Wildlife HighlightsWildlife Highlights

Tsavo East National Park is very dry, with savannahs in the South merging into semi-deserts in the North. However, the animal kingdom is diversified, besides lions, buffalos and rhinos the visitor can also admire the famous "red elephants". These received their names because they dust themselves for skin care reasons with the red sand typical for Tsavo. In contrast, the landscape in the western part is overall more hilly and wet. There are several swamps and especially around Mzima Springs, which supplies Mombasa with drinking water, you will find copious green vegetation. Crocodiles and hippos can also be found here and may be observed from a close distance due to a special shelter. Moreover, the so-called "Rhino Sanctuary" is situated in Tsavo West, a fenced area under the protection of the Kenya Wildlife Service, where some of the last black rhinos of the region are nurtured. Tsavo National Park distinguishes itself for housing the big five; the park is especially popular for its lions and Kenya's largest elephant population with over 6000 animals can also be found here. Furthermore, visitors will find giraffes, leopard, gazelles, antelopes, water bucks and many more in abundance.
