Tsavo East National Park is by far the biggest of Kenya's parks.

The Galana River attracts large numbers of wildlife...

...and big herds of elephants...

...can sometimes be spotted from just outside your tent.

There are relatively few camps and lodges...

...the majority of them close to Voi in the west, near the Mombasa highway.
