  • Hi Michele, another fab. holiday & here’s a quick idea of the game situation. Meru was very green & we didn’t expect to see much but they knew of a previous lion kill so we saw them snacking on the remains on our 1st. game drive. The following morning we found 4 more from a different pride & then at breakfast Dominic caught a glimpse of one near a bush. We jolted down the hill & found 6 resting under a couple of bushes, another pride that they hadn’t known about. That made a total of 20 lions in 24 hours! There were lots of elephants & all the usual gang. At Steve’s camp there were lots (3 packs) of wild dogs with very good sightings. We had 2 good sightings of leopards – 3 of them posing beautifully for us. Kicheche had 2 very well fed cheetahs (on the night drive), 2 bat eared foxes & all the usual crowd. After I had told everyone that Ol Malo is our favourite camp despite not having much game I counted 22 elephants & 4 kudu from our room when we arrived – the official welcome committee! The next morning wild dogs again & posing very patiently for us & then they came back for a couple who were on the horses. We saw more game than ever before!

Tsavo National Park(s)

The combined East and West sides (bisected by the main Nairobi to Mombasa road) of Tsavo create a huge wilderness area which has high concentrations of game. Generally, Tsavo West (and the adjacent Taita Hills area) does tend to attract large numbers of visitors travelling by minivan from the coastal resorts around Mombasa and Diani, and the area around Voi in Tsavo East is equally busy, but there are one or two properties and seasonal tented camps which offer a good safari experience. At present, the vast tract of Tsavo East north of the Galana River is closed to the public.
