TSAVO WEST NATIONAL PARK
Area: 9,065 kms² Elevation:
Tsavo West is a beautiful, rugged wilderness, with fifty million gallons of crystal clear water gushing out of the under parched lava rock that is the Mzima Springs to the Shetani lava flows. The savannah ecosystem includes open grasslands, scrublands, and Acacia woodlands, as well as belts of riverine vegetation, rocky ridges and the Poacher's Lookout, from which visitors can see the teeming herds in the plains below. With attractions like elephants, rhinos, hippos, lions, cheetahs, leopards, and buffalos as well as a variety of plant and bird species like the threatened corncrake and the nearly threatened Basra Reed Warbler, Tsavo West offers some of the most magnificent game viewing in the entire world.
