3 days 2 nights
Combining both Amboseli and Tsavo West not only serves you a platter of amazing wildlife spotting, but also epic sceneries. With this safari, we will take you through Amboseli’s lands of plenty and the unforgiving Tsavo, where life revolves around making it to a water hole.
What makes Amboseli special to us is that it is a game viewing paradise. . . Guaranteed elephant sightings come alongside other incredible wildlife sightings. Its compact size allows you to see virtually every aspect in about 3 days. In addition, Amboseli offers the best views of the world’s tallest free-standing mountain and Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro!
From the foot of the Chyulu Hills all the way down to the Tanzanian border, Tsavo West is a wild and broken land of volcanic hills, black lava flows and dense acacia woodland that offer the best views of untouched wild and covers 4% of Kenya.
Pick up from Nairobi/Mombasa (6:00/5:30 Am) and Drive to Amboseli national park and get to see Kenya’s townships and the laid back Hakuna Matata Culture. The park is famous for its herds of elephants, other members of the big five and the famous Africa highest mountain, Mt. kilimanjaro. You will arrive in time for lunch, followed by an afternoon game drive, staying late to watch the shades of gold Amboseli sun set. Dinner and overnight at Safari Camp/Lodge.
Wake up early to watch the sun rise on Mt. Kilimanjaro like a flower opening and gifting the Amboseli Eco system with life. After Break Fast, you can enjoy a morning game drive or opt to visit the Maasai village. Visiting the village will allow you to experience the Maasai culture at its best. This experience is very interactive, and we hope you will dance and jump along. After the maasai village, you will depart for Tsavo West arriving in time for a noon game drive as you head to your hotel for lunch. Tsavo West is hilly and swampy and its inhabited by the red elephants, rhinos, Maasai giraffes, bush babies, kudus, hippos, leopards, cheetahs, buffalos, lions and numerous bird species such as the endangered Basra reed warbler.On this day we will also visit the Mzima Springs and enjoy the relaxing, calm, peaceful and scenic surroundings. This heaven is a welcomed break from the red dust and heat of Tsavo National Park. Listen out for the Vervet monkeys and birds which you will definitely hear before seeing. Keep your eyes peeled for multi-coloured butterflies flitting through the trees, crocodiles stalking the banks as well as the resident hippos.Visit the Shetani which means ‘devil’ in Kiswahili. When the locals first saw ‘fire’ erupting and ‘flowing’ on the ground some 500 years ago, they believed that it was the devil himself emerging from the earth. The Shetani black lava flow is 8 km long, 1.6 km wide and 5 meters deep. The sight is quite special and spectacular.
After Break Fast, enjoy a morning game drive and start your Return to Nairobi/Mombasa arriving late in the afternoon
