Tsavo West National Park’s Shetani Lava Flows

The Shetani lava flows are situated about four kilometers west of the Tsavo West National Park’s Chyulu entrance, on the road to Amboseli. In swahili, the word “Shetani” means “devil,” and the flows were formed only a few hundred years ago, leading locals to assume that the devil himself was coming up from the deep earth. This massive swath of folded black lava covers more than 50 square miles.
