Set in the Coastal region of Kenya, Tsavo West National Park covers 7065km² but the terrain is much more varied than that of Tsavo East. It ranges from 200-1000m in altitude.
The northern sector is bush land with scattered native baobab trees and acacia shrubs. Evidence of volcanic activity dating several hundreds of years can be seen here by visiting the shetani and Chaimu lava deposits.
The A109 road Nairobi-Mombasa highway and a railway line divide it from the adjoining Tsavo East National Park. Together with neighboring ranches and other protected areas, they all comprise the Tsavo Conservation and ecological area.
A wildlife safari in this park is the best way to see Kenya’s wildlife close-up in its natural environment. Tsavo West is home to the largest population of red-ochre colored elephants as well as members of the rest of the “Big 5” of Africa (buffalo, African lions, leopards and rhinos). There is also a host of Kenyan birds and other animals, both large and small. Another attraction is the Mzima spring, one of Africa’s iconic natural Spring that is fed by hundreds of underground streams originating from mount Kilimanjaro and a main source of water supply to Mombasa.
Tsavo West has several accommodations located in distinct areas of the park notably the Kilaguni serena Lodge will be your place of accommodation.
