Main Info

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.

    What Others Say About Us

    I recommend Simba Paka Safaris. We had a great experience at the Maasai Mara with our guide who was extremely knowledgeable and managed to help us see all the animals that we wanted to see. Diana B
    I did the 4 day Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru safaris. From start to finish, Simba Paka Tours was professional, reactive, and great at communicating all facets of the trip. I did the mid-range tour and Paul organized my hotels on arrival and departure, transfers, and the best tour guide possible. If you do this tour and you get Johnny Jackson as a guide, you will be very lucky. Hellen W
    Amazing Safari! We did a Safari with Paul and his staff, 5 days in Masai Mara. It was a wonderful experience, that allowed us to see all the Big Five thanks to our guide's ability! Paul is very gentle and professional. I recommend it very much for a unique experience. Sabina F
    Mr. Paul is a very friendly and just a gentlemen person. We did a 7-day Kenya safari and we not only saw the big 5. Following advice from Paul from Simba Paka Safaris we went to the following national parks; Nakuru, Masai Mara, Amboseli, and Lake Naivasha. Bhagwan S
    We did a 7-day Safari from Masai Mara over Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha to Amboseli. First of all, our driver/guide Francis was wonderful! He was super engaged, always attentive, and made sure we got the best possible views and pictures. When we asked for something, he immediately ensured it was sorted out. Max F
