Meal Plan: Lunch, Dinner
We’ll be up early for a busy safari day, traveling along the Mombasa-Nairobi Highway on a picturesque drive, enjoying the scenery on the way.
Arriving at Tsavo East, we’ll take a short refreshment break as we anticipate sightings of wildlife ahead. The broad open plain, dotted with acacia scrub lends itself to game spotting.
Plus, we’ll head to the watering holes where the wildlife gathers in this semi-arid reserve. The Aruba Dam is popular with the park’s animals and with safari-goers wishing to observe them in their natural settings. Look for buffalo, waterbuck, eland, impala and giraffe.
After lunch, we’ll take one last game drive here and then it’s a short jaunt over to Taita Hills Sanctuary.
In this privately-owned wildlife sanctuary, we’ll be tracking the big game like lion, leopard, elephant, giraffe, and smaller wildlife such as gazelle, impala, and dik-dik.
Dinner and overnight at Saltlick Safari Lodge
We’ll be up for a pre-breakfast game drive to watch the wildlife come awake and enjoy the early morning light over the sanctuary’s green hills.
After breakfast at our lodge, we’ll venture out for one more game drive in this compact but densely populated reserve. This will give us opportunities to view more of our favorite animals and perhaps to spot others for the first time.
Taking a last look at Taita Hills, we’ll depart the reserve with photos and memories of our safari adventure.
We’ll head out for the Kenya Coast on the Nairobi Mombasa Road and enjoy a rest stop for lunch on the way.
By late afternoon or early evening, we’ll have you back at your hotel or beach resort.
