The main landscapes of the park are grass savannahs with large thickets of shrubs, near the river the terrain is sometimes bogged down. The uniqueness of the landscapes is given to the Yatta plateau, which was formed under the influence of frozen lava flows from the volcano Ol Doinio Sabuk. The Ati River, off the coast of which high palm trees grow, is very impressive, the sun of crocodiles is hiding in their shadow. Downstream, water falls into the gorge, forming the Lugard waterfalls.
