Why choose

Tsavo East National Park

The land of the Tsavo River was named a National Park in 1948. It was already such a vast territory that it had to be divided into two distinct regions, known today as Tsavo East and Tsavo West. The two parts of the park have as their border the national road that connects Nairobi with Mombasa, the Uganda railway that crosses Kenya to the nation from which it takes its name. And of course the Tsavo River itself. The only human settlement in the eastern part is the municipality of Voi. The southern border of the Park is the line that divides it from the national border with Tanzania and the Tanzanian park of Mkomazi.

Tsavo East National Park consists of a large plain, consisting mainly of savannas. Over 21,000 sq km of incredible surface area you will also see the Yatta lava plateau (290 km) formed by the eruptions of the now extinct volcano Ol Donyo Sabuk.

The vegetation consists of scrubland, grasslands - especially along the Tsavo, Athi rivers and the magnificent Galana River - and very few groups of trees in the center of the plateau. The climate is hot and mostly dry, but it is best to avoid the few rainy months because they can cause flooding here.

Activities & Accommodations
Tsavo East National Park

Not many people know that Tsavo East is also famous for archaeological excavations. Most of these sites have unearthed remains of the so-called Late Stone Age (6000 to 1300 years ago). Objects, fossil food and fossil bones were found along the banks of the Galana River, testifying to the presence of human beings who were both shepherds and traders.

Furthermore, in this part of the Tsavo park you can admire: Mount Mudanda, a high stratified rock overlooking a river where elephants love to wash and drink in groups; Lugarda waterfalls, water rapids on the Galana river; the Aruba dam built in 1952 across the Voi river, near the town of the same name.
