Kenya’s the largest National Park

Tsavo National Park

Tsavo national park is Kenya’s the largest and has been split in two, Tsavo East and Tsavo West. The parks are seperated by the Mombasa/Nairobi road. The park is very popular with those wishing to combine beach and bush and other attractions nearby include Amboseli National Park and Mt Kilimanjaro. Of the two Tsavo East has more open savannah but Tsavo West is the more beautiful. Thanks to the legend of its man eating lions Tsavo was famous long before it became a Park. 500 bird species have been recorded in the area.

The parks form together one of the biggest wildlife parks in the world, as both cover an area of about 22.000 km2. Tsavo East is most famous for it’s big herd of buffalo and beautiful orange soil.

Just as in Tsavo West, it is in Tsavo East allowed to do night game drives as well. Sometimes it can take a while before you see an animal, but it is definitely worth the wait! The reward will hopefully be a leopard. This park is ideal for a short safari when you stay in Mombasa. 

Tsavo East has in contradiction to Tsavo West much more wide, open and dry plains. Due to the Galana River this park is very attractive to wild animals. The famous Big Five is living in this park. Other animals you may come across are giraffes, zebras, antelopes and different species of monkey. Also, many species of bird live in Tsavo East, as over 500 different species are registrated. 

Best time to travel to Tsavo National Park

Best time to visit Tsavo East & West National parks are January and February, as well as from June to September. It can be quite wet between March and May as this is the heavy rainy season.


Tsavo East has all of the Big 5 (lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino) as well as giraffe, hippo, zebra, wildebeest, kudu, gerenuk, bat-eared fox, hartebeest and more. The densities in Tsavo West are less than in the East, but you can still see the same animals.
