Tsavo East National Park is one of the oldest and largest parks in Kenya at 11,747 Km². Opened in April 1948; it is located near the village of Voi in the Taita District of Coast Province. The park is divided into 2 parts by the Nairobi- Mombasa highway hence splitting the 2 parks into Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks respectively. Named for the Tsavo River which flows west to east through the national park, it borders the Chyulu Hills National Park and the Mkomazi Game Reserve in Tanzania. Tsavo East National Park is one of the world's largest game reserves thus providing undeveloped wilderness habitats to vast numbers of animals and over 500 different bird species.
