Tsavo West National Park
About Mzima Springs
Mzima, meaning “alive”, is a beautiful oasis of four natural springs in Tsavo West National Park. The source of the springs is a natural reservoir under the Chyulu Hills.
Mzima Springs is a wonderful place to observe the circle of life. Hippos, crocodiles and turtles congregate in spring-fed pools. Fish-spearing birds in turn eat dung-eating fish. And so one feeds the next in the food chain established by the hippos that consume up to 45 kg of grass every night.
