2-DAY SAFARI TO TSAVO EAST & TAITA HILLS/SALTLICK

Daily Private Safari Tour

A Quick Drive from Beach to Amazing Wildlife

2 DAYS, 1 NIGHT: TSAVO EAST NATIONAL PARK – TAITA HILLS WILDLIFE SANCTUARY

Starting from/returning to Diani Beach area resorts. We’ll pick you up from your hotel. Begin your safari in the comfort of a private pop-top safari minivan.

It’s a quick trip from your beach resort to these nearby parks for 2 fun days of wildlife discoveries. Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary is a privately-owned reserve that offers visitors over 50 species of large mammals like lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, giraffe and zebra. Plus, waterbuck, gazelle, impala, dik-dik and 300 species of birds.

Tsavo East National Park is immense with a rustic, craggy charm. You can find Africa’s “big five” here along with hundreds of other species. This is the home of the famous Tsavo lions – almost 700 of them! The other big cats are here as well as duiker, eland, hyena, hartebeest, jackal, mongoose and dozens more.

On day 1 we’ll start early to give you plenty of viewing time at the parks. Natural World Kenya Safaris will pick you up at your Diani Beach/South Coast area resort and proceed over the Mombasa-Nairobi Highway arriving at Tsavo East in about 3 hours.

Coming upon the rugged, red soil plains of Tsavo is your signal you’ve arrived at Kenya’s largest national park.

Mudanda Rock/Aruba Dam

The reservoirs created by these dams – one natural, one manmade – are perfect viewing sites for the hundreds of animals who come here for their sustenance. Get ready for the sight of elephant herds and other wildlife at these life-giving watering holes.

Taita Hills

Later in the afternoon we will cross from Tsavo East to Taita Hills Game Sanctuary. The green hills of Taita contrast with the dry, red soil of Tsavo. So too, is Taita’s relatively small size compared with the immense sprawl of Tsavo.

But this more compact size works to our advantage. The rangers usually know where the bigger animals are in the reserve and guide us accordingly. It’s not unusual to spot dozens of species during the game drives here. Lions and elephants are commonly spotted in the reserve.

You’ll stay overnight at Taita Hills, with your choice of accommodation at the Sarova Taita Hills Lodge, the Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge or Lion’s Bluff Lodge – Lumo Sanctuary.

Then on day 2 it’s an early rise and shine to witness the forest and plains come alive with their wild populations reaching into the new day. After this early morning drive, you’ll return to your lodge for a satisfying safari breakfast. Then enjoy another game drive in this beautiful and diverse reserve before heading back to your resort at Diani.

All-Inclusive. Your 2-Day safari includes all ground transportation, accommodation at a choice of three lodges, park entrance fees, game drives, all meals and pickup/drop off at your Diani/ South Coast location.

An upgrade to a pop-top 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep is available at additional cost.

Your Guide. You’ll be guided, hosted and cared for by an expert and experienced driver/guide.
