The red soil of Tsavo East gives this elephant a red hue following a dust bath, which protects its skin from both parasites and the sun. The Tsavo National Parks are especially known for vast herds of these “red elephants” and for having some of the last big tuskers. Their presence is a testament to the region's diverse and beautiful wildlife, and their conservation is vital to safeguarding the natural heritage of this incredible land.
