Losai National Reserve is a restricted tourism area, having formerly been a habitat for black rhino and elephants.
Losai is characterized by rugged terrain; a lava plateau with scattered volcanic plugs covered with thorn bushes. Its relative isolation and inhospitable terrain make it very difficult to visit, even in a four wheel drive vehicle.
The northern part of Kenya is dry and partly semi arid meaning that the park is also dry with a semi desert landscape. The game reserve is characterized by features such as rocky hills, a lava plateau and open plains. On the west side of the national reserve there is the magnificent Ol Doinyo Lekinyo Mountains as well as the Ndoto Mountains There also is a wide variety of animal species in Losai national reserve. Animals such as elephants, the greater and lesser kudu and gazelles can easily be spotted in the park. Reptiles such as pythons, cobras and lizards are also common in Losai game reserve due to the hot humid whether that the reptiles prefer. It is also easy to note that there are a large number of insects such as grasshoppers, beetles and scorpions.
