See Africa’s “Big Five” in Kenya’s Largest Parks

Starting from/returning to Nairobi area hotels, airport, or location of your choice.

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

These twin parks show off the best of Kenya’s wildlands – rolling hills, great endless red-dirt savannahs, volcanic lava beds, and lush green springs. And with this palette of landscapes comes every sort of African wildlife. Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks are known for their great populations of elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard, and rhino.

For 3 days we’ll explore the Tsavo “sister parks”, Kenya’s oldest and largest reserves, discovering the big game as well as giraffe, impala, hartebeest, monkey, and baboon. For sheer variety of wildlife and landscape, few parks can match these two venerable natural worlds. Let Africa Kenya Safaris treat you to an easy and fun adventure.

What’s Cool About Tsavo Parks

The noble horned rhino is an endangered species and isn’t found in many parks. At Tsavo West’s Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary, you’ll be on the lookout for over 80 of these shy, but treasured creatures.

The Tsavo parks are nothing if not a study in contrasts – wild arid grassy plains fade into green hills, meeting the rich waters of the Mzima Springs oasis. Along its grassy and palm-laden shores, you’ll be spotting hippos and crocodiles.

The parks also offer surprising lookout points where you’ll take in great stretches of sprawling landscape and even the snow-capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro in the distance.

Day 1

Nairobi - Tsavo East National Park

5-Hour Drive

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

6:00 am. Your driver/guide will pick you up at your Nairobi hotel, airport, or location of your choice. Climb into your private 4 x 4 Landcruiser Jeep to start your safari along the Nairobi-Mombasa Highway.

We’ll make rest and refreshment stops along the way and arrive at Tsavo East around noon. The vistas that greet you will be immense – this is a park of big sky and endless savannah.

We’ll have lunch and then roll out to explore the park.

On the great plains here you’ll notice the rusty, red dust and the large herds of elephants that like to roll in it, giving themselves a rosy coat.

We’ll also head to the waterholes where the wildlife go to escape the park’s arid environment.

Of note: Aruba Dam and Mudanda Rock are river-fed locations that are great for elephant spotting.

During your 3-day safari, look to your driver/guide for: information about the park and its inhabitants, any questions you may have, and most of all, his spirit of adventure and fun.

After a full day of game drives, it’s time for dinner. You can relax and enjoy the cuisine at your safari lodge or tented camp.

Day 2

Tsavo East - Tsavo West

1-Hour Drive

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

We’re on safari time now – the birds and wildlife have probably woken you up early. So, let’s go for your first game drive of the day and take in the great park in the morning light.

We’ll follow with a safari breakfast at your accommodation and then more exploration, looking for buffalo, eland, impala, elephant, and of course, lion.

But we have another reserve to discover – sister park Tsavo West. During the quick drive there we’ll be tracking for still more wildlife.

Riding into Tsavo West, you’ll immediately see that this park is greener and accented with rolling hills and foliage.

We’ll visit the water-fed oasis of Mzima Springs, a lush haven that is home to hippo, crocodile, exotic fish, and a big draw for the park’s other thirsty wildlife. We can even leave our Jeep and explore the palm embellished banks of the springs on foot. Look for the rich array of migrating birdlife that flock here as well.

Spotting endangered rhinos is always a special safari moment. Tsavo West hosts the Nguilia Rhino Sanctuary, home to over 80 black rhinos.

Relaxation and dinner will be at your Tsavo West accommodation.

Day 3

Tsavo West - Nairobi

5-Hour Drive

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

For our 3rd day on safari let’s go for another early game drive to check off any wildlife we may have missed. Have you yet spotted bushbaby, hartebeest, or impala?

How about monkeys in the nearby acacia trees? During this cool time of the day with the easy golden light, animal viewing is especially fun.

We’ll pause for breakfast at our accommodation and then pile into the Jeep for a final bonus game drive as we head out the park.

We should be back in Nairobi in the late afternoon, where we’ll drop you off at your hotel, the airport, or other destination of your choice.

Thanks so much for joining us on this Twin Parks Safari to our country’s most exciting wildlife. We will be in touch but please reach out to Africa Kenya Safaris when thinking about your next safari adventure.
