Tasvo West National Park

Tasvo West National Park

Overview

Tsavo West National Park is located on Kenya's southern periphery with Tanzania and is about 200 km south West of Nairobi. Adjoining Tsavo West, this combined park is one of the world's greatest national parks. The West and West parks are accessed by the Mombasa/Nairobi road, and both can be easily reached from Mombasa.

Tsavo West offers a variety of scenery; from bogs and springs to harsh terrain including dormant volcanic cones, to flowing fields and angled rocky outcrops. Wildlife can be difficult to spot because of the thick cover in places. In May 1948, a month after its creation as the Tsavo National Park, it was divided into West and West for administrative purposes. At 21,812 square km, Tsavo National Park is the largest park in Kenya. Named after the Tsavo River which flows from west to West, the park is seen as one of the world's best biodiversity repositories. It is the main Kenyan park that both allows night driving experiences and also one-day safaris. It is known for its wide ranging birdlife and for its enormous portfolio of wildlife including the black rhino, Cape bison, elephant, leopard, hippo and lion. There is also a range of grazing fauna including hartebeest, lesser kudu and giraffe.
