Tsavo National Park, national park, southeastern Kenya, east of Mount Kilimanjaro. The largest (8,036 square miles [22,000km²]) of Kenya’s national parks, it was established in 1948. Tsavo is the largest national park in Kenya and one of the largest in the world. Indeed, its size has led to the park being split into two sections – Tsavo West and Tsavo East – for easier administration. It’s a classic savannah park of rolling grasslands and open woodland, arid and dusty in the dry season; green and well-watered after the rains.

Such large mammals as elephants, hippos, buffalos, zebras and giraffes as well as many small animals and up to 500 different species live together on the plains or down the park.Tsavo National Park also combines well with the nearby Amboseli National Park, and with Mombasa less than 100 kms away, Tsavo is a great option for those planning a safari and beach combination holiday.
Tsavo West National Park is more mountainous and wetter than its counterpart, with swamps, Lake Jipe and the Mzima Springs. It is known for bird life and for its large mammal’s (Big 5) e.g. black rhino, Cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, hippo and Masai lion. There are also other smaller animals that can be spotted in the park, such as the bush baby, hartebeest,antelope, lesser kudu and Maasai giraffe.
Across the highway from Tsavo West is Tsavo East. Famous for its large numbers of elephant and spectacular herds of up to 1 000 buffalo, Tsavo East is a flatter, drier and more open savannah environment than its western sibling which makes game viewing easier, especially around the permanent water sources. Less developed than Tsavo West and with a genuinely remote feel to it, Tsavo East offers a very wild safari experience.
