Fantastic journey across Tsavo East and West in just three days on the Tsavo East and West Safari. The Mombasa Road Safari combines two outstanding natural parks, providing visitors with the finest possible opportunities to see wildlife, as well as beautiful scenery and interesting birds. The three-day Tsavo Safari begins and ends in Mombasa, Kenya.
Day 1: Mombasa- Tsavo East
The tour will start with a pick-up at your beach hotel or resort where you are staying. On our route between Mombasa and Nairobi, we will travel along the Mombasa–Nairobi Highway and take in the sights of the Kenyan countryside.
Travel time: 3hours
Day 2: Tsavo East- Tsavo West
In order to catch the sunrise across the plains, we will have to get up quite early. As the park begins to come to life, we see the first animals awaken and venture out onto the wide savannah. We’ll refuel at breakfast and set out again for the day in search of scavengers and grazers. Wildlife sightings are virtually guaranteed at Mudanda Rock, a whale-backed rock that serves as a natural dam. Elephants, and other creatures in this harsh and remote park, are drawn to this one-of-a-kind watering hole.
A brief trip to Tsavo West, which is close by, is on the agenda for later. Throughout the way, we’ll be on the lookout for the “Big Five” and other forms of wildlife. We’ll visit the Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary in Tsavo West National Park, a special habitat for these endangered animals. It is one of the few sites to see these gigantic but elusive animals, and the protected area spans 70 square kilometers (27 square miles).
Day 3: Tsavo West- Mombasa
The next day, we plan to rise and shine early and savor every moment. We’re out early exploring the park before breakfast with the animals. Also, once the morning dew is dried up by the sun, we can all take pleasure in the earth’s deepening hues.
Our safari meal will give us the strength to head out to Mzima Springs later on. A variety of aquatic and terrestrial organisms find sustenance and a home in this unexpected oasis nourished by clean water. The park’s rough plains provide a striking contrast to the park’s luxuriant beauty.
After parking our 4×4 vehicle, we’ll disembark and explore the area on foot, keeping an eye out for hippos, crocodiles, fish, and birds of all colors. Wildebeest, zebra, and giraffe are just few of the terrestrial animals that congregate here among the acacia trees.
