Tsavo East National Park
Tsavo East National Park Once one of the world’s greatest elephant
and rhino domains, Tsavo East remains a unique wilderness
destination - a land of harsh, arid desert housing a surprisingly
rich diversity of life. Together with Tsavo West, this park is one
of the world’s largest protected areas; with the neighboring Chyulu
Hills, the twin Tsavo's cover an area of 21,754 square kilometers -
more than 450 square kilometres larger than Wales.
Unlike Tsavo West, Tsavo East is the epitome of the African bush,
with mile upon mile of arid, thorny scrubland sweeping to the
horizon. In these wild surroundings, wildlife viewing is far more
challenging - but often far more rewarding. In little oases along
the Athi, Tsavo and Voi rivers, a handful of tented camps
offer a remote and very genuine ‘back to bush’ experience - and some
of the wildest, most thrilling walking safaris anywhere in Africa.
