Tsavo West National Park - Kenya
With a spectacular view of mystical Mount Kilimanjaro, and easy access to the wild attractions of Tsavo West National Park, Voyager Ziwani Safari Camp offers a tranquil retreat in one of the wildest places left on Earth. Located on a private 30,000-acre farm on the western edge of Tsavo, the camp sits on a secluded dam on the Sante River - home to turtles, crocodiles and hundreds of basking hippos.
The 25 tents guarantee a high level of privacy and personal attention, and have made the camp one of Kenya's most popular honeymoon destinations. Voyager Ziwani offers a host of exciting safari activities, from game drives in Tsavo West, night drives among the resident game, walks with highly qualified naturalists, and trips among the battlefields and colonial relics along the Tanzanian border
The camp lies 250 km south (four hours drive, one hour flight time) of Nairobi and close to the Tanzanian border and Mount Kilimanjaro. Amongst the wide range of Kenya hotels, some make the ideal Kenya safari destination. Choose a safari lodge, safari hotel, bush camp, luxury lodge, safari camp, tented camp or bush lodge. National park accommodation usually takes the form of a traditional safari lodge or tented camp, but numerous other options exist on the park boundaries. Luxury lodges and luxury camp options are also offered in the private wildlife conservancies.
The joint mass of Tsavo East and West national parks represent the largest national park in the world, covering a massive 4% of Kenya's total land area. Tsavo East, one of the last great wilderness landscapes on Earth, offers a vast arena of emerald-fringed meanderings of the Galana River, guarded by the limitless lava the world. Tsavo West, land of lions and lava, is painted on a sprawling canvas of endless skies, emerald hills, liquid lava flows, palm-fringed rivers, teeming wildlife and sparkling oases, where rafts of hippo wallow, snort and blow in the crystal clear melt-waters of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Kenya's largest National Park supports all the members of the ‘Big Five' as well as the country's largest elephant population. Tsavo achieved notoriety in the 1900's when ‘the Man-eaters of Tsavo', a pair of rogue man-eating lions, preyed gruesomely on the builders of the Uganda Railway. Today the Park is more famous for the numerous prides of mane-less lion that patrol the plains and police the herbivore herds.
Wildlife highlights: elephant, lion, hippo, rhino, zebra, hartebeest, lesser kudu, eland, waterbuck, Grant's gazelle, impala, gerenuk, giraffe, dik dik and klipspringer. Birds: 600 recorded species.
