AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN TSAVO EAST WITH AFRICANMECCA
We recommend Tsavo East National Park to our guests because the location offers an inquisitive East African bush and beach holiday experience. Even the most discerning and experienced guests find a landscape that both enchants and excites. Being out in the wilderness ignites your imagination! Travel in the footsteps of early explorers, and feel the same awe and inspiration that only Africa can give you!
Because Tsavo East plays an important role in wildlife conservation especially the rehabilitation of orphan elephants, there are only fewer accommodations in strategic locations compared to Masai Mara National Reserve, with the remainder of the land reserved for the animals to freely enjoy lives without fear of human threats and encroachment (read more on where to stay in Tsavo East).
Within these treasured lands, though, are some of the parks most breathtaking and distinct attractions – Yatta Plateau, Athi-Galana-Voi-Tsavo Rivers, Mudanda Rock, Aruba Dam, Lugards Falls and many, many others.
Viewing large mammals is always a priority of our guests, and game drives are the best way to traverse the park’s vastness to locate these animals. The drive excursions are offered in the early morning and late afternoon when the animals are most active. An expert AfricanMecca guide takes you to strategic vantage points where you see the largest groups of fauna and most engaging behaviors.
You will come across the mane-less and relatives of the man-eater lions of Tsavo, mighty elephants with huge tusks, herds of buffalos, bachelor impala herds, dual-tone zebras, graceful giraffes, oblivious warthogs and more. You experienced guide also adds value to your game drive by sharing personal stories, local folklore, native traditions, conservation information and much more insight.
For most AfricanMecca guests, we recommend game drives near the Voi River and Aruba Dam all the way to Galana River and Kanderi Swamp. We also arrange full day game drives to other varied locations in the park for our guests who desire an action-adventure tour in Tsavo East National Park. With more than 500 bird species recorded at the park, birdwatching is a discerning activity amongst our visitants.
A knowledgeable naturalist escorts you to riverine and other aquatic locations where you have the greatest chance to see resident and migratory species. Some of the most common avi-fauna are red and yellow bishops, African skimmers, white-headed buffalo weavers, goshawks and palm nut vultures.
Although you may see varied fauna during your game drives, these nature walks allow you to view any traversing fauna from a unique perspective and without startling it. We can also arrange a more intimate bush walk to allow you the time to study the smaller ecosystems of the park.
Your guide explains the ecological significance of plants, insects, small mammals, amphibians, reptiles and much more. You also learn first-hand how to track animals using prints, scat and more. Your guide’s keen eye is also trained to spot broken branches, nesting sites and other subtle indications of animal presence and movement. Bush walks are only offered by limited accommodations in Tsavo East.
Lastly, we highly recommend that our guests visit the Daphne Sheldrick Orphanage Rehabilitation in Ithumba located in the northern expanse of Tsavo East during their elephant engrossed vacation. This pioneering body runs under the banner of David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi that conducts important elephant rescue missions, and you can even see many of the elephant calves that are being rehabilitated. You may wish to extend your contribution beyond your time in Africa by adopting one of the tiny pachyderms. An authorized appointment and approval will be required via the trust body.
