One of the highlights of our trip to Kenya, was going on a safari to Tsavo East National Park.
It is one of the oldest parks in Kenya. This park is located in the South East of Kenya near the town of Voi in the Taita-Taveta District of Coast Province.
Tsavo East National Park is one of the largest national parks in Kenya that covers 13,747 square kilometres.
Why Did We Chose Tsavo East National Park?
Tsavo East National Park is a home to the Big 5 (buffalo, elephant, lion, rhinoceros and leopard).
There are also diverse Kenyan wild animals which includes the large families of giraffes, gazelles, hartebeests and zebras. Indeed, this is what takes the majority of tourists to Tsavo East National Park .
For us, the main reason why we chose it, was its close proximity to the North Coast beaches. It is close by other tourist attractions around Kenyan coast region.
Certainly, Tsavo East National Park is an ideal safari destination for those who would like to combine a beach holiday and a safari!
