Tsavo National Park is divided into East and West National Parks. Only a small area of this vast nature reserve (larger by far than Tsavo West National Park) is open to the public although new areas for human intrusion are been added. The remaining part provides a remote animal wilderness. Within Tsavo East, one of the largest lava flows in the world, the Yatta Plateau, is to be found. Tsavo West National Park, along with Tsavo East National Park, are two of Africa's largest national parks. Drought and poachers caused enormous devastation to the parks' population of rhinos and elephants but both species are now recovering.
Among the not so common animals to be found here are fringed-eared oryx, the gerenuk, and the lesser kudu. The carnivores found here include serval, hyena, leopard, cheetah and caracal. Gigantic elephants and other animals such as lions, some undoubtedly direct descendants of the man-eaters of Tsavo, can be seen roaming around in this national park. The landscape is filled with giant baobab tree and which are reputed to live a thousand years.
