    Voi Town

     

    Voi is a coastal tourist and trading town located on the edge of the Tsavo National Park which has made it popular due to the many local tourists, both local and foreign who visit the national park. It is in Taita Taveta County. The name Voi is believed to have originated from a slave trader called Chief Kivoi who settled near the Voi River about 400 hundred years ago. After his settlement, the town grew as a trade post between the local Taita people, other Kenyan tribes and Arabs. Due to this, the town has grown over the past years. Voi lies at the junction of the railway lines from Nairobi to Mombasa and Taveta. It is also located along the Mombasa road and it a popular stop over for travellers going to Mombasa. Voi town centre mainly has fuel stations, general stores, markets and shops. There are also a few hotels within the town. There is a railway station in the town.

     

    Tsavo East National Park

     

    Tsavo East National Park is one of the oldest and largest parks in Kenya at 11,747 square kilometers. Opened in April 1948, it is located near the village of Voi in the Taita-Taveta District of Coast Province. The Tsavo East National Park is divided into east and west sections by the A109 road and a railway. Named for the Tsavo River, which flows west to east through the national park, it borders the Chyulu Hills National Park, and the Mkomazi Game Reserve in Tanzania. Geography: The Tsavo East National Park can be accessed by three main gates, from Voi through the Manyani gate, from Mombasa through the Bachuma gate or from Malindi through the Sala gate. There are also several airstrips in the park that allow chartered light planes. Inside the park, the Athi and Tsavo rivers converge to form the Galana River. Most of the park consists of semi-arid grasslands and savanna. It is considered one of the world's biodiversity strongholds, and its popularity is mostly due to the vast amounts of diverse wildlife that can be seen, including the famous 'big five' consisting of masai lion, black rhino, cape buffalo, elephant and leopard. The park also is also home to a great variety of bird life such as the black kite, crowned crane, lovebird and the sacred ibis. The slightly larger Tsavo East National Park is generally flat, with dry plains across which the Galana River flows. Other features include the Yatta Plateau and Lugard Falls. Tsavo West National Park is more mountainous and wetter than its counterpart, with swamps, Lake Jipe and the Mzima Springs. It is known for birdlife and for its large mammals. It is also home to a black rhino sanctuary. Archaeology and history: Although a few Early Stone Age and Middle Stone Age archaeological sites are recorded from ground surface finds in Tsavo, there is much evidence for thriving Late Stone Age economy from 6,000 to 1,300 years ago. Research has shown that Late Stone Age archaeological sites are found close to the Galana River in high numbers. The inhabitants of these sites hunted wild animals, fished and kept domesticated animals. Because of the sparse availability of water away from the Galana River, human settlement in Tsavo focused on the riparian areas and in rock shelters as one moves west. In 19th century British and German explorers document people we now refer to as Orma and Waata during their travels through the "nyika," and generally viewed them as hostile toward their interests.

     

    Beginning in the late 19th/early 20th century, the British began a concerted effort to colonise the interior of Kenya and built a railway through Tsavo in 1898. Legend has it that "man-eating lions" terrorized the construction crews, however modern scholarship attributes the Waata for kidnapping and killing Indian and British laborers in an attempt to stop the unwanted intrusion into their territory. Inevitably, the British colonial authority bolstered security for the construction effort and the railway was built. Major attractions: The Mudanda Rock is a 1.6 km inselberg of stratified rock that acts as a water catchments that supplies a natural dam below. It offers an excellent vantage point for the hundreds of elephants and other wildlife that come to drink during the dry season. Yatta Plateau: The Yatta Plateau, the world's longest lava flow, runs along the western boundary of the park above the Athi River. Its 290 km length was formed by lava from Ol Doinyo Sabuk Mountain. Lugard Falls: Lugard Falls, named after Frederick Lugard, is actually a series of white water rapids on the Galana River. Aruba Dam: Aruba Dam was built in 1952 across the Voi River.

