Short Description and Price
This exclusive Tsavo East & Taita Hills Private Safari takes you to two of Kenya’s most beautiful wonders of nature. Travelling through Tsavo East National Park and Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary (Salt Lick), we encounter a myriad of astonishing animals. The fauna and flora found in these two paradises will manage to impress even the experienced adventurer. From Tsavo’s Red Elephants to Lions and herds of Buffaloes in Taita Hills – this safari keeps its promise of magical beauty and wilderness. The two parks are easily reached from Mombasa, making this safari a good choice for familys with children, too.
Day 1: Mombasa/Diani – Tsavo East National Park
Our driver will comfortably pick you up from your hotel at 6:30am in the early morning. We then start of together to Tsavo East National Park, where we arrive in time for a spectacular morning game drive with chances to spot Red Elephants, Lions, Buffaloes, Hippos, Giraffes, Gazelles, Waterbucks, Leopards, Zebras and an abundance of bird species. Game spotting in Tsavo East is usually fast and easy. After the morning game drive, we check in at our accommodation for lunch. We have time to relax and dip into the inviting swimming pool, then head for an exciting game viewing trip in the late afternoon.
There are many fascinating aspects to observe in the open areas of Tsavo East, such as the Yatta Plateau, one of the world’s longest lava flows. An additional attraction is the Athi River flanked by stately Doum palms which, near the Manyani gate, forms the Lugard Falls, a long stretch of rippling white-water cataracts and a favorite haunt for sunbathing Crocodiles.
