Man Eaters of Tsavo
When the railway was being built in the last decade if the nineteenth century man-eating lions held up the work for several days. The incident is immortalised in the film “The Ghost and Darkness”. We visit the Tsavo area where the incidents took place and stay at the appropiately named “Man Eaters Camp”. It is a charming tented camp on the banks of the Tsavo river, with a swimming pool hewn out of solid rock.
Friday- Depart from Nairobi early and arrive at camp in time for lunch. In the afternoon walk to Tsavo Bridge in the company of an armed ranger. We also visit Tsavo station with its antique machinery still in use! Lions used to make themselves comfortable on the platform of Tsavo station! In the evening there will be a 40-minute talk on the railway, Patterson and the man-eating lions. After dinner you can view the film “The Ghost and Darkness”.

Sunday- Depart after a leisurely breakfast. We can have lunch at the Sikh temple in Makindu.
