    Tsavo National Park

     

    Tsavo is the largest park area in Kenya, consisting of the two main parks Tsavo West National Park and Tsavo East National Park, plus Taita Hills Game Sanctuary, Chyulu Hills National Park, South Kitui National Reserve and Ngai Ndethya National Reserve. Tanzanian Mkomazi National Park borders southern Tsavo West. Inland from Tsavo West is Amboseli National Reserve, and south of Amboseli, on the Tanzanian side of the border, is Mount Kilimanjaro, surrounded by Kilimanjaro National Park. Much of the area is savanna and plains, but there are also acacia woodlands, shrubs, semi deserts, palm groves, gallery forests along the rivers, rocky hills and mountain forests. The only lake within this area is Lake Jipe in south-western Tsavo West. As to numbers of species, Tsavo may be compared to Kenya's prime park Masai Mara, and has some species that are absent in the Mara, for example gerenuk, oryx and Grevy's zebra. There are some 7,000 elephants, many lions and some rhinoceros, even though the rhino population was heavily decimated by poaching during the 1900's. More than 400 bird species have been recorded in Tsavo, including eight different hornbills, all eight East African vultures and eleven types of herons. Both common ostrich and Somali ostrich are found in the area, even though the latter only appears north of the Galana River in Tsavo East, i.e. in non-tourist areas. Birders are likely to enjoy the rich and varied bird life of Tsavo. Nice species to look for are great white and pink-backed pelican, African open-billed stork, wooly-necked stork, hadada ibis, glossy ibis, secretary bird, black eagle, long-crested eagle, martial eagle, lammergeier, palmnut vulture, gabar goshawk, pallid harrier, vulturine guineafowl, crested bustard, African jacana, three-banded plover, black-headed plover, crowned plover, two-banded courser, black-faced sandgrouse, olive pigeon, Diedrik cuckoo, great spotted cuckoo, Hartlaub's turaco, African orange-bellied parrot, rufous-crowned roller, African pygmy kingfisher, carmine bee-eater, little bee-eater, green wood-hoopoe, Nubian nightjar, African scops owl, African dusky flycatcher, African paradise flycatcher, isabelline wheatear, Retz's helmet-shrike, black cuckoo-shrike, red-tailed shrike, red-billed firefinch, blue-capped cordon-bleu and amethyst sunbird.

     

    Tsavo West

     

    Tsavo West has more visitors than the other parks in the area, and has a good road network for game driving. The Tsavo River, which is one of two permanent rivers, passes through northern Tsavo West, attracting wildlife. Mzima Springs are also found in this area, offering clear water and observation points below surface level, where you may see fish and hippos. The route between the springs and Tsavo Gate are considered the best game driving area. Just west of the springs is the Chaimu Crater, a volcano crater that you may visit on foot. The Shatani Caves north of the river can also be visited. Lake Jipe in south-western Tsavo West has huge reed beds and a rich bird life. You may see for example pied kingfisher, palmnut vulture, black heron and African skimmer.

     

    Tsavo East

     

    Tsavo east is drier than Tsavo West. Much of the park is closed for tourists, who are restricted to the areas south and west of the Galana and Athi Rivers. Athi, which extends from Nairobi, joins with the Tsavo River from Tsavo West and continues towards the Indian Ocean as the Galana River. The areas north of Galana and Athi are mainly dry shrubs and plains. The main attractions of Tsavo East are the Lugard Falls, found just east of where the Tsavo and the Athi join, the Mudanda Rock, where a natural permanent dam attracts wildlife during dry seasons, and the Yatta Plateau, which is one of the world's largest lava fields. The areas south of and along the Galana River are usually the best for game driving.
