Kenyan Adventure

As the birthplace of the modern Safari, uncover authentic Kenya on a journey across rolling grasslands and expansive savannah plains, on the quest to spot majestic wildlife in their natural habitat. Embark on game drives and marvel at captivating landscapes on this incredible 5-day add-on

Tour Itinerary

1

Upon arrival into Mombasa, meet your tour guides and transfer to the Sarova White Sands resort. Overlooking one of the longest stretches of white sandy beaches in Kenya and boasting incredible views of the Indian Ocean, spend the rest of the day relaxing in this tranquil paradise, before a delicious meal and overnight stay.

2

After an early breakfast, travel along Mombasa's outskirts, past rustic workshops and warehouses on the journey towards Tsavo National Park. Climbing steadily along the main highway, watch as the vast grasslands of Tsavo and the undulating Taita Hills begin to emerge across the horizon, a true vision of authentic Kenya. Reaching Buchuma Gate at the entrance of Tsavo East National Park, the largest National Park in Kenya, feel the wind in your hair as you stand up in the open-topped bus to marvel at panoramic views across this expansive and stunning landscape. Arriving in time for a hearty lunch, enjoy some time at leisure before this afternoon's adventure, darting across the park's savannah plains, searching for roaming lions, black rhino and cape buffalo in their natural habitat. Bask in a golden glow as you return to Aruba lodge as the sun begins to set over the imposing mountain range and enjoy dinner this evening and overnight stay..

3

This morning, depart for one of Africa's most popular parks - Amboseli National Park, a stunning region, set amongst the striking backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro. Passing Hunters Lodge, a historic sight of the infamous "Man eaters of Tsavo" incident, reach the fast-growing Emali township and continue onwards to Amboseli National Park, arriving in time for lunch and an afternoon dip in the tempting swimming pool. This afternoon, set out for an adventure to explore a range differing habitats including Sulphur springs, Lake Amboseli's dried up lake-bed and dense woodland, with each environment attracting a huge variety of natural wildlife. Best known for its large herds of elephants, look out for these majestic creatures spraying themselves to keep cool as they freely wander the wetlands, but remember to look out for the park's other inhabitants: Giraffes, Gazelles and Cheetahs. At sunset, head back to Amboseli Sentrim Camp for this evening's meal and overnight stay.

4

As the sun begins to rise over Mount Kilimanjaro's snow-capped peaks, witness the blissful chanting of enthusiastic birds soaring overhead and the soft murmur of the wilderness rising from their sleep on an early morning game drive, returning to camp for a replenishing breakfast. Afterwards, head towards Taita Hills and enjoy a tasty lunch before zigzagging over uneven terrain and vast plains on an afternoon game drive in Taita Hills Sanctuary, a haven for Leopards, Zebra and Lion. After returning to Sarova Salt Lick Lodge for tonight's meal, set out on an additional evening game drive for the chance to spot nocturnal wildlife under the warm glow of moonlight. Then return to Sarova Salt Lick Lodge for your overnight stay.

5

Savour the astonishing scenery this morning on a final game drive, taking you into the depths of the sanctuary for another opportunity to soak in the captivating views and enchanting wildlife, returning for lunch. Continue onward towards Mombasa, journeying through the heart of this coastal city, catching a glimpse of its swarming port and crystal-clear Indian Ocean waters en-route to your final hotel.
