Day 2

Tsavo West National Park

After breakfast, we have a full day game drive, packed lunch provided. Other interesting places to visit are the Roaring Rocks, which get their name from the wind that hurtles through them. From here there are wonderful views over Tsavo from the top of a 98m rock face; similar views can be experienced from the poachers lookout. The volcanic Chaimu Crater, less than 200years old and composed of black coke, is worth visiting and can be climbed if one is interested. The area is a good place to look out for klipspringer, a small antelop that’s as agile as its swahili name mbuzi mawe(mountain goat). In the south west corner of Tsavo west is Lake Jipe, which has the Kenyan-Tanzanian border running through it.
