Meal Plan: Lunch, Dinner
Your driver/guide will pick you up early from your Kenya coast beach resort or hotel in a 4 x 4 Jeep for your safari journey.
We’ll head out on the Mombasa-Nairobi Highway, also known as the Early Explorer’s route to Tsavo East National Park.
Upon arriving at Tsavo East, you’ll notice that the park is big, wild, and rugged. There are endless grasslands and savannah – a true wilderness. Look for lions, leopards, cheetah, buffalo, plus giraffes nibbling at the treetops.
The park is dry which makes it easier to spot the game. We’ll visit the Aruba Dam, a man-made structure but a natural watering hole for the wildlife. Great herds of animals and flocks of birds are drawn to the running waters here for their sustenance.
During your African Safari, your driver/guide is your host, expert, and friend, showing you the best of these natural wonders. Any questions or concerns just let him know.
The afternoon shall be spent on game viewing drives in search of more wildlife species.
Tsavo East is expensive, game viewing drives are long and rewarding.
Dinner and overnight at Tsavo East at your choice of safari lodge or tented camp.
Meal plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Now that we’re on safari, let’s make the most of our adventure and get up with the birds and enjoy a glorious African sunrise. This is a special time of day in nature when the night burns off and the wildlife begins to stir.
We’ll start with an early morning game drive looking for elephant, zebra, eland, and impala… and whoever else we may come across.
Later, we’ll head out for Amboseli Park, with more game viewing possible along the way.
Heading for Amboseli, look for the signature peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro as your beacon to the park. Amboseli lies at the foot of Africa’s tallest mountain.
The herds of elephants are so plentiful here, you are guaranteed sightings of these majestic creatures. The wildlife spotting at Amboseli is diverse and plentiful.
While at the reserve, if you wish, you can take an optional visit to meet the local Maasai in a nearby village. See their lifestyle, their culture, and their handicrafts. Just ask your guide to decide.
Toward evening the cloud cover, sometimes obscuring Kilimanjaro’s snowy summit may burn off displaying one of Africa’s most beautiful sights.
Dinner and overnight at Amboseli at either your safari lodge or tented camp.
Meal Plan: Breakfast
We will have another early morning game drive to catch the awakening wonders of this park, followed by a hearty safari breakfast.
Then we’ll take off on a mid-morning drive to in search of more large and small animals. We may visit Observation Hill, an ideal spot to get great vistas of the park and see more wildlife, especially the elephants.
Finally, we’ll bid farewell to the plains of Amboseli and the towering presence of Kilimanjaro as we head on to Nairobi.
We’ll arrive in Nairobi in the early evening, bringing you to your hotel, residence, or the airport.
