Tsavo is nearly 22,000km2, being the largest national park in Kenya and one of the largest in the world and is located in Coast Province of Kenya in between Nairobi City and Mombasa. The park was split into two (Tsavo East National Park & Tsavo West National Park) due to the railway going from Mombasa to the interior of Kenya.
- Tsavo East Features:
- The slightly larger Tsavo East is generally flat, with dry plains across which the Galana River flows.
- Other features include the Yatta Plateau and Lugard Falls.
- Tsavo West Features:
- Tsavo West National Park is more mountainous and wetter than its counterpart, with swamps, Lake Jipe and the Mzima Springs. It is known for bird life and for its large mammal’s e.g. black rhino, Cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, hippo and Masai lion.
- There are also other smaller animals that can be spotted in the park, such as the bush baby, hartebeest, lesser kudu and Maasai giraffe.
