At a glance

Among many areas of interest in this safari include Tsavo West National including vibrant volcanic arena; molten lava that form Shetani lava spewed from the earth just about 200 years ago and its fiery fury that was thought by locals to be work of the devil. For nature lovers further would be your time since Amboseli National Park explicitly offers exploration in different habitats ranging from the dried-up bed of Lake Amboseli, wetlands with sulphur springs, the savannah and woodlands. In the east is Tsavo East National Park of 13,747 square kilometres. Situated in a semi-arid area previously known as the Taru Desert, it opened in April 1948. It’s a home to the popular legend of Tsavo lions known as the “man-eaters of Tsavo” and Lugards falls on the Galana River and other river cross this park. Large crocodiles and pythons love to travel down these waterways as it means they do not drag their incredible weight over land.
