Tsavo National Park - Kenya
For a truly majestic African safari experience, look no further than the stunning Kenyan paradise Tsavo. Split into two distinctive parts, the East Park is home to the geographically spectacular Mudanda Rock, Africa’s answer to Ayers Rock. The vast lake at its base is the perfect spot for observing Africa’s most iconic wildlife, in particular the great African Elephant. Tsavo is home to many other typically delightful African Safari animals, such as Cheetahs, Lions, Wildebeest and Rhinos to name a few. The beautiful Aruba Dam is a brilliant spot for game viewing, especially a variety of water birds, such as the striking Sacred Ibis. Lugard Falls is also a spectacular sight, a serious of white water rapids which cut through the harsh red environment. Crocodile point further down the Galana River is another wildlife treat, as you can witness the usually ferocious animals sunbathing lazily in the scorching sunshine. The more mountainous West Park is home to a large Rhino Reserve as well as the beautiful Mzima Springs, a spot frequented by Hippos.

Where is it?
Tsavo National Park is located in the south of Kenya, and the West Park runs into neighbouring Tanzania. It sits south-east of the country’s capital Nairobi, and is easily accessible from there.

What is it?
The largest National Park in the country is split into two distinct and wondrous landscapes, the desert-like lowlands of the east and the impressive mountainous highlands in the west. The Park is home to almost every type of iconic African wildlife.

Best time to visit?
June and July are the best months to visit Tsavo, as this is the coolest period and also avoids the two heavy rain seasons. The temperatures still average between 28 and 30 degrees centigrade in these months though, so do prepare to be warm!

Must See?
Mudanda Rock is not only geographically stunning, but it is also one of the best places in the world to see the magnificent Elephant in the wild. They are naturally drawn to the watering hole, amongst a plethora of other African wildlife, and the sight of them coating each other in the red dust of the landscape gives them a truly inspiring look.
