Camps and Lodges in Tsavo East And Tsavo West
Possibly the world’s biggest game sanctuary. On the east side roam ‘red’ Elephants, named from the color of rich earth of the area they throw over themselves. On the west are the Mzima springs where Hippo and Crocodile bathe. A model national park in geographic, animal and plant diversity situated half way between Nairobi and Mombasa – making it ideal for those wanting to include both safari and coast on their itinerary. In the evening Tsavo Sunsets span the sky filling the horizons with incredible colour. One of the great geological spectacles of Tsavo East National Park is the Mudanda Rock 24 kilometers north of Voi Safari Lodge between the Voi and Manyani Gates. This stratified rock is a water catchment area supplying a dam at its base-a congregation point during dry seasons for hundreds of Elephant, Buffalo and other game which can be viewed from a vantage poing halfway up the rock. More popular of the two is the wilderness north of Tsavo West with its fine extensive plains, lava flows, steep rocky hills and the famous Mzima Springs. A natural wonder this oasis in arid lava plain pours out daily 2,250 liters of water that has traveled 48 kilometers under the ground from the Chyullu Hills. Hippos, Crocodiles and a wide variety of fish can be seen in the crystal clear water from a sunken observation tank. Numbering over 20,000 the world’s greatest concentration of elephants are the dominant animals of this park, for decades devastating vegetation to its present scrub grassland
