Tsavo East National Park was established in 1948; with its 11747 square kilometres, it is the largest park in Kenya. Highlights include the Galana River, which runs through the park, and the Yatta Plateau, as well as several natural pools and dams used as watering holes by animals. Tsavo East is characterised by dry plains, thorny bushes and swampy ponds near the river. It is the ideal place to enjoy a diverse multitude of Kenyan animals, including the Big Five (lions, elephants, leopards, buffaloes and rhinos; the latter are so few in number that they are hardly ever seen), and other animals such as hippos, cheetahs, giraffes, zebras, antelopes, crocodiles, hyenas, gazelles and an endless variety of birds. Only on a safari in Kenya is it possible to see animals in their natural habitat.
The Galana Conservancy borders ontheTsavo East National Park, north of the Galana River; it consists of 60,000 acres of protected area for many of Africa’s famous species. It is an important buffer area between the National Park and the first human settlements. Unlike Tsavo Park, this area is very quiet; there is much less crowding of jeeps and tourists, with less stress for animals, exactly the same species roaming in the park. The Conservancy allows for night safaris, off-track itineraries, n walking safaris and dinner in the bush, activities that not allowed in most national parks, including Tsavo East.
