"From East to West" Safari
Short Description and Price
This 3 Days Tsavo East & Tsavo West Private Safari takes you on the trip of a lifetime. Making our journey through both Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Park, we encounter two very different environments with unique flora and fauna. Tsavo is Big Game Country: Elephants, Lions, Buffaloes, Leopards, Rhinos, plentiful plain’s game and an abundance of bird species call the park home. As we travel from East to West, we notice the landscape slowly changing from open savannah to attractive hilly and densely vegetated landscapes.
Day 1: Mombasa/Diani – Tsavo East National Park
To start off your safari adventure, our driver will pick you up from your hotel in Mombasa or Diani in the early morning at 6:30am. We then proceed to Tsavo East National Park in a game drive en-route to our accommodation. Upon arrival, we enjoy a delicious lunch and find time for a comfortable siesta before setting out on a spectacular game drive in the late afternoon.
Tsavo East is known for excellent game viewing which includes Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs, Zebras, Giraffes, Servals, Buffaloes, Elephants and many more. We can also spot a variety of migratory and native birds. The birds are present between late October and early January, and come from as far as Eastern- and Western Europe. There are many fascinating aspects to observe, such as 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.
After an exciting day, we return to our accommodation for a delicious dinner and a good night’s sleep.

Day 2: Tsavo East National Park – Tsavo West National Park
After an exciting early morning game drive, we enjoy a full breakfast at our accommodation before we head to Tsavo West National Park. When we travel west, Tsavo shows us a different face. The landscape is much more hilly; numerous volcanic craters rise from the plains. Fields of lava remind us of long-ago eruptions. The fauna of Tsavo West is very rich, besides the Big Five the park is home to further numerous species. Given the rich vegetation, the animals can be tricky to spot at times. This should not discourage you, but in fact can make your safari experience even more exciting. The reward is worth the extra patience!
After a delicious lunch, we visit the park’s Rhino Sanctuary where Tsavo’s growing population of endangered Black Rhino is inching its way back from the chasm of extinction. Later, we start out on a game drive where we see Buffaloes, Elephants, Lions, Cheetahs, Giraffes and many more species. As the sun sets over Tsavo West National Park, we head back to our lodge for dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Tsavo West National Park – Mombasa/Diani
We greet the new day with an early morning game drive followed by a delicious breakfast. Afterwards, we check out of our lodge and start out on an en-route game drive as we head out of the park in direction of Mombasa. We enjoy lunch in Voi Town, then arrive at your hotel in Mombasa or Diani in the early evening hours. Your safari ends here, but you won’t go empty-handed. Instead, you return home with the memories of a lifetime and filled with the strong spirit of wild African adventure.
