7:00 am – Rise early to embark on this tailor-made safari adventure from your coastal resort. Your expert driver/guide, along with your private 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep, will be there to kickstart your journey.

You’ll begin with a ferry ride to Mombasa and then proceed along the Mombasa-Nairobi highway. As the African sunrise bathes the fields and homesteads in golden light, you’ll head towards your destination. If you desire, we can make a pit stop for refreshments.

Today, you have a choice. Select either Tsavo East National Park, renowned for its unique short-maned lions, leopards, cheetahs, and other magnificent creatures, or explore its sister park, Tsavo West National Park, where you’ll also encounter rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, and numerous surprises.

Regardless of your choice, your journey will continue to Amboseli National Park, nestled at the base of the iconic and photogenic Mt. Kilimanjaro. Here, you’ll be treated to sightings of elephant families as they gracefully traverse to and from their beloved watering holes.

Leave the beach behind, if only for a few days, and join us from your Diani or other south coast resort for this exclusive Kenyan safari.

What’s Cool About These Parks?

Tsavo East boasts incredible vantage points for wildlife viewing, known as watering holes. Locations like the Galana River, Mudanda Rock, and the Aruba Dam are magnets for the park’s thirsty wildlife population. Expect to witness elephants, giraffes, zebras, impalas, and many others gathering for a drink.

If spotting rhinos is on your wish list, Tsavo West offers an excellent opportunity at the Ngulia Sanctuary. This park also boasts another unique destination, Mzima Springs. Enjoy a lush oasis amidst the savannah, where exotic birds, fish, hippos, and crocodiles thrive in crystal-clear waters.

Amboseli guarantees elephant sightings as its hallmark, with these magnificent creatures parading through this compact but bustling reserve.
