Tsavo Est

We leave Mombasa with an old van 6th February in the morning for the national park Tsavo Est. The journey was rather heavy because very bad roads. The road from Mombasa to the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, was in complete reconstruction, so some parts were full of the holes. We made a break for lunch in one local restaurant. We spent our first night in Crocodile Camp.

Before we coming to Tsavo Est, we visited a Masai village that was open to tourists. Well, I must say that Masai live today in the same way as they lived hundreds of years ago. The houses made from wood and mud, very little and very dark, but the temperature inside is very supportable.

The safari started when we arrived to Tsavo Est. This national park is characteristic for the red colour of the soil that gives a special impression, together with reach vegetation. Numerous sorts of animals are present in the site, and we were very fortunate because we saw a lion too; it's not an animal that can be seen in each safari, due to a vast area that the park occupies.

Crocodile Camp, where we stayed, took it's name for the presence of crocodiles at the border of the camp, on the little beach of the near river. For the tourists of the camp, a special spectacle each evenings is feeding the crocodiles with the pieces of fish. After two days that we spent in Tsavo Est, 8th February we left this beautiful place, and in the morning reached, with a little plane, Lake Nakuru, an other paradise in this amazing country, called Kenya.
