The Athi River, the second-largest in Kenya, hurtles down from the high mountains in the center of the country. Its waters have sculpted its bed with great force, creating a spectacular landscape, and when it dries up—as it has done here in the Tsavo National Park—the nomads bring their cattle to drink from the holes that still retain the precious liquid. The pollutants carried by the river once it has passed through the capital Nairobi and the agricultural plateau regions that it irrigates, together with frequent and devastating droughts, are the reason for this seasonal drying, and desertification is a serious threat. The Tsavo National Park is one of the largest in the world, and contains large herds of elephants, hippos, and rhinos, among other species. With its mixture of plain, savanna, bush, lakes, rocky outcrops, ancient lava flows, and semidesert, this immensely rich landscape is one of the country’s major resources, and carefully regulated tourism is an important source of revenue.
