Our 2-Day Tsavo East and West National Park Safari

Daily Private Safari Tour in 4x4 Jeep

Travel From your Diani Beach Resort to Both Tsavo Parks

Starting from/returning to Diani Beach area resorts. We’ll pick you up from your hotel.

Enjoy this amazing safari in a customized pop-up roof Natural World 4×4 Safari Jeep that has: Portable fridge/Cooler Box, 4 Binoculars, long-range high-frequency radio, Sand bags, 4G/LTE broadband WIFI connectivity, Power Outlets AC 230V, First Aid Kit, Safari Guide Books, Baby Seats A(on request), Side steps (on request) and above all a professional multi-lingual safari guide that will ensure you have a memorable safari experience.

Enjoy the variety of BOTH Tsavo Parks on this 2-day safari getaway. The largest animal reserve in Kenya, Tsavo East National Park offers visitors a “big five” assortment of wildlife and hundreds of bird species. Its rugged landscape has a charm that will enhance your sightings of big cats, buffalo, elephant, impala and zebra.

Its neighbor, Tsavo West National Park is also an immense reserve with a long history. You’ll be looking out upon a variety of landforms here from rolling plains to volcanic cones to green natural springs. Together, the parks offer a rich sampling of an authentic African safari.

There’s much to see on this 2-day adventure, so Natural World Kenya Safaris will pick you up early at your Diani Beach resort. As you travel to the parks, the sunrise igniting the rolling landscape will set the tone for your safari. In a short while you’ll reach Tsavo East with its red soil expanse, and you’ll head out on the first of many game drives.

Mudanda Rock/Aruba Dam

These sites are perfect viewing areas for an assortment of wildlife. The natural dam beneath Mudanda Rock is an excellent site for game spotting as hundreds of animals come here to drink. The reservoir at man-made Aruba Dam also attracts a wealth of wildlife, especially elephants.

Tsavo West

We’ll head to neighboring Tsavo West Park for your evening accommodations. On day 2 it will be an early rise to view another African dawn and the stirring of wildlife emerging from the bush and the plain.

Then we’ll take off for the cool green of Mzima Springs. We’ll slip into the easy quiet of a walking safari which will allow us to view hippos, crocodiles, fish and bird species. The lushness here will stand in contrast to the wild landscapes of Tsavo. Time permitting, we will also visit the rhino sanctuary.

After 2 full safari days enjoying the wonders of Tsavo, we will head back to the Diani Beach resort area, arriving in the early evening. You may be tired, but you’ll be filled with great stories to tell.

All-Inclusive. Your 2-Day Tsavo East & Tsavo West safari includes all ground transportation, accommodation in a choice of economy, comfort or luxury safari lodges/tented camps, park entrance fees, game drives, all meals and pickup/drop off at your Diani and south coast locations.
