3 Days Tsavo East & Amboseli National Park from Diani/Mombasa Beach Hotel
You’ll be exploring the red soil plains of Tsavo East National Park, looking for the big cats and great patrolling groups of elephants.
Tsavo East National Park is Kenya’s largest park and home to tales of fierce lions. There is so much wildlife to experience on its wild and rugged expanse.
Amboseli National Park is Kenya’s second most popular park. Some say it’s because of the massive herds of elephants found here, others say the park’s smaller size affords active wildlife spotting.

Meal Plan: Lunch, Dinner
The safari begins with a pickup at your beach hotel or resort. We’ll take the scenic Mombasa – Nairobi Highway, viewing farmlands and Kenya countryside along the way.
We’ll stop for a short break as we enter the park to stretch your lets and there will be opportunities for refreshments, should you want. But we’re here to see the wildlife, so let’s get started on our first game drive.
The park is wide open with sparse foliage – this will make it easier for us as we track lions, elephant, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, antelope, ostrich and so much more including hundreds of bird species.
We’ll check into your lodge or tented campground to freshen up for lunch. Then, we’re off for more exciting game viewing. As the heat of midday wanes, the animals become more active, emerging onto the savannah making more opportunities for us.
Dinner and overnight at the safari Lodge or camp of your choice.
Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
We’ll arise early on our first safari morning to take full advantage of the dawning light and emerging animal life. We’ll enjoy breakfast and then a quick game drive as we exit Tsavo East. We’re now bound for Amboseli.
We’ll stop for some breaks on our trek to this very popular park. The imposing form of Mt Kilimanjaro will be our beacon guiding us to the park entrance. Arriving, we’ll freshen up before embarking on our first game drive at the foot of the iconic mountain.
Compared to Tsavo East, Amboseli is small, and its compact size has the advantage of affording us more opportunities to see the big game. However, you can’t miss the elephants at this reserve. They are in such abundance you’re guaranteed sightings!
And get your “Big Five” checklist out – if you missed any of them at Tsavo East, you just may spot them here.
Dinner and Overnight at your Amboseli safari lodge or tented camp
Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch
It’s an early rise again, and hopefully, the clouds will break at the peak of Kilimanjaro, revealing its snowy crown. Dining at your camp or lodge before a delicious safari breakfast, you can take in the splendor of Africa’s largest peak overlooking the park.
We’ll enjoy one final game drive in Amboseli again looking for the big game and the smaller forms of hyena, fox, monkey, and baboon. The park is a virtual city of wildlife. But now we’re off, heading back to the Kenya coast.
On the way back, we’ll make stops to rest, stretch and have lunch. As we return to your resort or hotel, you’ll gaze at the passing countryside, with thoughts of the marvelous animal sightings that have filled the past three days.
By late afternoon or early evening, we’ll have you back at your coastal accommodation and drop you off.
