Day 1: From Mombasa to Tsavo West National Park
Feel the excitement as your safari finally starts now!
You are picked up at your hotel in the morning and drive toward Tsavo West in a comfortable safari vehicle. Watch the colourful hustle and bustle along the Kenyan streets until your first game drive starts at Tsavo River Gate.
You drive along Chyulu Hills and the Five Sisters, so keep your camera ready… You never know which animal crosses your way first! After your arrival at the luxurious Severin Safari Camp the Masai welcome you with a little refreshment and you have some time to discover the camp.
After a delicious lunch at the Out of Africa Restaurant you now look forward to a special highlight: You drive to the famous Mzima Springs, a wonderful green oasis and home to lots of hippos, crocodiles and fishes.
In the evening you enjoy dinner and the great meat specialties the chef is known for. Spend the remains of the evening at the campfire under the starry sky and with view to the lighted waterhole.
Day 2: Discover Tsavo West
Your early morning game drive starts at sunrise as now the wild animals can be spotted best. Afterwards you enjoy the breakfast buffet at the camp and have time to discover the amenities of the camp. Relax at the pool, enjoy a great massage or visit the little library or the camp shop.
After your à la carte lunch you drive to Poacher’s Lookout in the late afternoon. This old hiding point for poachers offers a breathtaking view to Mt. Kilimanjaro and you watch the beautiful sunset with sparkling wine and canapés. On your way back you experience the African wilderness at night - an unforgettable experience!
Look forward to a delicious dinner at the camp after an exciting day amidst the bush.
Day 3: From Tsavo West to Shimba Hills
Your last game drive after breakfast leads you along the Roaring Rocks and to Tsavo River Gate. Keep your eyes open for the animals that you haven’t seen yet.
Now you leave Tsavo West National Park and drive towards Shimba Hills. En route you stop at Sagala Lodge for lunch, and now you finally enter the rainforest.
A short game drive brings you to Shimba Hills Lodge, the only tree lodge at the coast. It is located directly at a waterhole and offers great views over the tropical surroundings and their inhabitants. During dinner you listen to the sounds of the wilderness at night.
Day 4: Adventure Shimba Hills and back to Mombasa
Discover more of the park’s great animal kingdom during an exciting early morning game drive. Back at the lodge you enjoy breakfast and afterwards drive to the Sheldrick Waterfalls. This excursion lasts about 2 hours and as you will hike down to the water basin we recommend to wear sturdy shoes.
