Walking safari in Tsavo

Walk among ancient geological formations in Tsavo National Park

The essence of the walking safari

Between the wonderful landscapes and the plentiful wildlife, you will feel as though you have stepped onto another planet as you explore Tsavo National Park on foot. Your experienced guide will lead you through the various geological phenomena that make up this diverse park, introducing you to various fauna and flora and explaining how they thrive in this challenging environment. At Tsavo you can walk on the world’s longest lava flow at the Yatta Plateau, stroll between rugged volcanic cones and marvel at the crystal clear waters of the Mzima Springs, which emanate from beneath the Chyulu Hills.

The expansive Yatta Plateau is a fascinating formation created from molten rock from Ol Doinyo Sabuk Mountain. Seek out Mudanda Rock, a rugged rocky outcrop that sprawls 1.6 kilometres (almost a mile) along the plains. A pristine water hole at the base of this splendid geological structure bustles with wildlife slaking their thirst. Mzima Springs is a magnificent body of water teeming with animals. Here, rumpled elephants stand guard at the shoreline, slumbering hippos bob gently in the water, wily crocodiles drift past surreptitiously and zebra and giraffe tread a network of paths in the mud.  Monkeys swing and play in the broad acacias and colourful birds chatter and tweet from towering raffia palms.
