Marsabit National Park is home to massive tusked bull elephants, as well as a variety of birds and reptiles. In this arid, desert region of Kenya, it is a green oasis. An extinct volcano at the park’s heart creates a microclimate that sustains a large tract of indigenous forest, which in turn supports a diverse range of animals. Water is given to the Montane forest by a heavy mist that accumulates nightly as hot air rises from the desert and cools. Elephants, rhinos, lions, buffalo, and leopards are among the animals that call the forest home. The negative to Marsabit is that the jungle is so dense that seeing game is difficult. However, if you have patience, it may be quite lucrative. The park is home to the most graceful Greater Kudu Antelopes, as well as the uncommon Grevy’s Zebra and Reticulated Giraffes.
