Tsavo Safari

Being close to the Kenya beach makes Tsavo National Park a very popular safaridestination for tourists on beach holidays in Malindiand Mombasa. The Tsavo SafariLodges and safari camps based along the Galana River are mainly used by safari companies in Malindiwhilst those in souths of the Tsavo Park, close to Voi, are used by Mombassa tour operators. The thick bush and lack of tracks means that finding some of the more elusive animals like lion, leopard and cheetah can be extremely difficult however, the park's very remoteness can often throw up surprises since the animals tend to be less disturbed by tourist traffic. Once you get away from the more popular areas, and especially first thing in the morning, it is possible to stumble on rarities like honey badger, aardwolf and striped hyena. The abiding memory of Tsavo Eastis of a vast red landscape with many of the animal’s tinged red by the soil. Large herds of red elephants and a variety of specialized dry-country animals such as the weird looking gerenuk, dik-dik, fringe-eared Oryx and lesser kudu are all there to be found. Tsavo East was the home of the infamous man-eaters of Tsavo, a pride of lions that delayed the construction of the railway line through Kenya for several months, in the early 20th century, when they developed a taste for human flesh and started eating the workers. Their descendants can still be found today - far wilder than their more easily seen savannah counterparts, they always appear larger and more intimidating in the thick bush of Tsavo East. There are number of accommodation options available both in and outside the park, which we use depends on a number of factors. Some of the camps along the Galana River are quite stunning considering their remoteness, some of the lodges around Voi, catering for the more budget-conscious traveler, slightly less so. We tend to use Voi Safari Lodge, perched on a rocky hillside, not far from the park's main gate, with unparalleled views across the park and a permanent waterhole that attracts a constant parade of wildlife to it, or Ndololo Safari Campwhich provides a more intimate bush experience, situated close to Kanderi Swamp, again with its own waterhole. For people wishing for a bit more of an adventure we also often use Ndololo campsitewhich, for a wild campsite, is extremely well serviced and looked after by the Kenya Wildlife Service. Close to Kanderi Swamp the camp is often visited by elephant and lion as well as less problematic visitors such as waterbuck, dik-dik, impala and baboons. Whilst the two Tsavos are unlikely to provide close up encounters with vast numbers of animals, like those experienced in places like the Masai Mara, the animal sightings here do tend to be more personal and rewarding, relying as they do on far higher levels of knowledge of animal behavior and habitat. This, combined with the scenic grandeur, vastness and wildness, make Tsavo one of our favorite destinations. If you’re looking for a unique safari experience which gives something back, look no further!
