Tsavo East National Park is one of the oldest and largest parks in Kenya at 13,747 square kilometres.
Situated in a semi-arid area previously known as the Taru Desert it opened in April 1948,
and is located near the town of Voi in the Taita-Taveta County of the former Coast Province.
It is split into Tsavo West and Tsavo East by the main Mombasa to Nairobi highway.
The slightly larger Tsavo East is predominantly flat with dry plains, while Tsavo West is more mountainous and wetter than its counterpart.
Tsavo East is huge.
Nine times bigger than the Masai Mara.
It is famous for its large herds of dust-red elephants, cheetah and short-maned Tsavo lions.
Wildlife densities, however, are lower than in other areas of the country, so perhaps isn't a place to simply tick off the Big 5.
