Starting from/returning to your Diani Beach or other coastal resort.

We’ll pick you up in your own private 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep.

Map of 2 day safari tour from Diani Beach to Tsavo East

Here’s an easy way to get a quick taste of the safari experience – hop aboard one of our private 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeeps for the quick trip to renowned Tsavo East National Park. In little more than two hours from Diani Beach, we’ll have you on the rugged Tsavo plains exploring for elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, and much more.

The lions here are unique – the males have short manes – but they’ve got a ferocious history. Just ask your guide.

For two days we’ll take you on game drives through the famous park tracking for cheetah, African wildcat, jackal, giraffe, zebra, monkey, and innumerable numbers of birdlife.

So put on your safari outfit and let’s go exploring!

What’s Cool About Tsavo East?

Red elephants. There are lots of big elephants here and they like to roll about in the red-oxide soil, giving themselves a rosy, dusty coating. You’re certain to admire their “makeover”.

The waterholes at Tsavo are a rewarding stop for both wildlife and humans. The reserves’ animals replenish themselves at these dependable oases. For safari-goers, they’re a never-ending source of game spotting. We may visit Mudanda Rock, an outcropping poised over a natural dam where elephants gather in great numbers. Aruba Dam also attracts large numbers of the park’s thirsty population.

Soon the great, rugged plains of Tsavo East will stretch out before you with their treasures of elephant, lion, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, antelope, and many other species.

We’ll head out again for more animal sightings as we exit the park– lion, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, and hundreds of bird species.

Lunch will be at a rustic restaurant near the exit gate just outside the park before we head back on the highway to return to the coast and Diani Beach.
