One of the world’s largest national park wildernesses

Boasting spectacular varied landscapes and abundant wildlife, Kenya's largest national park is divided into Tsavo East and Tsavo West. Explore Tsavo West's rugged terrain and perhaps visit the underwater viewing chamber at Mzima Springs, source of much of Mombasa's water supply and often frequented by hippos and crocodiles. Venture deep into the park and you may not encounter another vehicle all day. In contrast, Tsavo East's vast expanse of open savannah offers the opportunity to see impressive herds of elephants and spot magnificent lions. Easily combinable with a beach stay in Mombasa.
