Tsavo West was huge but didn't seem to have as much wildlife as Tsavo East. We did a lot of driving and probably only saw a third as much wildlife. Still a beautiful place though.

Thick brush made it difficult to see wildlife, but the views of the mountains and Mt Kili at sunset were incredible!

Ride through while in the train to Mombasa. Saw animals from a distance but didn't get a real feel for the park.

Many animals in a interesting landscape.
Animals are some times difficult to watch because there are many bushes and trees. Sometimes we've seen them after we passed them.
We've seen zebras, ostriches, elephants, giraffes, buffalos, hyenas, hippos and crocodiles (at Mzima Spings). And a lot of birds.
We has a very beautiful lodge inside the park (Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge) with its own water hole. So we could watch several animals at the evening from the balcony of our rooms or the bar.
So many red elephants! They seem to be thriving as there were many small ones. A lone lioness and the wide swept savanna were highlights.

great animal viewing from the hotel, but disappointing game drives
Sitting at the restaurant/bar at our lodge, we could spend all day watching animals come and go from the watering hole. This was the highlight of our visit in this park. Our drives were very disappointing with brush so dense, that animal sightings were rare. We booked Tsavo west in hopes of seeing Mount Kilimanjaro and seeing Rhinos. We didn't see either. I would plan extra time in the Masai Mara instead of Tsavo West.

Tsavo West is very scenic and typically dry African bush with the characteristic red Tsavo soil. However wildlife is harder to see here so anyone expecting a Maasai Mara wildlife experience will disappointed. The plus side is you can get an authentic African bush feel here.

Tsavo West is quite vast. And wildlife is scattered making it not easy to spot. Shetani Lavaflows and the nearby extinct volcanoes make the trip there worth it.

Plenty of wildlife to see here still with great sightings and lodges.
