Wildlife & Safaris

Unlike its eastern counterpart, Tsavo West National Park is much more wooded and hilly, with evidence of its volcanic history in dramatic black rock formations. Most of the development and lodges are in the northern sector. The scenery is spectacular with rocky landscapes, lush grass, and dense vegetation. Don’t skip a visit to Mzima Springs, a natural spring water pool with underwater viewing hides where you can watch hippo and their antics.
