Lions of Tsavo
Today, the ferocious descendants of these infamous lions of Tsavo that rained terror on the railway workers for 9 months can be seen hunting, feeding and generally dominating the park!
I am pretty sure you are thinking...Kenya has red elephants?!! Although the statements suggests that indeed we do have red elephants, they are not born red.The elephants rub themselves on the fine red volcanic soil in the park which permanently coats their hides -Red! If you visit the park, you will encounter scores of these baffling creatures wandering by. Not just the odd one but upwards of 11,600 red elephants...
Tsavo is home to some of the best lodges in Kenya, including Finch Hattons which i did a feature story for the theme letter- F in the A-Z challenge. Other lodges include; Severine camp, Ngulia lodge, Voyager Ziwani, Kilaguni Serena lodge etc.
