About Tsavo National Park

Tsavo National Park is a combination of two parks namely the Tsavo East National Park and Tsavo West National Park that came to separation after the construction of the railway line.

A combination of both the East and West sectors of Tsavo National Park make Tsavo National Park the largest national park in Kenya 22000km2 located in the coast province of Kenya in the center of Nairobi city and Mombasa in the southwestern part of Kenya.

Tsavo East National Park occupies 13747 km2 of Tsavo national park and it was gazetted in 1948. The eastern side of the park is a semi-arid area and most of the time it is dry, a fact that has kept the grounds flat and the savanna grasslands short which makes it easier to view the wildlife as it tries to shy away in the plain grounds.

Other attractions found in Tsavo West National Park include: Mzima Springs famous for hippos and crocodiles, Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary which is home to several of Kenya’s endangered black Rhinos, Shena Lava flow made out of the frozen lava forming different caves that are tourist destinations in Kenya.

The Masai people are extremely attached to wildlife and this is portrayed in their way of living, the food they eat, the cattle keeping, their kind of entertainment, the style of their homes, and their burial ground among others. The Masai people completely rely on the cattle for survival; they get their food from pastoralism like milk and meat.
