Tsavo West NP, Amboseli NP
5 days of wonder in the Parks of the coast. See the beautiful, rugged nature of the West Tsavo and its gushing Mzima Springs, followed by the magic of the Amboseli, sitting under the watchful eye of the Kilimanjaro.


Day 1. Nairobi-Tsavo West NP (4h). We depart by road for Tsavo West National Park. Arrive in time for lunch then an optional afternoon or evening game drive. Tsavo West is the most visited section in Tsavo National Park, offering many attractions apart from its wildlife. The foremost is the famous Mzima Springs where up to 227.3 million litres of cool crystal clear water flows out of the ground through porous volcanic rocks. The water is believed to originate from Chuyulu Hills, via an underground river.

Dinner and overnight at campsite or lodge.

Day 2. Tsavo West. After breakfast, we have a full day game drive, packed lunch provided. Other interesting places to visit are the Roaring Rocks, which get their name from the wind that hurtles through them. From here there are wonderful views over Tsavo from the top of a 98m rock face. The volcanic Chaimu Crater, less than 200 years old and composed of black coke, is worth visiting and can be climbed if one is interested. The area is a good place to look out for klipspringer, a small antelope that's as agile as its Swahili name Mbuzi mawe
(mountain goat). In the south-west corner of Tsavo West is Lake Jipe, which has the Kenyan-Tanzanian border running through it. Dinner and overnight at campsite or lodge.

Day 3. Tsavo West NP-Amboseli NP (3h). Early Morning start and drive to Amboseli National Park, check in at your accommodation, a day spent at leisure. Most of the park consists of a dry, ancient lake bed and fragile grassland with patches of acacia woodland, while in the southern area there is a number of small, rocky, volcanic hills. Around the swamps Ol Okenya, Ol Tukai and Enkongo Narok, the vegetation is lush with yellow-barked acacias and phoenix palms. Dinner and overnight at campsite or lodge.

Day 4. Explore Amboseli. Rising early for good views of Mount Kilimanjaro before clouds build up over the summit with packed lunch provided, an optional visit to a Masai village can be planned after breakfast. A visit reveals the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals. A glimpse into their homes and social structure is a poignant experience. Amboseli is undoubtedly the best place to meet the most majestic elephants with the most impressive tusks in the world, the “Big Tuskers” and from where you will have the most spectacular view of Mount Kilimanjaro!
Spending as much time as you'd like to observe these gentle giants as they feed and bathe in the marshes is one of the highlights of an Amboseli safari.
Dinner and overnight at campsite or lodge.

Day 5. Amboseli NP-Nairobi (4h). After breakfast, if you chose a lodge in the park we will do a game drive in the morning, then we drive to Nairobi. Transfer to your hotel or the airport.
