Tsavo East National Park is one of the largest and oldest national parks in Kenya, covering an area of 13,747 square kilometers.

 It is located in the southeastern part of the country and is known for its diverse wildlife, including the "Big Five" (lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, and rhinos).

The park is characterized by a rugged, semi-arid landscape with open savannah grasslands, acacia trees, and rocky surfaces.

 It is drained by the Tsavo and Athi rivers, which join to form the Galana River.

 One of the park's main attractions is the Yatta Plateau, a 300-kilometer-long lava flow that forms the western boundary of the park.

Tsavo East is home to large herds of red-dusted elephants that enjoy rolling in the dusty soil, as well as a wide variety of other wildlife such as buffaloes, zebras, giraffes, antelopes, and over 500 bird species.

 Visitors can engage in game drives, birdwatching, and nature walks to observe the diverse fauna and flora of the park.

The park is managed by the Kenya Wildlife Service and is a popular tourist destination, known for its "wild and primordial charm".

 It is one of the less populated game areas in Kenya, offering a pristine wildlife ex

perience for visitors.
