This is a park with a whiff of legend about it, first for its famous man-eating lions in the late 19th century and then for its devastating levels of poaching in the 1980s. Despite the latter, an African safari to Tsavo is still plentiful in wildlife, though you’ll have to work a little harder for it as the foliage is generally denser and higher here than the open plains of the Mara. Pair this with Tsavo National Park’s wilderness and dramatic scenery, however, and you get one of Kenya’s most rewarding parks.
