Even though there were not that many animals to watch, I had some of my best safari experiences concerning 11 of the park's lions. It is a big park. Off road is not allowed, which is good to preserve the nature. But it also makes the distance to the animals quite big. But you can be lucky to watch lions... More

I enjoyed the time we had in this park. Many elephants and lots of birds including Somali Ostrich, sandgrouse and several types of bustards. One of the best places for a wide variety of species and it has far fewer visitors than Mara or Samburu.

Spent 3 days in this region, doing a hike and a safari. This is a spectacular region of the world! The views of the landscape breathtaking and there was a vast amount of wild animals on view.

We crossed the park to reach our lodge and it was our last day after a long safari trip. Not the best animal seeing in terms of quantity but we saw lions eating a buffalo, a cheetah trying to hunt and we nearly get ran over by a jiraffe! Toilets at the park entrances are... well, they are there.

Nice park , uncrowded and vast, few lodges and camps. Plenty of game if you just look for it , not like the zoo at Mara with 47 tourist kombis following an elephant. Flat terrain , good roads.

Take lots of drinking water it's very dry and dusty. Plenty of wildlife to see at the river. Elsewhere the watering holes have dried up. As always a brilliant experience.

Easy to get to from Mombasa. This park is host to the very amazing Zomeni Lion Hill Hotel which you should opt for. Lots of interesting animals especially elephants and a ride in the park was always a treat. Love the evening game drive as you could enjoy the sunset and the beautiful scenery. Don't forget your camera with a... More

The main reason for coming to Tsavo East was to be able to have a private viewing at the DSWT Sanctuary and have the chance to meet my foster elephant. The park was good too and very different from Tsavo West as not as hilly but did manage to see quite a few animals.

We know Tsavo East and all tented camps and lodges since several decades. Satao Camp has not got the "God´s Window View" of Voi Lodge , the luxury of Galdessa Camp or the bush site of Sentrim`s, but it`s a place of rest apart the "Safari Highways" with excelent Tent-accommodation,friendly and well trained staff, dishes with pleasant taste - and...
