Here, too, the land calls out to be explored. You can traverse the Yatta Plateau, at 300 kilometers, the world’s longest lava flow.
And it’s not all rugged plains that meet the eye – the Galana River flowing through the park creates a lush line of greenery cutting across the dusty Savannah. You’ll find pods of hippos, crocodile and waterbuck adding to the diversity in this unpredictable reserve.
