a national park in southeastern Kenya, in the basin of the Athi and Tsavo rivers.

The eastern part is a park savanna, with a predominance of baobabs and various spurges and acacias. The western part has volcanic landforms, including streams of congealed lava and volcanic cones. Tsavo National Park is an animal preserve with elephants, rhinoceroses, hippopotamuses, buffalo, and various species of antelope.
