About Tsavo Air Package
2 Days Tsavo Air Package will have you fly from Nairobi to Tsavo West National Park Kilaguni Airstrip. You will be exploring Tsavo West National Park in 2 days while staying at some of the best-situated safari lodges deep inside Tsavo wilderness.
Welcome to the wilderness. Tsavo West is one of Kenya’s larger national parks (9065 sq km), covering a huge variety of landscapes from swamps, natural springs and rocky peaks to extinct volcanic cones, rolling plains and sharp outcrops dusted with greenery.
This is a park with a whiff of legend about it, first for its famous man-eating lions in the late 19th century. There is plenty of wildlife here, although you’ll have to work harder and be much more patient than in Amboseli or the Masai Mara; the foliage is generally denser and higher here. Put all of these things together, along with its dramatic scenery, fine lodges and sense of space, and this is one of Kenya’s most rewarding parks.
