Tsavo East and Tsavo West

Only a two-hour drive from Hemingways Watamu, you’ll discover more than 12,000 square kilometers of open plains and grasslands full of wild animals. Famous for the man-eating lions that brought work on the railway bridge to a halt in the 1890s, the park is still home to prides of manned predators – although they are not so determined to eat their guests these days. Abounding with herds of elephant, buffalo, kudu, waterbuck, giraffe, gazelle, zebra and at least 500 species of bird, your binoculars are best placed within easy reach. Enjoy the night air under luxury canvas and awake to an azure sky, a whisper of cloud casting the faintest shadow on the ochre earth, before blazing a red dust trail as you head back to the coast.
