ITINERARY OVERVIEW

 
 
 

ETS M260 Tsavo Man-Eaters safari originating from Mombasa

The Tsavo Man-Eaters were a pair of man-eating lions in the Tsavo region, which were responsible for the deaths of a number of construction workers on the Kenya-Uganda Railway between March and December 1898. The significance of this lion pair was their unusual behavior of killing men and the manner of their attacks.

Tsavo East National Park "The land lava and lions"

Tsavo National Park is the largest park in Kenya and was established on 1st of April, 1948. Tsavo National Park was split into East and West for administrative purposes, the park is around 8,000km sq.

Tsavo is famous for the 1898, maneless male lions (the famed man-eaters of Tsavo) that terrorized the workers, killing over 130 people before being killed by Col. J.H.Patterson.

The park is a ‘catchment’ for visitors from coast resorts with large herds of elephants and other wildlife. Yatta plateau is about 290 km long and is one of the world’s longest lava flows. Lugar’s fall on the Galana River – this is not a true falls but a series of rapids. Visitors walk down to river to view rapids. Mudanda rock is a long rock outcrop that is about 1.6 km long.
