The vast open plains of Tsavo National park are what everyone imagines when dreaming of a safari in Africa. Made up of Tsavo West, Tsavo East & Chyulu National Park, Tsavo is large and secluded offering peace & quiet and privacy for visitors. The famous elephants covered in a thin layer of red Tsavo dust are a common sighting, and volcanic activity over the last 10,000 years has formed a geological landscape of huge lava flows, volcanic cones and rocky outcrops. Classic old-fashioned luxury safari camps remain in Tsavo making this the ultimate elegant luxury safari experience in Africa.

WHEN TO GO?

The best time to visit Tsavo is August to October, when the weather is dryer and wildlife gathers at the waterholes to drink. However game viewing is good all year round because of the vast open spaces. January/February is also a great time to visit but can be very hot and humid.

TOP ACTIVITIES

Game drives on these vast open plains offer amazing sightings of lion, red dusty elephants and all of the Big 5. Self-drive safaris can be done in the park, with good signposts and maps, but all provisions must be taken along with you including water and petrol. Mzima Springs is a must to visit; a beautiful oasis in the dusty plains where hippos love to swim and bathe.

WHERE NEXT?

Tsavo Plains an be combined easily with Mombasa for an East African beach & bush experience. Follow Tsavo with a trip to the Masai Mara for the ultimate great migration experience. Situated half-way between Mombasa and Nairobi, charter flights make use of the Tsavo Airstrips. From Nairobi or Mombasa catch one of the readily available flight connections on to East or Southern Africa to continue your African experience.
