Meal Plan: Lunch, Dinner
We’ll be up early for a busy safari day, traveling along the Mombasa-Nairobi Highway. Enjoy a picturesque drive along the Kenyan countryside.
Entering the gates of Tsavo East is a portal into a new realm where the wildlife has held forth for millennia and man is a relative newcomer. But you’ll feel at home here as the animal sights add to your experience and memories.
We’ll travel over to the park’s famous watering holes like the Aruba Dam and the Kamderi marsh areas where the game gathers for the life-giving waters.
Lunch follows and time for rest, as a pause in the midday heat.
Later in the afternoon, we’ll embark on another game drive collecting more big game sightings and then we’re off to Tsavo West Park for another type of wildlife adventure.
The black rhino is a commanding but shy creature. The rhino sanctuary here is home to over 80 of these endangered animals. During our game drives, we’ll head over and see how many of the rhinos we can find.
We’ll spend the dinner and overnight , at your choice of safari lodge or tented camp.
Meal plan: Breakfast, Lunch.
We’ll be up early for our second safari day to see as much wildlife as possible. There’s nothing like Africa’s golden light breaking over the hills and forest, calling to us and the animals, to emerge into the morning and see what adventures lie ahead.
Breakfast will follow at your accommodation. And then we hit the safari trail looking for more adventure as we tracked the “Big Five” plus smaller hunters and grazers like impala, hartebeest, and the adorable bush baby.
Traveling over the park’s trails we’ll come upon the green palms and crystal waters of Mzima Springs, a life-giving haven for Tsavo wildlife. Here, we’ll leave our 4 x 4 to stretch and walk along the green shores to view hippos, crocodile, fish, and varieties of birds. Also attracted to this refuge are many of the park’s animals, like zebras, monkeys, baboons and sometimes elephants.
Speaking of elephants, Tsavo West hosts a large population of these majestic figures and we’ll be looking for them amongst the rolling hills and plains.
We should arrive and drop off at your hotel or resort in the late afternoon.
