Tour Itinerary

1

On arrival into Mombasa, greet your tour guides and transfer to Sarova White Sands Resort. Boasting an idyllic waterside location overlooking one of Kenya's longest stretches of beach and set amidst 23 acres of tranquil landscaped gardens, spend a day at leisure to unwind at this fantastic resort before enjoying an evening meal and overnight stay at Sarova White Sands Resort.

2

Depart Mombasa after an early breakfast, travelling past traditional warehouses and workshops along the outskirts of Mombasa. As the weaving route ascends into Tsavo East National Park's expansive grasslands, marvel at the hazy vision of authentic Kenya which surfaces, framed by Taita Hills' undulating mountain range along the horizon. Allowing a warm breeze to sweep across your face, stand up to enjoy an impressive panoramic view of this awe-inspiring sight from the roof of the bus, as you enter the heart of Kenya's largest national park. After dining on a succulent lunch, set off on an exhilarating afternoon game drive across flat savannah plains and rocky pathways in search of local wildlife who reside here, attracted by the even terrain and inviting watering hole, and return to the lodge as the fiery sun sets. Enjoy an evening meal and overnight stay at Aruba Lodge or similar.

3

Listening out for the serene echoes of wandering wildlife and rustling leaves which flutter in with the fresh breeze, observe the park's inhabitants stirring from their sleep on an early morning game drive, before returning to the lodge for breakfast. Depart for Taita Hills Sanctuary, participating in a thrilling game viewing along the rugged route, and upon arrival, enjoy a tasty lunch at Salt Lick Lodge. Thriving with an enormous and varied selection of birds and mammals, the sanctuary's relatively small size allows numerous opportunities to spot Lions, Cheetahs and Elephants on an exciting afternoon game drive across savannah plains and open pastures, in the dramatic and captivating shadows of the nearby towering mountain range. Return to Salt Lick Lodge for tonight's meal and uncover the underground hide for a closer encounter of local wildlife who gather at its adjacent watering hole. Optional activity: Enjoy an hour-long game drive under the glistening stars in the night sky on an evening game drive for the chance to spot nocturnal animals amongst other wildlife settling down for the night.

4

Catch a glimpse of the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro and soak in the sounds of the wilderness on an early morning game drive across Taita Hills Sanctuary, returning to the resort for a delicious breakfast. Afterwards, depart for Mombasa and transfer to your hotel this evening
