In Tsavo, you will see large herds of red elephants owing to the thin layer of red soil in the area that covers them. There are many interesting geographical features in Tsavo, such as Lugard falls and the Mzima Springs, where an underwater observatory allows you to see hippos, crocodiles and catfish. The Mount Kilimanjaro dominates the western skyline and is visible from everywhere in the plains. Due to consequence of volcanic activity in the past ten thousand years, the Tsavo West National Park is covered with volcanic cones, rocky outcrops and lava flows.


There are plenty of places to stay in the two parks. These range greatly and most of them have a water hole close to the property which draws the wild when they come to drink and cool off giving an enjoyable view by guests.
