4 DAY 3 NATIONAL PARK GAME VIEWING EXPERIENCE
This tour will starts from and returns to Mombasa, Kilifi, Bamburi and North Coast beach areas. You will be picked up from your hotel or resort to Tsavo west National Park.
These three parks have it all – lions, elephants, leopards, giraffes, rhinos and all waiting for you on savannahs, rolling hills, in acacia forest and at cooling springs. The Tsavo Parks are legendary for their size and their fascinating stories. Amboseli Park is one-of-a-kind, sitting at the foot of mighty Mt. Kilimanjaro, home to innumerable herds of elephants. In just four days, this medium-length safari will introduce you to Africa’s greatest wildlife.
Day 1: Mombasa – Tsavo West (4 Hours)
The safari begins with a pick-up at your beach hotel or resort. You will take the scenic Mombasa – Nairobi Highway, viewing farmlands and Kenya countryside along the way. The journey includes several stops to stretch and get refreshments.
Day 2: Tsavo West – Aboseli National Park (2.5 hrs.)
You will be up early to explore two national parks today! One of the gems of Tsavo West is a spring-fed oasis called Mzima Springs. Mzima means “life” in Swahili, and here we will find many forms of life at these nourishing waters – hippo, crocodile, exotic fish and birds. You will explore the shaded banks of the springs on foot and take in other wildlife like zebra and giraffe that are drawn here. Our final game drive will bring us to the park’s borders and a relatively short trip to Amboseli National Park to the south.
You may be able to track your journey to the park as the great form of Mt. Kilimanjaro appears on the horizon. This largest peak in Africa is the grand backdrop to Amboseli and presents a majestic presence, framing the reserve’s wildlife. So be sure to have your camera ready. We will have a relaxed afternoon watching for the wildlife. The park’s small size and sparse foliage will make game spotting easier. But it will be impossible to miss the immense elephants here. Amboseli National Park is known to be the best spot in Africa to see free- ranging herds marching before you with their proudly held tusks. Toward evening, the cloud cover masking Kilimanjaro’s snowy peak may drift away revealing one of Africa’s greatest treasures. Return to your accommodation for dinner and Overnight at your accommodation.
Day 3: Amboseli – Tsavo East National Park (4hrs)
Today you will rise with the dawn for a pre-breakfast game drive and perhaps a clear view of Kilimanjaro’s white-capped summit. A hearty safari breakfast follows to fortify us for the day ahead. On our final game drive as we depart the park, you will be looking for lion, cheetah and hyena and we will bid farewell to the elephants of Amboseli.
Later you will go back to Mombasa-Nairobi Highway as we make tracks to Tsavo East National Park, Kenya’s largest. Here at Tsavo, the terrain is rugged and sparse, but that only makes the game viewing more accessible. Here you will be looking for the big hunters and grazers, especially the “red-dust” elephants. The giant beasts here like to roll in the red oxide soil, giving themselves a hearty coating of the rusty color. Later you will have a relaxing afternoon, tracking the many species of the park, including over 500 types of birds. It’s been a busy day and as the sunset approaches, you will freshen up for dinner and the evening ahead.
Day 4: Tsavo East – Mombasa (2-3 hrs)
Today you will get up early! There’s so much to see here at Tsavo. After appreciating the wildlife as it emerges into the light, we’ll head back for breakfast. During our stay at Tsavo East, we’ll visit some of its famous watering holes like Mudanda Rock and Aruba Dam, where a multitude of wildlife seek the life-sustaining waters. Don’t be surprised to find every sort of species sharing this communal space. Now it is time to head back to Mombasa and the Kenya coast back to your accommodation for overnight.
