DAY 2: NAIROBI - TSAVO WEST

Set off to Tsavo West National Park, located in the Coast province in south-east Kenya. The landscape of Tsavo West is spectacularly varied, with semi-arid plains, open grasslands, dense woodlands, rocky outcrops and lava flows. The soil is rich and red in colour and this creates the illusion of magnificent red elephants – which are actually covered in dust from the soil. The park is also home to wildlife including rhino, buffalo, leopard, lion, waterbuck, lesser kudu, giraffe and gerenuk. Arrive in time for lunch at Voyager Ziwani Tented Camp. Situated on a private sanctuary at the western edge of Tsavo, the camp sits on a secluded dam on the Sante River, which is home to crocodile and hippo. Stay in one of the 25 classic safari tents. Each canvas tent has a protective thatched roof, en-suite bathroom and deck overlooking the river.

DAY 4: TSAVO WEST - AMBOSELI

Leave Tsavo and head to Amboseli National Park at the foot of snowcapped Mount Kilimanjaro. Located in the Rift Valley province of southern Kenya, close to the Tanzanian border, Amboseli has some of the most dramatic views of ‘Kili’. Sunrise and sunset are spectacular in many national parks, but here, over Mount Kilimanjaro, are some of the best. The park has a large concentration of wildlife. There are over 1000 elephants, including some of the largest in Africa. Catch sight of buffalo, lions, cheetah, rhino, waterbuck, zebra and warthog in the open savannah, rolling hills and swamplands. Though largely dry and dusty, Amboseli is also home to swamplands, fed by underwater springs from the melt waters of Mount Kilimanjaro. These lush green swamplands attract wallowing elephants and hippos, as well as buffalo and birdlife. You’ll arrive at Ol Tukai Lodge in time for lunch. After Lunch, enjoy an afternoon game drive.
