The Mzima Springs which contains 20 million tones of crystal – clear water from the underground streams of the nearby Chyulu Hills are additional attraction; various aspects of marine life including hippos, crocodile and fish can be seen from the specially constructed underground glass tank.

Mzima Spring:   Mzima springs ("Mzima" meaning alive in Kiswahili) is a peaceful oasis at the heart of red-dusty Tsavo and this magical place is not be missed. The pure water of the three Mzima's pools filtered by the porous sponge-like soil of the Chyulu and the Shetani lava flow brings life to a unique ecosystem at only 40 km away from the Chyulu Hills. With a daily supply of more than 250 millions liters of fresh water, the pool provides an oasis of green, and heaven for fishes, birds, monkeys, crocodiles and hippos. The main attractions are the two nature trails leading to an underwater viewing tank build to allow visitors to watch hippos - if your are very lucky - and fishes (the most common fishes being the "barbel" of grayish colour and the "mud sucker" with developed lips and a large mouth. Picnic spots available 

Shetani Lava Flow And Cave :   The Shetani flow, a black lava flow of 8 km long, 1.6 km wide and 5 meters deep, is the remain of volcanic eruptions which were subject of tales among local communities who named the flow "shetani" meaning evil in Kiswahili after it spewed from the earth just 240 years old. Climbing the flow is not an easy task as the thick black soil is composed of uneven chunks of solid magma. The cave, located near the centre of the outflow, has two large opening and one ancient tree is growing between them. Although the cave is only few meters long, the exit is not accessible (although it can be seen) as the place is too narrow.

 Later in the afternoon depart Tsavo west for Mombasa arriving in the evening where you will be dropped at Diani Reef Hotel.
