Day 1: Mombasa Safari to Tsavo East
Depart Mombasa for Tsavo East National Park for game drive before lunch and short rest at the Lodge. Afternoon game drive to chance spotting as many wild animals as possible while enjoying and soaking in the beauty of nature. Dinner and overnight at the lodge.
Tsavo East, the oldest and largest (covering a whooping 13,747 square kilometres) park in Kenya, is generally flat, with dry plains, hills and scattered acacia scrubland. The park is famous for its landscapes, its lighting and its large herds of big mammals (such as elephants, buffalos and lions). The park achieved notoriety in the 1900s when ‘the Man-eaters of Tsavo’, a pair of rogue man-eating lions, preyed gruesomely on numerous construction workers of the Kenya-Uganda Railway.
The incident was described in a book titled ‘The Man-Eaters of Tsavo’ and later turned into a Hollywood film in 1996. Today the park is more famous for its numerous prides of mane-less lions and being the park with the highest population of elephants in Kenya.

Tsavo West National Park covers an area of 9,065 square kilometres and it’s terrain is much more varied than that of Tsavo East, it ranges from 200-1000m in altitude. The northern sector is bush land with scattered native baobab trees. Wild animals in the park include elephants, African lions, hippos, cheetahs, hartebeest and buffalo.
