Tsavo East National Park

Tsavo East consists mainly of flat, open savannahs without dense vegetation giving it's visitors better options for wildlife viewing – for many the main reason to go on a safari. Typical of the Eastern park is the magnificent red-brown color of the earth and roads, and the lonely baobab trees on the savannah plains. Of interest in this park include the Yatta Plateau, with 290 kilometers the world’s longest lava flow, which runs along the western border of the park. The Lugard Falls, named after British colonial administrator Frederick Lugard, is actually a series of rapids on the Galana river.

In general, a lot of animals gather around the waterhole at Voi Safari Lodge, at the Kanderi Swamp and at the Aruba Dam across the Voi river.

Waterbucks, kudus and dik-diks are common along the banks of the Galana river, one of Kenya’s biggest rivers which flows through the park. At Crocodile Point, you can see hippos and crocodiles. Elephants are mainly present in the southern part, and during the dry season they often gather at Mudanda Rock.

Pretty unique is the population of hirola antelopes, which has been decimated during the last decades by poachers. Tsavo East now harbors a quarter of the total Kenyan hirola antelope population of about 500. There are also some 50 black rhinos in Tsavo East.

Furthermore, the park is home to over 500 bird species, among which are buzzards, kestrels, weaver birds, starlings, herons, secretary birds, kingfishers and ostriches.
