Tsavo National Park

The vast Tsavo National Park is only an hour's drive from Mombasa. The park is home to giraffes, buffalo and antelope, as well as monkeys, many exotic birds and Kenya's largest herds of elephants. Visitors are also likely to see rhinos - after being virtually wiped out by poachers, their population now numbers almost 200. Another exciting attraction is an observation tank in one of the park's pools from which visitors can get a close-up view of hippos, crocodiles and tropical fish in their natural habitat. Some of the roads in the park are in bad condition and it can be difficult driving but if organised game drives ensure no problems.
