The Tsavo sister parks are Kenya’s largest, oldest, and certainly amongst the finest of the great wildlife reserves to explore on your African Safari. This private tour will keep you busy with unlimited game drives on the great expanse of Tsavo East and the scenic hills and savannah of Tsavo West. Between the two parks, all of Africa’s Big Five roam these fields and bush. This short safari is a perfect impulse getaway and no advance planning is needed. Just let us know and we’ll have you on safari in no time.
All-Inclusive. Your 3-day Tsavo East/Tsavo West safari includes park entrance fees, game drives, accommodations and meals. Natural World Kenya Safaris always offers a choice of accommodations. Depending on your budget and style choose from economy, comfort or luxury safari lodges or tented camps.
However… please know that whatever level of accommodation you choose, your actual safari adventure with us will always be at our highest standards.
Your Guide. For your 3-day Tsavo East/Tsavo West journey, you’ll be guided, hosted and looked after by your own experienced driver/guide.
Transportation to the parks and game viewing will be in a private 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep – this vehicle is the safari standard with its higher seating and rugged all-wheel drive. Always included on our tours, the Land Cruiser Jeep is just another example of the value we offer you at Natural World Kenya Safaris.
- Day 1 - Nairobi – Tsavo East National Park: (320 km: 5 Hrs drive)
Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
06:00 hrs. – Your driver/guide will pick you up from your Nairobi hotel, residence or Nairobi airport.
We’ll head out in our 4 x 4 Jeep for Tsavo East on the Nairobi-Mombasa Highway also known as the early explorer’s route.
We’ll arrive at Tsavo’s gate where the immense sweep of the park’s great expanse will fill our horizon. Take a break if you’d like but then we’ll fire up the 4 x 4 and head off on our first game drive.
This is big savannah country and we’ll be looking for lions and the great elephants that populate these red-dust plains. Punctuating the arid sweep of the park, its refreshing watering holes are a natural draw for the reserve’s thirsty inhabitants.
We may visit Aruba Dam and Mudanda Rock to watch the elephants and lesser creatures gather for sustenance at these watering spots.
We’ll enjoy lunch and then jump into the 4 x 4 for more afternoon game drives.
You’ll spend your first safari night at Tsavo East at the lodge or tented camp of your choice.
- Day 2 - Tsavo East – West (60 Kms – Approx. 1 Hr)
When in Tsavo East, we rise with the birds, that is, before the sun. Our early morning game drive will afford us exquisite views of the park emerging in the dawning light. In this special atmosphere, we will observe the animals as they come into the new day.
Breakfast follows at our lodge or tented camp and then we’re off again on another game drive to discover buffalo, impala, eland and some of the park’s 500 species of birds.
But soon it’s time to journey to the other Tsavo… Tsavo West. The short drive there will give us more opportunities to spot wildlife.
The look and feel of this park is different – more color, more foliage and some very green surprises like Mzima Springs. The crystal waters feeding this haven and the palm shrouded banks impart the feeling of a lush oasis. We’ll look for hippo, crocodile, exotic fish and migratory birdlife.
The park also is home to the Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary, protecting at least 80 of these endangered animals. We’ll drive through and perhaps spot some of the magnificent rhinos.
Our final safari night will be in Tsavo West at your choice of accommodation.
- Day 3 - Tsavo East National Park – Nairobi: (320 km: 5 Hrs. drive)
It’s another early morning for safari-goers! Let’s add more animal sightings to our list.
A delicious safari breakfast follows and then one more bonus game drive over the striking plains of Tsavo West. Look for bushbaby, hartebeest, impala, and scampering in the park’s many acacia trees – monkeys!
But now it’s time to exit the park on our way back to Nairobi.
We should have you back to your hotel, residence or the airport in the late afternoon, approximately 17:30 hrs. (5:30 pm).
We hope you checked off lots of wildlife from your list and enjoyed your time at these two famous parks. From our family to yours, thank you for going on safari with us – Asante! (Thanks!) And hope to see you soon.
