TSAVO WEST NATIONAL PARK
Tsavo National Park, encompassing Tsavo East and West, is the biggest national park in Kenya occupying 21,000 square km. Tsavo's open grassland landscape and availability of water assures that one will see plenty of wildlife.
Specifically, Tsavo West National Park, located between the Mombasa-Nairobi highway and River Tsavo, was formed from volcanic activity.
The Chyulu hills, formed less than 500 years ago are located on this part of the Tsavo. Due to the formation of the hilly plateau, animal viewing can be done with much ease.
Tsavo West's bio-diversity is amazing. The landscape is a mixture of grassland and forest shrub vegetation. Thus driving and exploring the vegetation almost assures you close encounters with the following animals: lions, leopard, cheetah, zebras, giraffes, antelopes, kongoni, waterbuck, klipspringer, impala, gazelles, buffalos, and elephants.
The rhino and elephant population is very small compared to what it was in the last 100 years. Due to man's selfish activity of poaching, the black rhino is almost extinct and the situation gets worst as time goes by.
On February 28, 2001, the New York Times reported that 7 rhinos had mysteriously died in the Ngorongoro National Park, probably due to sickness. This should be of great concern to all humans, if we want to leave our children a living planet. We request you to support initiatives that invest in the education of people and the protection of wildlife.
A variety of migratory and native birds can be seen at Lake Jipe and at the Ngulia Lodge. The birds are viewed between late October and early January; they come from as far as Eastern and Western Europe. Commonly seen birds are herons, kingfishers, vultures.
Tsavo West is famous for the Mzima springs. This natural spring supplies over 50 million gallons of water a day. The water supply is distributed between the coastal towns and the Tsavo rivers -Galana and Tsavo. Amazingly, the Mzima Springs water is clear due to filtration by the Shetani lava flow.
The Shetani lava oozed down the mountain less than 200 years ago but still displays a fresh look. The water catchment is divided into two pools; here you can view hippos and crocodiles. The upper pool is occupied by the hippos and lower pool by the crocodiles. There is an underwater observation chamber that allows a good viewing of these animals as well as of fish.
