Lions, Elephants & Mt. Kilimanjaro Starts From/Returns to Mombasa, Kilifi, Bamburi & North Coast beach areas. We’ll pick you up from your hotel or resort.
|Departure:||Mombasa/Diani/Galu/Bamburi Beach Hotel|
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 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 lion, 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 mid-day wanes, the animals become more active, emerging onto the savannah making more opportunities for us.
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..
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.
