The two Tsavo National Parks and the adjoining Chyulu Hills National Park make up one of Africa's largest wildlife areas. Tsavo West has spectacular scenery with soaring mountains and the famous Mzima springs. Kilimanjaro is visible on a clear day. Tsavo East by contrast, is a plateau of open thorn bush country with wonderful gaint baobab trees, where Yatta Plateau, the world's longest lava flow, 300km long, dominates the skyline.
In Tsavo you'll see large herds of red elephants, contrary to myth they are not a separate sub-species but are covered by the thin red dust found in Tsavo. There are many interesting geographical features in Tsavo, including the Lugard Falls and the Mzima Springs, where an underwater observatory allows you to view the hippo, barbels and crocodiles. Mount Kilimanjaro dominates the western horizon and is a spectacular sight from across the plains. Following recent (in the last ten thousand years or so) volcanic activity, Tsavo West National Park is covered in volcanic cones, rock outcrops and lava flows, the most spectacular being Shaitani.
A Tsavo plains safari is the ideal destination for people who seek solitude and privacy as well as the chance to explore the wilderness. With its proximity to Mombasa it is also an ideal safari for those staying on the coast or wanting to visit the coast after their safari.
