Tsavo West and Tsavo East were once a single National park, but were separated decades ago with the Mombasa highway and as a consequence are quite distinct national parks with different eco-systems. Tsavo East National Park is more open and flat with scattered bush, while Tsavo West has a wooded and hilly landscape, dotted with volcanic cones.
Tsavo West National Park is famous for its legend about the famous man-eating lions in the late 19th century. Tsavo West is also home to the Mzima springs, an oasis with a gushing supply of fresh water and a unique underwater observatory. You can also enjoy spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa.
The parks cover a huge variety of landscapes and diverse ecosystem. The area has a diverse variety of wildlife including elephant, buffalo, elands, giraffes, leopards, lions, and much more.

Activities include: game drives, cultural visits, bush breakfast, hikes and nature walks, halal sundowners, and much more.
