#MKTE2019: Get to know Tsavo

The Magical Kenya Travel Expo (MKTE) is a B2B trade show organised by our partner On Show Solutions for whom we handle the MKTE social media and mailers to hosted buyers, exhibitors, hosted media, and trade.

In working on the mailers we shared some interesting information on Kenya with the international buyers ahead of their arrival in Kenya. In this short series we are also sharing this information with you.

Read the earlier blogs in this series here. We cover, basics about Kenya, Amboseli, and Samburu.

Basic information about Tsavo

  • Tsavo is the largest national park in Kenya
  • The area is made up of both Tsavo East National Park and Tsavo West National Park because the two parks are separated by the railway between Mombasa and Nairobi
