Location + Surroundings

This property is located in Kenya’s oldest national park, established in May 1948 – Tsavo East National Park. It covers 40% of all National parks of the country, and is a vital player in the world’s biodiversity given its extremely diverse wildlife. From elephants to rhinos to hartebeests, and many more you will be able to experience Kenya in its full potential. The legend of the lions of Tsavo originated here, giving them the pseudonym of the “man-eaters of Tsavo”. There are rapids falling on the Galana River, known as the Lugards falls. The Aruba Dam, built in 1952 across the Voi River is an ideal place for animal watching. There are many traditional Kenyan locations for you to visit such as the town of Voi with its traditional market and 1914/1916 War Cemetery. The Bura Mission is the first inland Christian Mission, established in 1892.
