  The Kenya Game Parks & Reserves

NAIROBI NATIONAL PARK

One of Kenya's original National Parks established in 1948, it features 117 sq. kms of pristine savannah and yet is only 8 kms from the city centre. Large populations of giraffes, Wildebeest, Eland and Gazelle dominate the plains. Of the big five only the elephants has not been spotted. Prides of lionss appear at the entrance to Mbagathi Gorge. This park, so convenient to the business traveller also offers the spectacle of a Nairobi silhouette on the near horizon. Bounded by the Athi River to the south with its Hippos pools, here there are two animal orphanages including Daphne Sheldrick's Home for Orphaned elephantss and Rhinos.

TSAVO NATIONAL PARK

At 20,807 sq. kilometres, Tsavo is larger than Wales and Jamaica. The Park lies midway between Nairobi and Mombasa. Its red earth characterises its rivers and elephantss. A safari here will turn your hair red! The Chyulu Hills feed Mzima Springs with 20 millions litres of crystal clear water daily. A remarkable oasis supporting Hipposs, Crocs, Gazelle, Zebra, giraffes and thick Acacia forests filled with chattering Birds and Monkeys. Outstanding vantage points include Ngulia Escarpment and Voi out in the east. The Chyulu Hills out west and the outstanding lava flows/cones, as at Shitani (near Kilaguni Lodge), are a fascination unequalled to many geologists.
