Tsavo West National Park is located at the heart of the evidence of the volcanic activity of Kilimanjaro millions of years ago. The park has various habitats and a railway line that divides it from the adjoining Tsavo East National Park. Tsavo West is a more popular destination on account of its magnificent scenery, Mzima Springs, rich and varied wildlife, good road system, rhino reserve, rock climbing potential and guided walks along the Tsavo River. Mzima Springs are a series of four natural springs in Tsavo National Park they are located in the west of the Park, The source of the springs is a natural reservoir under the Chyulu Hills to the north, rain water percolates through the rock, and may spend 25 years underground before emerging 50 kilometers away at Mzima. Mzima is one of Tsavo's most popular wildlife attractions owing to its resident populations of hippos and Nile crocodiles, Mzima’s isolation make both species dependent on its waters: other sources are too distant for them to reach by overland travel. The hippos also sustain an entire food chain. The springs were made famous by wildlife film-makers Alan and Joan Root's 1969 nature documentary Mzima: Portrait of a spring, which featured underwater footage of the hippos and crocodiles.
