TSAVO EAST NATIONAL PARK 

This is one of Kenya's oldest and largest parks, but huge areas, mainly to the north of the Galana River, are completely closed to the public. The southern accessible area of the park includes the Kanderi Swamp and the Aruba Dam on the Voi river and has large concentrations of game including hippo, giant crocodiles lion, leopard, waterbuck, kudu, zebra and ostrich. It is also home to the largest herds of elephant in Kenya, usually covered in red dust. The park provides for excellent photography with it's spectacular views such as Mudanda Rock and Yatta Plateau.

TSAVO WEST NATIONAL PARK

The park is located approx 230kms from Nairobi off the main Mombasa-Nairobi road and has three rivers flowing through it; the Galana, the Athi and the Tsavo attracting large concentrations of game including buffalo, rhino, giraffe, zebra, lion, leopard, cheetah crocodile and many varieties of antelope.

In the northwestern corner of the park is Shetani Lava Flow, a massive lava bed created by an eruption in the Chyulu Hills where the raw cone at the centre can still be seen. Rain falling in these hills is purified as it soaks through the porous volcanic ash , running underground for 50km, resurfacing at the lush Mzimba Springs, which is one of the parks main attractions. This is haven to crocodiles and hippo and a waterhole for a large variety of other game.
