3 Days Tsavo West, Amboseli and Taita Hills


  1. (DAY 1) Tsavo-West

    We will leave Mombasa early in the morning and drive to Kilaguni Lodge in Tsavo West, where we will have breakfast. Then we then continue our journey through Masai country and past manyattas (Masai huts) to Amboseli, where we will arrive for lunch. Despite its size of "only" 390 km² Amboseli, which means "place of water" in Masai language, has probably the most diverse wildlife of all parks in Kenya. Authors like Ernest Hemingway have made this park famous.

    In the afternoon we will go on a game drive through the scenic national park at the bottom of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), the highest mountain in Africa. Amboseli has a huge elephant population as well as a great variety of gazelles, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, rhinos, lions and cheetahs. New lakes have also attracted flamingoes and many other water fowl.

    In the evening we will return to the hotel for dinner and overnight. Depending on the hotel, you will either have the opportunity to watch animals coming to the nearby waterhole in the cool night, or sit around a large campfire.

  2. (DAY 2) Amboseli

    If desired, we will go on an early-morning game drive. After breakfast we will drive back through Massai land to Tsavo West. We will have a short stop at the Shaitani lava fields, which were formed more than 4000 years ago by the eruption of a volcano that must have been higher than Mount Kilimanjaro. Then we will continue to Mzima Springs, where we can watch crocodiles and hippos. The springs are fed mainly by underground streams from Chyulu Hills, one of Kenya's youngest national parks. 20,000 litres of crystal clear water come to the surface each day and serve as a fresh water reservoir for the region of Mombasa. The Chyulu Hills are said to be haunted - there are many stories about strange things going on there.

    Tsavo West is 9 065 km² in size and includes the famous Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary.

    Then our journey will take us to Taita Hills Game Reserve, where we will arrive for a late dinner and overnight. The private game reserve is for the most part surrounded by the national parks of Tsavo Ost and West.

  3. (DAY 3) Taita Hills

    If desired, we will go on an early-morning game drive through Taita Hills, where we may see giraffes, various antelopes, buffaloes, cheetahs and some lions. After breakfast, we will have another game drive before we return to the hotel for lunch.

    The extended lunch break offers the chance for a refreshing dip in the hotel pool or an African dance show. In the afternoon we will head back to Mombasa, where we will arrive in the evening.
