Tsavo East National Park

Tsavo East is larger and more arid than Tsavo West and is less frequented. The vegetation around Tsavo East National Park is savannah grassland with thorny bushes and some swampy marshland near Voi River. The landscape is unique because of the Yatta Plateau formed from the lava that oozed from Ol Doinyo Sabuk Mountain. Only a small area of Tsavo East National Park's vast nature reserve is open to the public although new areas for human intrusion are now being added. The remainder provides a remote animal wilderness. Droughts are much more common in Tsavo East than West, and Aruba Dam built in 1952 has dried up completely at times although it covers an area of 85.4 hectares. This wilderness, seemingly so hostile, is nevertheless inhabited by a wide range of plains' game including zebra, several species of antelope among them lesser kudu and hartebeest, warthog and ostrich as well as elephant herds which plunder their way through bush and scrub to the permanent waters of the Athi.

Please note that it is forbidden to travel in an open vehicle while in the Park. Stay in your vehicle all the time. Get out only at designated areas. Off road driving is not allowed. View the wildlife such as leopard, cheetah, zebras, giraffes, kongoni, lesser kudu, oryx, the stripped hyena, serval, antelopes, ostriches, gazelles, lions, elephants, klipspringer, impala, buffalos and many more from a distance with binoculars. Birds like goshawks, red and yellow bishops, the white-headed buffalo weavers, palm nut vultures, African skimmers are also found in the park. Please note that the park has Mudanda rock, Galana and Athi Rivers, Lugard Falls which also attract visitors.
