Tailor-made Tsavo Holidays

Tsavo is a land of wild, red-soil landscapes that paint its elephants in shades of rust and where maneless lions stalk their prey. In the 19th century, a pair of these majestic beasts, dubbed the notorious Tsavo man-eaters, plagued construction workers tasked with building a railway to coastal Mombasa. Today, the train line divides Kenya’s largest national park into two distinct sections: the vast open savannah of Tsavo East and the volcanic landscape of Tsavo West. The eastern portion is perhaps easiest to navigate, where sweeping plains speckled with acacia offer unobstructed views of waterbucks and buffalos, giraffes and big cats, not to mention over 500 species of exotic birds.

Head west and you’ll discover open grasslands, woods and swamps, as well as the Shetani lava flow, which spreads like spilled black ink across the landscape. Visitors are drawn to Tsavo West for its sparkling Mzima Springs, a series of underground-fed pools where territorial hippos rule the roost and crocodiles glide silently beneath the surface. An underwater viewing chamber allows you to peer beneath these wildlife-rich pools, which are surrounded by trees where vervet monkeys pick fruit. At the nearby Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary, you can see around 80 precious black rhinos, who are guarded around the clock.

Take a safari in Tsavo East or West with an experienced local guide. Our Kenya team are ready to plan your dream trip, complete with safaris and stays at the region’s top lodges.
