This is all thanks to our expert hosts and guides who will take care of all your transfers and admin for you, leaving you to fully embrace this cultural and wildlife experience in vibrant Kenya,.

Your adventure begins when you arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi where you will be met by one of our local hosts who will take you directly to your first accommodation, where you will have the chance to rest and recuperate after your long journey.

From there you will explore the vast, beautiful Tsavo West National Park for two days, with a luxurious tented camp as your base.

The National Park is home to a diverse range of Kenyan wildlife, including the iconic African big 5  (lions, leopards, buffalo, rhinos and elephants). The park is situated in a remote spot of the Taru Desert and can be known as  the “Land of Lava, Springs, Man-eaters and Magical Sunsets”. It is one of the outstanding protected areas in Kenya and provides a vital home for a flourishing ecosystem of many carnivores and herbivores.

During your time here, you will have the opportunity to witness the bush wildlife on game drives and  on guided walks with locals, in the hope of catching a glimpse of all of these stunning animals in their natural habitat.

We wouldn’t want you returning home from your wildlife holiday feeling as though it’s been all go however. After your time in Tvaso West, you will spend three days in Mombasa South to unwind on beaches straight out of paradise. You’ll stay in a truly beautiful beach side resort which tastefully plays homage to the local Swahili culture of the area, where you can either relax completely, or enjoy scuba diving, kite surfing or take a trip out on a traditional dhow to explore the coastline.

As you drive through the savannah and acacia woodlands, your guide will point out the various wildlife and bird species that call Tsavo West home, including elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, and buffalo.

Sunrise is an incredibly beautiful time to head out into the park, not only thanks to the soft dawn light, but also thanks to the fact that animals often become active in the early morning, and it’s not entirely unusual to hear the distant roar of a lion echoing across the plains.

During your time at the park you can enjoy night game drives, game walks with local guides and a cultural visit to local Taita tribe villages. Relax with the opportunity for sundowners, a bush bath and with complementary soft drinks, wine and beer.
