Spend two days in the largest national parks in Kenya: Tsavo East and West and experience the very different vegetation and landscape of these two parks.
Tsavo East is famous for its red elephants and lion sightings.
Hippos, crocodiles and, with good luck, rhinos and leopards are waiting for you in Tsavo West.
Amboseli National Park impresses – usually very late in the evening or early in the morning – with its majestic scenery of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
A large number of large herbivores live on the plains and in the marshes of Amboseli: elephants, wildebeests, zebras, gazelles and giraffes.
Bird lovers will be satisfied in Amboseli.
A park combination that will amaze you!
|START/END||Your accommodation in Diani Beach|
|PICK UP TIME||5 am|
Day 1: Diani Beach - Tsavo West National Park
Before sunrise – at 5 am – we will pick you up from your accommodation in Diani Beach. You start your bush adventure and drive to Tsavo Gate (entrance to TsavoWest National Park), about 250 km. From now on: open your eyes and discover the first wild animals!
Your first game drive brings you to the lodge with a fantastic view, which you will reach for lunch. Then relax a bit, jump into the refreshing pool or enjoy the wild animals at the waterwhole and the fantastic view. Much too quickly the next game drive starts again (approx. 3.30 pm). We keep our fingers crossed that you will see the rare rhinosin the protected area. Chances are good that a leopardwill come to the hung leg of lamb during or after dinner so that you can observe and take photos of it while it is eating – 1 overnight at Ngulia Safari Lodge (B/D).
Day 2: Tsavo West National Park - Amboseli National Park
After early breakfast (departure: approx. 7 am) you will go on a lon game drive to Mzima Springs, an amalgamation of three underground springs fed by the Chyulu Hills. There you can watch hippos and crocodiles. You walk a short distance to observe them from a safe distance.
Your drive will then continue to Amboseli National Park, where you will reach the camp for lunch. After some rest, you will go on a game drive at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro in the afternoon. Hardly any national park in Kenya offers so many animal experiences in such a confined space. Green swamps with elephants, buffaloes, hippos and flat, dry land form an extreme contrast.
After sunset, you come back to the camp for dinner – 1 overnight at Sentrim Amboseli Camp (B/L/D).
Day 3: Amboseli National Park - Tsavo East National Park
The view to Mt. Kilimanjaro is usually spectacular at sunrise – but you have to get up early. Je nach individuellem Wunsch machen Sie sich vor oder nach dem Frühstück noch einmal auf die Pirsch im Amboseli Nationalpark. Then it is time to say goodbye to the largest peak in Africa (5,895 m) and you will head to the largest national park in Kenya – Tsavo East.
Zur Mittagszeit erreichen Sie Ihre letzte «Busch-Unterkunft» und lassen sich einmal mehr so richtig verwöhnen. Genießen Sie die Aussicht auf das Wasserloch und beobachten die Elefanten, Büffel und mehr, die dort trinken.
Around 3.30 pm it’s getting cooler and the animals are active again – time to go on the next game drive (don’t forget binoculars and camera!). The red soil of Tsavo East will accompany you until sunset and offer a wonderful panorama – 1 overnight at Sentrim Tsavo East Camp (B/L/D).
Day 4: Tsavo East National Park - Diani Beach
After an early breakfast you have plenty of time for one last long game drive through the vastness of Tsavo East. It’s still cool and elephants, giraffes, buffaloor even cats are often active around this time. Then it’s time to say goodbye and you leave the park.
Lunch at a restaurant near the park exit. Afterwards, you drive back to your accommodation in Diani Beach, where you say goodbye to your driver (B/L).
