Tsavo East National Park is huge, a massive flat plain broken only by the meandering Galana River. The park has stunning views over the plains of African savannah that includes the Yatta Plateau, the largest lava flow in the world, Mudanda Rock, which resembles a smaller version of Ayers Rock, and the incredible Lugard Falls.

This vast reserve is mainly a plain of flat bush dotted with the bizarre shapes of monstrous baobabs. Large herds of ‘red’ elephants are a characteristic sight - ‘red’ due to the rich colour of the earth they throw over themselves

Tsavo East National Park is credited with one of the world's leading biodiversity strongholds. From red brown rivers surrounded by green grass and doum palms, to the endless plains covered in red dust, with a single surviving acacia tree, the scenery is constantly changing.

Tsavo receives very little rain, and the brilliant sunshine and fantastic scenery make it perfect for those interested in photography.
