About Tsavo East
Tsavo East is one of the national parks of Kenya that is well known for its unique safari experience. It has been one of the oldest parks of Kenya, since it was found in 1948. There is another side to this park which is known as the Tsavo West, the reason why it was divided into east and west was because of a railway passing between these two sides. Also, it is well known as the largest park of Kenya as it covers thousands of kilo meters of land and has almost four gates.

Tsavo East “Theatre of the wild” - The sight of dust-red elephant wallowing, rolling and spraying each other with midnight blue waters of palm-shaded Galana River is one of the most evocative images in Africa.
