A three day Tsavo East and Tsavo West Safari from Mombasa or Diani. Safari starts from Mombasa or Diani and ends in Mombasa, Diani, Watamu or Malindi
Pick up from Mombasa or Diani and drive towards Tsavo East National Park. Arrive at the Bachuma Gate of the Tsavo East National Park and enjoy a game drive en-route towards the camp/lodge arriving in time for lunch. The sight of dust-red elephants wallowing, rolling, and spraying each other with the midnight blue waters of the palm-shaded Galana River is one of the most evocative images in Africa. This, along with the 300-kilometre long Yatta Plateau, the longest lava flow in the world, makes for an adventure unlike any other in the Tsavo East. It forms the largest protected area in Kenya. It is home to most of the larger mammals, vast herds of dust –red elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, pods of hippo, crocodile, waterbucks, lesser Kudu, gerenuk, and the prolific birdlife features 500 recorded species. Tsavo East is also famous for the Man-Eaters of Tsavo. Beginning in the late 19th/early 20th century, the British began a concerted effort to colonize the interior of Kenya and built a railway through Tsavo in 1898. Two “man-eating lions” terrorized the construction crews led by Lt. Col Patterson, who eventually shot the pair not before they had killed one hundred and thirty-five Indians and local workers. The railway was eventually completed through to Kisumu on Lake Victoria. Have a short siesta, and later in the afternoon, head out for a game drive until sunset and return to the camp/lodge for dinner and overnight
After breakfast, check out and drive towards Tsavo West. Enjoy a morning game drive en-route as you proceed to your camp/lodge for check-in and lunch. From the sight of fifty million gallons of crystal-clear water gushing out from the under parched lava rock that is the Mzima Springs to the Shetani lava flows, Tsavo West is a beautiful, rugged wilderness. The savannah ecosystem comprises open grasslands, scrublands, Acacia woodlands, belts of riverine vegetation and rocky ridges, including the Poacher’s Lookout, where visitors can see the teeming herds in the plains below. Tsavo West offers some of the most magnificent game viewing in the world, and attractions include elephants, rhinos, Hippos, lions, cheetah, leopards, Buffalos, diverse plant and bird species, including the threatened corncrake and near threatened Basra Reed Warbler. Have a short siesta, and later in the afternoon, head out for a game drive until sunset and return to the camp/lodge for dinner and overnight
