Safari and Saltlick - By Samantha Owen-Stoddart

During my time in Kenya I went on a two day safari to the Tsavo East National Park, enjoying the sights and sounds of the park’ animals.

The Tsavo National Park is split into two sections Tsavo East and West, separated by the A109 road and a railway. Its name came from the river Tsavo, which flows west to east through the national park.
