GUIDE ON TSAVO WEST NATIONAL PARK IN KENYA
Tsavo West shares its northeast boundary line with Tsavo East National Park, and together these two parks form one of the world’s largest national parks. The terrain within Tsavo West National Park is quite varied and includes acacia woodlands, expansive savannah grasslands, scrublands, rocky ridges, volcanic remnants and riverine ecosystems. Prominent natural landmarks include Mzima Springs in the central region of the park including the Shetani lava flow on the western precinct and Lake Jipe and Chala in the southwestern corners. The nutrient-rich soil supports more than 1,000 plant species that provide wildlife and avi-fauna with food, shelter and nesting sites.
Follow in the footsteps of some of Africa’s greatest explorers and endemic tribes during your safari tour activities. Cross the vast landscape on murram roads that take you to some of the farthest reaches of the park where the animals roam amidst unspoiled territory. From the comfort and safety of your trip vehicle, your guide shows you the park’s pure wildness and the many habitats that thrive with flora and fauna. Take a break from the action-intense Tsavo West safari game drives, and enjoy a much more leisurely pace of a guided nature walk. These walks allow you to gain a deeper understanding of the smaller aspects of the park, as well as the tiny animals that scurry about in the brush.
For our more physically-fit guests, we can also arrange several hiking activities. Hiking is an excellent way to reach the heights of the park and immerse yourself in expansive views. Imagine trekking through the Ngulia Hills surrounded by sheer cliffs and jagged peaks to an elevation where raptors soar through the skies searching for their prey. We can also arrange a climb to the rim of Chaimu Crater. For less aggressive hiking, AfricanMecca recommends the winding trail to Roaring Rocks, the rejuvenating walk to the springs of Mzima and the intriguing trail around lava flow and caves of Shetani. Adventurous guests may be inclined to explore the hollows, but we do caution you as the cave environment can be dangerous with the denning of wildlife. Extreme mountaineers can vertical rock climb at Kichwa Tembo.

BEST TIME TO VISIT TSAVO WEST
We recommend the dry season in Tsavo as many animals travel to permanent water sources. The lack of rainfall means that few water and food sources are available thus the best time for a safari.

Our first safari began by road to Tsavo West. Our booking through AfricanMecca for our trip delivered everything we hoped for and more. We were extremely sad to leave Kenya, its animals, its vast open spaces, its stunning scenery..
