3 Days Tsavo West & Amboseli National Park from Diani/Mombasa Beach Hotel
Tsavo West, home to lions and other big games. Then it’s a short hop to Mt. Kilimanjaro and Amboseli Park where massive herds of elephants will amaze and delight.
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.

The safari begins with a pick-up at your beach hotel or resort. We’ll take the scenic Mombasa – Nairobi Highway, viewing farmlands and Kenya countryside along the way.
Entering Tsavo West you’ll be struck by its vast savannah and rolling hills. But what you might not expect are the forms of recent lava beds punctuating the park. You’ll find other volcanic remnants such as cinder cones in this legendary reserve, as well as lush spring-fed oases.
The wildlife here is varied and unexpected. Not only will we be on the lookout for the “Big Five” but we may also see ostrich, monkey, baboon, and aquatic creatures.
After a break for lunch, we’ll try our luck spotting black rhino in the Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary on the grounds of the park. There are over 80 of these shy and endangered creatures roaming the protected enclosure.
Dinner and overnight at the safari Lodge or camp of your choice.
Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.
We’ll be visiting two national parks today, so we’ll be up early and launch our adventure with a pre-breakfast game drive. Heading out in our Jeep we’ll be looking for wildlife emerging into the dawn.
After a satisfying breakfast, we’ll venture out again, this time headed for Mzima Springs. This oasis is a cool, shaded contrast to the rugged terrain of the park. Here, by the spring-fed waters we’ll look for crocodile, hippo, bright birdlife, and fish. And we won’t be the only visitors as much of the park’s wildlife is drawn to the life-sustaining waters here.
We’ll enjoy a final game drive at Tsavo West, as we exit the reserve on the short drive to Amboseli National Park. Look for the imposing form of Mt. Kilimanjaro that stands sentinel over this small but active park.
Amboseli is known for its elephants, and you will see them here, foraging and parading in grand form to and from the local watering holes.
With Kilimanjaro forming a majestic backdrop for the stream of wildlife marching before it, Amboseli is one of the most photographed parks in the world.
Dinner and overnight ath the Safari Lodge or Camp of your choice.

We’ll keep up with the birds to view the awakening wildlife and hopefully the white-capped pinnacle of Kilimanjaro.
After enjoying a final breakfast at our accommodation, we’re off on a short game drive as we exit the park. We’ll take one last look at the wildlife and Mt. Kilimanjaro, holding those pictures in our mind.
Late Evening dropped off at Diani/Mombasa/Bamburi Beach Hotel
