Tsavo East National Park.
Once one of the worlds greatest elephant and rhino domains, Tsavo East is a unique wilderness destination for an adventure safari in Kenya. It is land of harsh, arid desert with a surprisingly rich diversity of life. Tsavo East is the epitome of the African Bush, with a mile upon mile of arid, thorny, scrubland sweeping to the horizon. In these wild surroundings, you can view wildlife, but it is far more challenging and adventurous. In little oases along the Athi, Tiva, Tsavo and Voi rivers, a handful of tented camps offer a remote and very genuine bush experience and some of the wildest, most thrilling walking safaris in Africa.
