GROUP DEPARTURE DAYS: Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays
Day 01: Mombasa – Tsavo East (120 KMS - Appx 2½ hours)
We depart our hotel on the inland ”safari” journey via the “explorers” route - Mombasa - Nairobi highway. The African sunrise catches us as we drive past rural Kenya Villages. The 120km - 2hrs dawn journey takes us to the southern entry point of the Bachuma gate where we stop briefly for refreshments.
We commence game viewing drives on entry concentrating on the Aruba dam and Kanderi swamp areas of the park where higher number of game are bound to be spotted. We transverse this great expanse of wildlife kingdom, basking in the scenery and marveling at our guides expertise in animal tracking.
Later, we settle for a buffet lunch while game watching or enjoying the views of the savannah plains.
We depart Tsavo East for the scenery dramatic west commencing game viewing on entry, while we head to our accommodation base. After freshening up, we take to the plains for a visit to the Rhino Sanctuary and more game viewing returning to our base for dinner and overnight stay.
Day 02. Tsavo West - Mombasa (170 KMS - Appx 3 hours)
“The early bird catches the worm” We test this old age adage by embarking on an early pre-breakfast game viewing drive. We catch the sunrise with its splendor as the drama of the wild unfolds amid the freshness and beauty of the morning. We are the spectators to the grazers and the hunters as nature moves on unperturbed by our presence. We return to our bases for breakfast.
Nature beckons! We will be out again game viewing as we head to the Mzima springs where we disembark and explore on foot this natural haven where we view hippos, crocodiles, exotic fish and a variety of bird species. The greenery surrounding the springs is a welcome contrast to the harsh terrain that forms the bulk of Tsavo West. We return to our base for a buffet lunch before commencing our return journey to the Coast and our respective hotels.
