In rural Kenya, the drought has doubled the number of people facing severe food shortage to 2.7 million.
In semi-dry regions, the drought means cattle farmers are losing their livestock. As both humans and animals have to travel further to find water, competition for scarce resources has increased.
In addition to drought, poaching has also become a problem in wildlife sanctuaries, where everything from elephants to donkeys are at risk.
A little rainfall over the last couple of weeks has helped ease the effect of drought on Tsavo West Park.
