Tsavo East & West National Park
* Short-haul to/from Indian Ocean beach resorts
* Tsavo East is generally flat, with vast dry plains
* Tsavo West is more mountainous and wetter
* Largest protected area in Kenya
* Classic safari experience
* Big 5 present
Best time to visit:
* Great all year round destination
* Late June to October (cool dry season) best for wildlife viewing
* Late December to March (warm dry season) best for wildlife viewing
* October to January for birdwatching
* Heaviest rainfall in April and May
In the two parks there is a wide variety of accommodation options available for all budgets, including safari lodges, tented camps and campsites.
Recommended number of days:
In order to appreciate the different environments, we feel a TWO to THREE day safari is suitable to cover both the parks.
Fika Safaris travel suggestion:
We would suggest to add on a few more days to see more of Kenya.
Tsavo East & West works well combined with Amboseli or the Samburu, Buffalo Springs & Shaba.
Or finish your holiday relaxing on an exotic beach with water activities along the Kenyan coast.
