Around 500 bird species have been observed in the park, including ostrich and several species of migratory birds.
Tsavo East 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.
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 shot later on. It seems the reason they attacked people was because of their bad teeth, which made it impossible for them to eat buffalo or gazelle.
