Safari in Kenya: Tsavo East National park | Private Safari

Tsavo East National Park is among our top safari in Kenya and by far the biggest of Kenya’s parks. Tsavo East is nine times bigger than the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Most famous for its huge herds of dust-red elephants, more than 10,000 of them and the characteristically short-manned Tsavo lions. Tsavo East is 153km from Mombasa and about 2.5 – 3hrs drive to the Bachuma gate which is the 1st entrance to the park. You can never go wrong if you choose this package as part of our safari in Kenya. As well as teeming with wildlife, Tsavo East offers visitors some spectacular scenery. Some notable sights include: The Mudanda Rock which is a 1.6 km inselberg of stratified rock that acts as a water catchment that supplies a natural dam below. It offers an excellent vantage point for the hundreds of elephants and other wildlife that come to drink during the dry season.

There so many animals to be spotted along the way but the ‘Red elephant’ is commonly sighted as soon as you enter the park. The Satao camp boasts 20 luxurious en-suite tents, each with private verandahs, nestled among the tamarind trees surrounding the camp’s very own watering hole. The tents are carefully positioned to allow uninterrupted views of the visiting wildlife whilst ensuring total privacy. There are 16 tents and 4 suites. The tents interiors are simply exquisite. Game drives through out the day with breaks for lunch followed by a well-deserved afternoon rest as you wait for the temperatures to cool down before heading out for the afternoon game drives, in the cool of the afternoon a lot of animals can be seen moving around, your afternoon game viewing drives will last from16h00 – 18h00. This day you can enjoy a bush sun downer, including drinks and bitings and you wait your Dinner and overnight at Satao camp.
