On your first game drive in one of the most scenic parks you will definitely discover the red elephants of the Tsavo, among other animals, which powder themselves with laterite colored soil in order to protect themselves against the burning sun and annoying vermin. With a bit of luck, your driver has already tracked down lions, a leopard or even a pack of very rare African wild dogs.
