We stopped by Mzima Falls during a day long game drive. We had been having an outstanding day, so it really is difficult to rate it in comparison, so I won't. The Springs were quite pretty and a quaint respite. Our guide Willie was pleasant....More

I might have missed this, but got some of my best photos here. Beware the monkeys, they can be aggressive.

The springs are in such a beautiful area, we visited during our visit to Tsavo West. Because of crocodiles, however nothing to be afraid of. There are clearly marked walking paths around the springs. This are fed from the Chulu hills nearby

For sure, Mzima Springs is the highpoint to my Tsavo West National Park trip. The spring empties into a wide expanse that makes the habitat for hippopotami and Fish. We are lucky to spot a family of close to 10 hippos and a huge monitor...More

Mzima Springs is a very nice place for a short walk around for anyone on safari in Tsavo. We saw hippos, crocodiles and monkeys, and there's a submerged look out spot from which you can see plenty of fish.
