Pick up and drive towards Tsavo East, enjoy game drive en route towards the camp/lodge arriving on time for lunch. The sight of dust-red elephant wallowing, rolling, and spraying each other with the midnight blue waters of palm-shaded Galana River is one of the most evocative images in Africa. This, along with the 300-kilometer long Yatta Plateau, the longest lava flow in the world, make for an adventure unlike any other in the Tsavo East. It 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, pods of hippo, crocodile, waterbucks, lesser Kudu, gerenuk, and the prolific bird life features 500 recorded species. Tsavo East is also famous for the Man Eaters of Tsavo. Beginning in the late 19th/early 20th century, the British began a concerted effort to colonize the interior of Kenya and built a railway through Tsavo in 1898. Two “man-eating lions” terrorized the construction crews led by Lt. Col Patterson who eventually shot the pair not before they had killed one hundred and thirty-five Indians and local workers. The railway was eventually completed through to Kisumu on Lake Victoria. Have a short siesta and later in the afternoon head out for a game drive until sunset and return to the camp/lodge for dinner and overnight
