Tsavo east National park
Tsavo East, covering an area of 13474 sq. km is famous for some of the largest herds of elephants in Kenya. The elephants seem to have a red colour, just like many other animals in the park, which is caused by the red dust which they spray on themselves against insects or parasites.
The Man-Eaters of Tsavo
The lions of Tsavo owe their fame to the book and movie “The Man-eaters of Tsavo”. Here a few lions ate several railroad workers during early 20th century. The lions were later shot dead.
