Two Night - Tsavo East - Lumo Sanctuary
Ask anyone what colour an elephant should be and you may get a raised eyebrow (or two) but the answer
will normally be grey or greyish. Red would almost certainly not be the answer. Yet in the Kenyan National
Park of Tsavo East you will find red elephants aplenty.
The reason for their red colour is the dusty soil of Tsavo which the elephants regularly partake of dust baths. The dust serves as an important anaesthetic to protect the elephant's skin. It also has the added bonus of shining up their tusks in to an almost silver appearance.
On this very special Safari you will encounter these majestic animals as well as many lions, cheetahs, antelopes, giraffes to name but a few, along with a large variety of bird-life.
