Tsavo National Park is the largest national park in Kenya, East Africa.

On April 1, 1948, the Tsavo National Park was established with a total area of ​​21812 square kilometers and was divided into eastern and western parts in May 1949 for administrative reasons. Both sides of the park are separated by the asphalt road that connects Mombasa with the capital Nairobi and the parallel railway line.

Tsavo East 

In Tsavo you come across a very special kind of wilderness; here the beauty of the East African landscape has been preserved in all its majesty. The bright red laterite earth covers the park, which is open all year round and is located 150-1200m above sea level, especially in the eastern part. The climate is warm and dry.

The vegetation here is diverse; Wild bushland, wide open savannahs, semi-arid areas, green river landscapes with gallery forests, acacias, huge baobab trees and thornbush savannas paint the picture of true Africa to the enthusiastic viewer.

The Tsavo habitat is considered a hostile environment for humans and therefore offers the best refuges for wild animals.

We meet the “red elephants” in Tsavo East NP. They get their name from the layer of red dust they cover themselves with after their mud bath to protect themselves from the sun and insects.

Other mammals such as big cats (lion, leopard, cheetah), giraffes, buffaloes, gazelles, kudu, gerenuks, waterbucks, oryx - antelopes, zebras, baboons and many more are at home. Also over 500 species of birds. Pure Africa!

Here you can observe animals in wild nature that you can hardly find anywhere else.

Camps and lodges coming soon!

Tsavo West

The landscape of Tsavo West is significantly hillier and wetter. Numerous volcanic cones protrude from the plains, and at the foot of the Chyulu Hills lies the Shetani lava field, which is still largely free of vegetation and is a contemporary witness to a long-ago volcanic eruption.

The southern area is characterized by grass savannas. The Tsavo River with its surrounding gallery forests constantly carries water. In the Ngulia area the hills reach heights of 1800 m.

KWS, Kenya Wildlife Service established a guarded Rhino Sanctuary to protect the endangered black rhinos in the area. Feel free to visit!

Another highlight is a visit to the Mzima Springs, where meltwater from Mount Kilimanjaro, filtered through lava rock, rises in a spring and collects in the lake. You may be able to spot its inhabitants, the hippos, crocodiles and fish, in the underground viewing stand.

The wildlife of Tsavo West is very diverse; in addition to the “Big Five” (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino), there are numerous other species. The animals are harder to spot here because they have better conditions to retreat in the lush vegetation. This makes your safari exciting, you just have to be patient!

The safari in the Maasai Mara was from December 04.12th. until December 07.12.2023th, XNUMX fantastic! Everything worked out perfectly. The Oloshaiki Camp is wonderful and has an idyllic location right on the river. You are looked after very attentively and the food tastes great. All game drives were great. My tour guide James was great. He knows the best places for unforgettable animal observations. A special highlight was the balloon ride. I can highly recommend this safari. I experienced pure holiday happiness. Thank you thank you thank you !!!

It's been a few years since we went on a safari with DM Tours, but nonetheless it was a very nice time, we felt very safe and in good hands from the first minute. The driver (ranger) was very friendly and was able to answer all of our questions. On the evening of the safari tour there was a bottle of champagne on a mountain with the backdrop of Kilimanjaro 🥂 at sunset there were tears in our eyes 🌞🥲 It was an unforgettable time. We will book a safari with DM Tours again next year. We're already looking forward to it.

I had the pleasure of being able to drive the elephant tour through Tsavo East, Tsavo West, Amboseli, Naiwasha and Maasai Mara for 7 days in November. It was a 4-seater jeep with the possibility of opening the roof, a very nice and German-speaking guide (Katana), 3 very great "passengers" and a lot of wonderful moments 😀 I am still totally inspired and can recommend it without exception. The contact with the office (Nadine and Aaron) was also great and I always felt well supported and looked after. In any case, I'll repeat the tour a few more times in the next few years 😀 You can't put the impressions into words or photos, you have to experience them... Thank you very much for this wonderful time and the unforgettable moments!!

We (3 adults) did a two-day safari - Tsavo East / Ashnil Aruba Lodge - in December 2023. Dreams become reality here. Our guide James was able to talk to us in German and English. He introduced us to the wildlife and answered many more questions about Kenya. Our driver George always took us safely to the best places so that we could observe giraffes, elephants, lions, zebras... up close and in peace. Thank you so much.

For us it was an unforgettable safari. Especially because of our driver Peterson. The bosses Aaron and Nicole were very nice and even let us use their charcoal tablets. A mega tour with great support. We can only recommend it.

We had a wonderful safari with an overnight stay at Ashnil Lodge. Our driver George listened to our wishes and we were able to spend a lot of time on the game drive. 🤗 We even got a bottle of 🍾 sparkling wine 🥂 at sunset 🌇. It was a great experience. We would book there again. Aaron put together this tour for us according to our wishes. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean. We just needed less food and wanted to spend more time outside in the jeep. 😆 The Jeep is in very good condition - clean and well maintained. Only tours for 4 or 2 people are offered, which is very pleasant. There was enough drinking water in the jeep and fancy aluminum bottles that we were allowed to keep as souvenirs.

Four of us went on a safari with our guide for 2023 days in October 7. In this far too short week we visited the Tsavo East and West National Parks, Amboseli and the Masai Mara. Thousands of impressions have remained with us and continue to inspire us even weeks after the safari. The organization by the DM-Tours team was first-class. Starting with the punctual pick-up from the hotel by our super guide Katana, through to the lodges and the return transport by plane and private bus. Everything worked perfectly and left nothing to be desired! We were more than satisfied! The lodges Ashnil Aruba, Ol Tukai, Salewa as well as the server and Olosahki camp were simply top. They were very well maintained and clean, the staff was extremely friendly and the food was always very good. We always felt completely at home! The highlight was our guide Katana with his jeep. His driving skills on the "corrugated iron" pistes and cross-country routes are excellent and his ability to spot even the smallest wild animals parallel to the piste is incredible! His good German also made it a lot easier when explaining about the country, the people and the animals. In the 7 days and a good 2000km in the jeep, a little friendship developed! We really hope to be able to go on a tour with him again... Big compliments to Nadine, Aaron (Denis) and the whole team, who we had the opportunity to get to know in person: you're really doing a great job! Everything, even outside of the actual tour responsibility, runs courteously, smoothly and quickly - thank you very much for that too, you are absolutely recommended! Our vacation planning now includes Kenya again!! We look forward to seeing you again! Birgit and Matthias

We already corresponded with DM Tours & Safari before our vacation and booked a safari. Everything worked out great. We received brochures and a packing list in advance, which made our preparation a lot easier. During our safari the driver explained and showed us a lot. He had spotted animals from a long distance and was able to give us a lot of information about them. At sunset there was champagne to end the day, while lions slept next door. The next day we stalked the Taita Hills area and saw even more animal species. At the end of the safari, our driver offered to visit a Masai village. We accepted the offer and it ended up being an absolute highlight. We had an unforgettable safari. Thank you very much, we will remember you.