     

    The reservoir created by the dam attracts many animals and water birds. Mammals Tsavo East National Park is one of the world's largest game reserves, providing undeveloped wilderness homes to vast numbers of animals. A comprehensive list of the animal types found in Tsavo East Park includes the aardwolf, yellow baboon, bat, cape buffalo, bushbaby, bushbuck, caracal, African wildcat, cheetah, African Civet, dik-dik, African hunting dog, African dormouse, Blue Duiker, bush duiker, Red duiker, eland, African elephant, bat-eared fox, greater galago, gazelle, large-spotted genet, small-spotted genet, gerenuk, giraffe, African hare, springhare, Coke's hartebeest, hunter hartebeest, East African hedgehog, spotted hyena, striped hyena, rock hyrax, tree hyrax, impala, black-backed jackal, side-striped jackal, klipspringer, Lesser Kudu, leopard, lion, banded mongoose, dwarf mongoose, Egyptian Mongoose, marsh mongoose, slender mongoose, white-tailed mongoose, black faced vervet monkey, Sykes' monkey, fringe-eared oryx, clawless otter, ground pangolin, crested porcupine, cane rat, giant rat, naked mole rat, ratel, bohor reedbuck, black rhinoceros, serval, spectacled elephant shrew, bush squirrel, East African red squirrel, striped ground squirrel, unstriped ground squirrel, suni, warthog, waterbuck, common zebra and Grevy's zebra.

    Tsavo West National Park.

     

    Tsavo West National Park contains a diversity of habitats, wildlife and a mountainous scenic landscape. The Tsavo West National Park is a vast expanse of the savanna stretching from Mtito Andei, along the Mombasa-Nairobi road and south to the Tanzanian border. The North Eastern boundary along the Highway adjoins Tsavo East National Park, but Tsavo West has a more varied topography and a more diverse array of habitats than its neighbor. The park's habitats include open plains alternating with Savannah bush and semi desert scrub, acacia woodlands; rocky ridges and outcrops and more extensive ranges and isolated hills; belts of riverine vegetation; palm thickets and on the Chyulu hills, mountain forest. Tsavo-West National Park has important historic connections as a major battle ground in World War I where British and German troops battled for supremacy. The Tsavo West National park became famous through the notorious "Man Eaters of Tsavo" incident at the turn of the century, when man-eating lions were preying on the workers building the great Uganda Railway. In fact, the carriage from which they pulled a traveler is now on display in the Nairobi Railway Museum.

     

    This incident was also depicted in the popular movie "Ghost and the Darkness." Tsavo West National Park's landscape is dominated, especially off the hills by the giant baobab, a tree that is reputed to live a thousand years. After the rains, Tsavo West National Park is showered with white and pink ipomoea, the morning glory family, and the acacia trees are festooned in feathery masses of white and pink blossom. The desert rose, somewhat like a miniature baobab, produces fuchsia-pink flowers of striking beauty at almost any time of the year. Visitors can enjoy long walks along the nature trails and explore the Chaimu volcanic crater. They can also explore the Shetani Lava Flow and a variety of caves in the park. There is a quite a variety of wildlife and birdlife in the Tsavo West National park. Over 600 species of birds have been recorded. Moreover, game viewing is fairly easy. Animals include the leopard, cheetah, buffalo, rhino, elephant, giraffe, zebra, lion, crocodile, mongoose, hyrax, dik dik and porcupine. The Mzima Springs is a major attraction for visitors. This is a pool of natural spring water with underwater viewing hides from which one can observe the hippos. The Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary is another safe haven for rhinos. The park offers a number of activities: horse riding, hiking, camping, archaeological and geological safaris with caves to explore and fantastic views across the Amboseli and Tsavo plains. Tsavo West Park Lodges: Ngulia Lodge; Kilaguni Serena Lodge; Severin Safari Camp/Lodge; Finch Hattons. Campsites: Lake Jipe; Kamboya; Royal Little; Simba; Kenge; Kudu. Finally, the park offers excellent views of Mount Kilimanjaro.
