Vast but sparely populated
Overall rating
3/5

Visited both Tsavo East and Tsavo West. They are quite vast, but sadly not a wide variety of animals are present. You see plenty of elephants and zebras, some giraffes, and that's almost it! We spent 2 days and only saw 2 lions in Tsavo East on our very last hour after a very frantic search for them (our guide had been told where to go and look for them!). There was the occasional monkey and one buffalo. This is all over 2 days! If you really want to see animals go to Maasai Mara, Amboselli, etc.

It is huge area with few tourists, but also animal are quite invisible. Nice to be alone with sun and nature and enjoy peace and red landscape.

Buffaloes and elephants gathering at the water hole and the leopard chomping on a leg of lamb on the premises of the Ngulia Lodge.

Tsavo West is enormous. In December, the animals are quite scattered, so it seemed like we had to do a lot of driving to see the animals.
The scenery is excellent.

Because of its terrain makes it difficult to find that many animals, unlike some other parks. They are there and you will see them but not in the quantity like The Mara. Mzima springs worth a visit

We did not see as many animals in this park as the others because the park offers so many more hiding places for the animals but it was at Tsavo when we encountered the leopard which completed our big 5!

This was our last park and it was so different from the others. It is huge so finding the animals can be a challenge. However, this is where a leopard was trotting down the road in front of us so we got a good look. Seeing the lava fields and the spring with the hippos and crocodiles in the clear water was great. The lodge was a treat since the cape buffalo and elephants came to the watering hole just off the patio and the hotel feeds the leopards. Glad we went to this one.

Loads of elephants, giraffes, chhetas, and many more. The landscape beautifully varies.

Not as much to see but saw hyenas here that we didn't see elsewhere.
