Safari from Mombasa - One Day Trip to Tsavo West
Named after the river Tsavo, flowing from west to east through the National Park, and divided by road and rail from Tsavo East, Tsavo West National Park covers a good 9.000 kilometres and offers a variety of landscapes, vegetation, and wildlife. It is quite mountainous and wet, with swamps, Lake Jipe, the four enchanting natural Mzima springs, and Shetani lava flows.
Within the abundance of wildlife, there’s a black rhino sanctuary. So you are likely to see the critically endangered eastern black rhinoceros and the rest of the big five - the maneating maneless lions, giant elephants, cape buffalos, and leopards. Tall necks of the biggest giraffes in Africa, cute bushbabies, herds of hartebeest, cheetah, wild dogs, crocodiles, and much more are just waiting for you to admire! Thanks to its topography, Tsavo West offers also excellent rock climbing opportunities.
