Tsavo East Wildlife

Tsavo East  is considered one of the world’s biodiversity bastions, and its popularity is mostly due to the vast amounts of diverse wildlife that can be seen

The sight of  African dust-red elephants wallowing, rolling, and spraying each other with the midnight blue waters of the palm-shaded Galana River is one of the most evocative images in Africa. This, along with the 300 kilometers long Yatta Plateau, the longest lava flow in the world, runs along the western boundary of the park above the Athi River, was formed by lava from Ol Donyo Sabuk Mountain making for an adventure unlike any other in the Tsavo East. It is also famous for the Tsavo lions, a population whose adult males often lack manes

entirely.
