"Hakuna Matata" Safari
Short Description and Price
We start our Amboseli and Tsavo West Safari adventure at the foot of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro in Amboseli National Park. To witness Africa’s highest mountain break through the cloud layers into bright sunshine is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Amboseli is “Big Game Country”, and especially the huge herds of Elephants found here contribute to the park’s popularity. From Amboseli, we travel to famous Tsavo West National Park, home to the legendary “Man-Eaters” of Tsavo and to a rich ensemble of astonishing wildlife.
Day 1: Nairobi – Amboseli National Park
Our driver will comfortably pick you up from your hotel or the Nairobi Airport at 7:00am. We then together proceed to Amboseli National Park via Maasai land. On a clear day we marvel at majestic Mount Kilimanjaro as we approach Amboseli. We arrive at our lodge in perfect time for lunch, find a bit of time to relax and dip into the inviting swimming pool, and then set out for a spectacular game drive. Amboseli is best known for its great herds of Elephants – you’ll often find plenty of them standing knee-deep in the water, spraying water, eating and bathing in the swamps to cool off. Predators stalk the herds of grazing animals, recreating the age-old drama of life and death under the African sun, in a setting so lushly beautiful.
Cheetahs, Buffaloes, Giraffes, different types of Gazelle and rich plain’s game are but a few examples of the stunning wildlife found here. As the sun goes down on Amboseli National Park, we return to our accommodation for dinner.
Overnight at the Sentrim Amboseli Lodge or Kibo Safari Camp
Meal Plan: Lunch and Dinner
Day 2: Amboseli National Park – Tsavo West National Park
On our second day of safari adventures, we greet the new day with a spectacular morning game drive right at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro. Later, we enjoy a delicious breakfast, before departing to Tsavo West National Park. On our way to Mzima Springs, where Hippos and Crocodiles can be watched from the safety of an underwater hide, we pass the impressive Shetani Lava Flow (“Shetani” means “devil” in Swahili). When the lava erupted some few hundred years ago, the locals thought that the devil himself was emerging from the earth. After returning from our adventure, we check in at our lodge and comfortably take lunch. We have time to relax until 4pm, then head off for a visit to the Park’s Rhino Sanctuary. We spot Elephants, Giraffes, an abundance of bird species and – of course – the endangered Black Rhinos. All against the backdrop of Tsavo West’s beautiful hilly landscape.
Overnight at the Rhino Valley Lodge, Ngulia Safari Lodge or Severin Safari Camp
Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Day 3: Tsavo West National Park – Mombasa/Diani
How to better start a new day in paradise than with setting out for more safari adventures on a breathtaking game viewing trip? A last game drive in Tsavo West reveals more of the park’s beauty. Hilly bushlands, dense vegetation and an astonishing richness of wildlife. Remember to keep a sharp lookout. You may witness a dramatic hunt, a solitary Leopard retrieving its kill from the high branches of an acacia tree, or a herd of Elephants protecting their young from predators. Given the rich vegetation, the animals can be tricky to spot at times. This should not discourage you, as in fact it can make your safari experience even more exciting. The reward is worth the extra patience!
We later enjoy a delicious breakfast at our accommodation, then go for a game drive en-route to Voi Town for lunch. Then we drive on towards Mombasa/Diani, where we safely arrive at your hotel in the late afternoon. Your safari ends here, but you return home with the memories of a lifetime – that much is certain!
