Print PDF
Highlights: Spectacular views of Mt. Kilimanjaro on clear days from Amboseli, Underwater observation of hippos and fish at Mzima springs & Herds of dust-red Elephants wallowing in the midnight-colored waters of the Galana at Tsavo West, Lugards Falls through which the waters of the Galana River plunge into foaming rapids and Crocodile infested pools + Aruba dam and Mudanda rock whose waters are visited by thousands of animals at Tsavo East

Outing Summary:

This safari concentrates on he Southern National parks (Amboseli, Tsavo West and East) and is ideal for those who want a classic 'Bush and Beach' African experience as the tour ends in Mombasa allowing you time to explore the beautiful coastal beaches and historic towns at your own pace. Amboseli is situated on the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro very close to the Tanzanian border. Despite its small size (392 sq km), this fragile ecosystem supports a wide range of mammals (well over 50 of the larger species) and birds (over 400 species) and on clear days the looming Mt. Kilimanjaro offers fantastic photo opportunities. On the other hand Tsavo is the largest national park in Kenya (at 22,000 sq km), and is comprised of Tsavo East and West. Due to the abundant vegetation cover, more effort is required to spot the wildlife but the fantastic landscape and comparatively few visitors compensates for this before heading to the hot and humid coastal section where you can spend time exploring either Lamu, Malindi, Mombasa, North and south coast thus completing your Kenyan experience in a style.

Day 1: Nairobi – Amboseli

We depart Nairobi in the morning and drive south through Masai land to the plains below Mt. Kilimanjaro where Amboseli is situated. After a picnic lunch enroute, we enjoy an afternoon game drive in the park before setting up camp in preparation for the evening. With the majestic backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro, spectacular displays of wildlife – Lions, Elephants, Leopards, Rhinos, Cheetahs, Buffalos and various plains' game, postcard perfect pictures are almost always guaranteed. (Picnic lunch & Dinner)

Day 2: Amboseli

We spend the day enjoying Amboseli through early morning and afternoon game drives. Lunch will be served at the campsite and you have the option of visiting the nearby lodge for a swim and cold drink or nearby community for example Lenkisem masai cultural visit (optional). The waters from Mt. Kilimanjaro drain under lava flows and surface in Amboseli, creating a green belt of swampland amidst dusty plains. At 329 sq km, the plains of Amboseli offer better chances of seeing game namely; Elephants, Buffaloes, Lions, Gazelles, Cheetahs, Wildebeest, Hyenas, Jackals, Warthogs, Masai Giraffes, Zebras, Baboons, Waterbucks among others. (Breakfast, Picnic lunch & Dinner)

Day 3: Amboseli – Tsavo West

We leave soon after breakfast for Tsavo West National Park. Visit the Chyulu Hills and the Mzima Springs which are favorite haunts of both the Hippos and Crocodiles that can be seen from an underwater observation chamber if time permits. Dinner and overnight at the campsite. (Breakfast, Picnic lunch & Dinner)

Day 4: Tsavo West

Day spent exploring the park including the nature trails. In Tsavo West, very common birds to look out for are; the White-bellied go-away bird, Red-beaked hornbills, Bateleur Eagles among others. There are also large populations of Elephants, Zebras and Leopards. Look out for dung beetles rolling huge balls of Elephant dung along the tracks. (Breakfast, Picnic lunch & Dinner)

Day 5: Tsavo West – Tsavo East

Early in the morning we drive to Tsavo East National Park. This park is famous for its large herds of Elephant covered in red dust and fine scenery. We visit the scenic Lugards Falls, Mudanda Rocks (attracts Elephants in the drier season) and Aruba Dam as we view game if time permits. Much of the wildlife is concentrated on the Galana River which has plentiful of Crocs and Hippos though the landscape is flatter and drier. Likewise, Kudus, Waterbucks and Dik-diks are very common along the river banks and by the road sides. (Breakfast, Picnic lunch & Dinner)

Day 6: Tsavo East – Mombasa

We set for an early morning game drive. Soon after breakfast, we proceed to Coastal Mombasa with drop off in town arriving in good time for travelers to find their way to their hotels. End of the tour. (Breakfast & Picnic lunch)
