AASC15: 6 days Amboseli/Tsavo West/Tsavo East/Mombasa

6 days Amboseli Tsavo West Tsavo East Nairobi safari

A safari to see some of Kenya’s famous game parks and also see Africa’s top mountain, Mt. Kilimanjaro and back to Nairobi – the green city in the sun

Day1: Nairobi/Amboseli:
Pick up from your hotel in the morning and drive along Mombasa road via Emali town to Amboseli in time for lunch at your lodge. We have afternoon gamedrive starting 16.00 hours. Dinner and overnight at your lodge (LD)

Day2: Amboseli:
Day spent viewing game in the morning and afternoon. Amboseli (392 sq km) is not a big park but supported by swampy vegetation it harbours elephants, buffaloes, hippos, lions, cheetahs, hyenas, jackals, gazelles, wildebeests, warthogs, zebras, ostriches and Masai giraffes in the background of the magnificent snow caped Mt. Kilimanjaro. The waters from melted snow find their way down the mountain under lava flows and surface on the Amboseli plains in form of swamps. (BLD)

Day3: Amboseli/Tsavo West
After breakfast we head for Tsavo West National Park. Visit the Chyulu Hills and the Mzima Springs which are favourite haunts for both the hippo and crocodile, which can be seen from an underwater observation chamber.  Dinner and overnight in a lodge (BLD)

Day4: Tsavo West
Day spent exploring Tsavo West including the nature trails. Tsavo west is not a place where animals can be readily seen due to heavy undergrowth and hence a little patience and effort is required to spot the game. However there is compensation for that in scenic landscapes, a bit wilder animals and less tourist traffic than the other famous parks (BLD)

Day5: Tsavo West/Tsavo East
Depart early in the morning and drive to Tsavo East. Tsavo East is famous for its great herds of elephant that are usually covered in red dust and also a variety of game and fine scenery. We visit Lugards Falls, Mudanda Rocks and Aruba Dam as we view game if time permits. However much of the action in Tsavo East is concentrated along the Galana and Voi rivers that provide the green pastures that sustain the wildlife in an otherwise very arid and dusty park (BLD)

Day6: Tsavo East/Nairobi
After early breakfast we depart for Nairobi and drop off at your hotel/JKIA midafternoon (B). END OF SAFARI
