4 Nights - Bush to Beach Safari
Our Bush & Beach Safaris are tailored to your desires, so you can spend more time in the remote outback with shorter trips to the beach, or you may lounge by the sea for an extended time with limited tours of local protected areas.
A longer beach retreat with a shorter safari option suits the needs of some of our European guests who are planning a first time or repeat bush and beach trip to the East African coastline in Kenya. You may wish to board a flight that arrives into Mombasa, sometimes on a weekly charter flight. You can then spend a few days on the beachfront then journey out into parks and reserves like Tsavo, Amboseli or even Masai Mara for two to three nights for safari game driving, village visits, nature walks, hiking and other wilderness activities before returning to your seaside hotel for the remaining period of your vacation. The third option is to have equal time on safari and at the seashore.
Day 1: Nairobi to Tsavo west national park
On the first day of the safari, you will be picked from the airport by your safari driver upon arrival, from the airport you will embark on your drive to Tsavo West national park which takes approximately 6-7 hours. Tsavo West national park is a popular tourist destination situated in the semi-arid area of Taru Desert near the town of Voi in Taita Taveta County formally known as Coast province, the park is famous for hosting a large population of man-eaters’ lions and red elephants which get their colour from the red dust they roll in. You will arrive in the park in the evening, check into your lodge, have dinner and stay overnight.
