Tsavo East and Tsavo West constitute the oldest and largest National Park in Kenya. This is one of the best places to see black rhino in their natural habitat, but Tsavo is most famous for its red elephants!
As with many places, Tsavo was badly hit by poaching in the 1970’s, but game numbers are recovering and it is now one of the best places to see black rhino in their natural habitat. Many rhino have been relocated back to Tsavo in recent years and here you can visit one of the projects sponsored by Save the Rhino International. Tsavo’s red elephants are the main draw for tourists, these elephants are not a freak of nature, but their colour is due to the redness of the soil, The Chyulu Hills, north of Tsavo, are some of the world's youngest volcanoes. The hills and the plains at their feet, with their ragged craters, rolling grassland and cedar forests, are very photogenic, and there are often stunning views of Mt Kilimanjaro from here. It is a beautiful unspoilt environment and in a prime game area between Tsavo and Amboseli.
