Our 3-day Tsavo East and West National Park Safari

Daily Private Safari Tour

Surf N’ Safari! Diani Beach to the Beauty of Tsavo

3 Days, 2 Nights: Tsavo East National Park – Tsavo West National Park

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.

You can literally go from surf to safari with our 3-day Tsavo Park encounter. In these oldest and biggest parks in Kenya you’ll get to explore the rugged, red-soil charm of Tsavo East and the green rolling landscape of its sister park, Tsavo West.

Between the two parks, there’s no limit to the types of wildlife you’ll be seeking, including the big cats, the famous Tsavo Lions, unique red elephants, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, rhino, ostrich and so much more.

A 3-day safari at Tsavo means plenty of game drives and time to discover the wildlife and special features of this dynamic natural reserve. You’ll see immense painted plains, extinct volcanic cones, verdant springs and ragged rocky peaks.

Your driver/guide from Natural World Kenya Safaris will pick you up from your Diani Beach or south coast resort in a private pop-top safari minivan and head out to Tsavo East National Park. You’ll arrive just a few hours later… in time for lunch and then the first of many game drives in the parks.

Accommodations this first evening will be in the park at the lodge or tented camp of your choice.

Day 2 – East to West

An early morning rise ensures the sight of a new African dawn and a game drive to greet the animals as they emerge into the fresh day. We’ll navigate the wild savanna here searching for the rich variety of wildlife that inhabit Tsavo.

After breakfast we’ll head out on another game drive scouting the plains for the park’s diverse wildlife. Then, it’s a short drive to Tsavo West National Park.

Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary

Tsavo West is home to this sanctuary where some 80 of the park’s endangered black rhinos live in a protected area. We’ll visit this special enclave looking out for these shy creatures.

Accommodations for this evening will be at Tsavo West.

Day 3 – Mzima Springs

Another early rise in the dawn’s soft light will bring you close to the many hunters and grazers now stirring in the park.

Today we will also visit Mzima Springs which lies in cool, green contrast to the deep, brown savannahs. We will disembark from our safari vehicle to walk the soft verdant undergrowth and view the wildlife here. Hippos, crocodiles, many exotic fish and unique birdlife populate this tranquil spot. You’ll feel you’ve truly experienced Tsavo after a refreshing walking safari here.

After lunch, you’ll hop onboard your safari vehicle and head back to the welcoming warmth and waves of the Kenya coast.

All-Inclusive. Your 3-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.
