Tsavo National Park is divided into East and West National Parks. Only a small area of this vast nature reserve (larger by far than Tsavo West National Park) is open to the public although new areas for human intrusion have been added. The remaining part provides a remote animal wilderness. Within Tsavo East, one of the largest lava flows in the world, the Yatta Plateau, is to be found. Tsavo West National Park, along with Tsavo East National Park, are two of Africa's largest national parks. Drought and poachers caused enormous devastation to the parks' population of rhinos and elephants but both species are now recovering.
Among the not so common animals to be found here are fringed-eared oryx, the gerenuk, and the lesser kudu. The carnivores found here include serval, hyena, leopard, cheetah and caracal. Gigantic elephants and other animals such as lions, some undoubtedly direct descendants of the man-eaters of Tsavo, can be seen roaming around in this national park. The landscape is filled with giant baobab tree and which are reputed to live a thousand years.
Tsavo West National Park covers an area of 9,065 square kilometers. The physical attractions include the Chyulu Hills, Ngulia Hills, Chaimu Larva, Shetani Larva, and Mzima Springs. The landscape of Tsavo West is grassland savannah with Acacia forests. The animals in Tsavo West include elephants, buffalos, leopards, lions, rhinos, giraffes, and zebras among others.
Amboseli was established as a reserve in 1968 and gazetted as a national park in 1974. The park covers 392 square kilometers and forms part of the much larger 3000-square-kilometer Amboseli ecosystem. Large concentrations of wildlife occur here in the dry season, making Amboseli a popular tourist destination. It is surrounded by 6 communally owned group ranches.
The national park embodies 5 main wildlife habitats which are open plains, acacia woodland, rocky thorn bush country, swamps, and marshland. It covers part of a pleistocene lake basin, now dry. Within this basin is a temporary lake, Lake Amboseli, that floods during years of heavy rainfall. Amboseli is famous for its big game and its great scenic beauty. The landscape is dominated by Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain ih Africa. It’s also a home to elephants, giraffes, cheetah, zebras, gnus, hyenas, buffalos among others. Amboseli is also a paradise for birds.
