Spectacular Wildlife, Landscapes And Lodges In Kenya's Tsavo
Tsavo wildlife area in Kenya consists of two national park options: Tsavo East National Park (13 747 km²) and Tsavo West National Park (9 065 km²). When combined, the two become one of the world's largest wildlife sanctuaries at a massive 22 000 km² in area.
Three rivers run through the region and they are the Tsavo River, Athi River and Galana River; exceptional wildlife viewing is on offer near these rivers.
The national parks are roughly situated halfway between Mombasa and Nairobi. Tsavo East National Park and Tsavo West are accessible by either a fly-in option or a road-based safari from either city or one of Kenya's other national parks.
The two national parks are just too far removed from all other wildlife destinations and cities to make them a viable and enjoyable road transfer destination. Spending the entire day in a vehicle is not going to be fun.
Wildlife is utterly spectacular, with over 60 mammal species on offer, and for birders, a paradise of note, over 500 species of bird have been recorded in both national parks.
The Tsavo area offers one of the more captivating safari experiences in East Africa with landscapes like no other, Africa's "Big-Five", virtually untouched by humans and numerous safari activities at some of the best safari lodges and camps available in Kenya.
Tsavo is one of the best places in Africa for safari and game viewing. The two Tsavo National Park options are home to a wide variety of wildlife, including elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs, and rhinos
Tsavo also offers some of the best bird watching in Africa, with over 500 species of birds. Visitors to Tsavo can enjoy safari drives, guided walks, and boat trips on the Tsavo River.
We would highly recommend light aircraft transfers when looking at visiting the Tsavo area and region of Kenya.
Lodges located in and around the Tsavo National Parks will most likely have access to a private airstrip within an hour's drive of the lodge.
When it comes to safari lodges in the Tsavo area, there is no shortage of amazing choices. All lodges and camps are remote, with each offering up something different, from location to lodge size to safari activities.
Our handpicked portfolio of safari lodges showcases the very best of what both the Tsavo East National Park and Tsavo West National Park have to offer.
Our current selection of the best Tsavo Lodges will grow within the next few months. We are passionate about these national parks and believe that they should be on everyone's Kenya safari itinerary.
