From tangles of dense undergrowth of the semi-arid desert, dust red elephants leisurely take charge of the vast park. Tsavo East lies to the east of the Nairobi – Mombasa high way, and equidistant between Nairobi and Mombasa, and offers a vast and untapped arena of arid bush which is washed by the azure and emerald meanderings of the Galana River, guarded by the limitless lava reaches of the Yatta Plateau, the longest lava flow in the world and patrolled by some of the largest elephant herds in Kenya.
The park forms the largest protected area in Kenya and is home to most of the larger mammals, vast herds of dust –red elephant, Rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard, hyena, hippo, crocodile, waterbucks, lesser Kudu, gerenuk and hirola. The park is also an ornithological paradise that attracts migrating birds from all over the world. The prolific bird life features 500 recorded species.
