We start early on our safari journey via the Nairobi - Mombasa highway. There will be a stop over en-route for breakfast cum refreshments. We enter the Tsavo West in the mid-morning and commence game viewing en-route base. After check-in, we freshen up and settle for a buffet lunch. We will proceed for an afternoon game viewing drive with a visit to the rhino sanctuary. We return to our base for dinner and overnight.

Day 02: Tsavo West - Amboseli (140 kms, Appx 3 hrs)

"The early bird catches the worm!" We test this old adage by embarking on an early pre-breakfast game and scenery viewing drive. Sunrise catches us with it's splendor as the drama of the wild unfolds amid the freshness and beauty of the morning. We spectacle as the grazers and hunters move on unperturbed by our presence. We will head to the Mzima Springs 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 will be back to our base for breakfast before joining our convoy on the onward journey to the Amboseli. The 140 kms journey will be through jungle to arrive at our base in Amboseli in time for lunch. We will freshen up, enjoy our buffet lunch and while it away until late afternoon when we set out to explore the Amboseli. Afternoon game viewing drive in this open park. It is a leisurely activity with game easily seen and with the bulk of Kilimanjaro providing the back-drop for photography. Clouds may open up and the sight of the snow peaked Kili will leave us mesmerized.
Dinner and overnight at our base.
