USD600 / Per person

Tour Summary/Overview

Enjoy this Exclusive Safari to the Tsavo West National Park and Mombasa

Slightly larger and less accessed, Tsavo East is a marginally better choice than the western side, but both offer great scenery and, as the dense bush dries back in the winter months, very good game viewing and birding that is second only to Naivasha.

The Springs are fed daily by 250 million liters of water gushing from the Chyulu Hills provide an oasis of green, an underwater hippo viewing chamber, two nature trails and some unique picnic spots.

The molten lava that forms the Shetani Lava Flow spewed from the earth just 200 years ago and its fiery fury was thought by the local people to be the work of the devil, hence its name which means devil in Swahili. Return back to the lodge for breakfast then proceed to your next destination - Tsavo East National Park. We arrive at our lodge in time for lunch then rest before the afternoon game-drive. The park is famous for the ‘Man-eaters’. In 1898, as many as 135 railway workers were attacked and killed by man-eating lions.

The pair of male, maneless lions that, unusually, hunted humans rather than livestock, evaded traps and capture for many months. The man-eaters were eventually shot by Lt. Col. John Henry Patterson, but the legend lives on.

A variety of animals can be seen in the park such as lions, leopard, cheetah, zebras, giraffes, serval, antelopes, kongoni, lesser kudu, oryx, klipspringer, impala, stripped hyena, ostriches, gazelles, buffalos, elephants and many more. A variety of migratory and native birds are seen.

Day 3: Tsavo East - Drive to Nairobi or Mombasa

Enjoy an early breakfast followed by an extensive game-drive. There are many interesting aspects in the open areas of Tsavo East which include the spine of the Yatta Plateau, one of the world's longest lava flows.

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. Mudanda Rock which is sometimes referred to as the miniature of Ayers rock in Australia is almost 2 kilometers long it juts out of the surrounding landscape.

Lugard Falls gush through a small fissure, narrow enough for the foolhardy to leap across, before dropping to Crocodile Point below, where the river changes its name to the Galana and is named after Britain's first proconsul in East Africa, Captain Lugard. The Crocodile point where you can often find some pretty large crocs as well as plenty of other wildlife including buffalo, hippo and the highly endangered Hunter's Hartebeest. This is also a great area for within the park for birding as well.

Return to the lodge/ camp for Lunch then proceed to Nairobi or proceed to the Kenya coast beach hotels.
