The reason to go here was for the hippo's and crododiles. But i prefer to see them for example in Ziwani. A much more nice environment and experience.

Early morning trip to see Hippos in this wonderful environment. Very easy walk- our daughter was on crutches-and great experience as guided by a very friendly ranger. Plenty of other wildlife like crocodiles, elephant, monkeys.

A beautiful setting for a lovely 20 minute walk around the springs, watching the hippos play. Missed the crocs but still well worth the visit.

A great stopover on a drive through Tsavo West National Park. A stunning oasis. Plan to be there with your picnic lunch.

Enjoyed our ranger-guided walk here. Saw hippo and crocodile. Fish visible in under water lookout. Tsavo really needs this.. didn’t see much else due to thick vegetation.
