The remains of a volcanic lava flow that originated from one of the hills in the chyulu hills range. Located on the northwestern
end of Tsavo west national park
, it measures about 8 km long, with a width that varies from a few hundred metres to 2 kilometres in some places.
Nothing grows here and as a result there are few to no animals , meaning that the only sound you'd most likely hear around here, would be that of the wind.What to do there?
Hiking, safari walks, exploration of the many features which include the shetani caves and volcanic cones.
Or visit the other attractions in the park, a list of which can be found on our attractions page
