Tsavo National Park, a safari lover’s paradise, is the birthplace of the Tsavo Man-eaters tale, a story of fearsome roars from the late 1890s when the Mombasa-Nairobi Railway was being built. Back then the railway line was known as the lunatic express and the lions were responsible for the deaths of dozens of construction workers when a bridge was being constructed over the Tsavo River. Today that railway runs parallel to the more recent Standard Gage Railway (SCR) connecting Mombasa to Nairobi.  Dinner and overnight Ashnil Aruba Game Lodge.
