Day 1: Nairobi to Tsavo West

We depart by road for Tsavo West National Park. Arrive in time for lunch then an optional afternoon or evening game drive. Tsavo West is the most visited section in Tsavo National Park, offering many attractions apart from its wildlife. The foremost is the famous Mzima Springs where up to 227.3 million litres of cool crystal clear water flows out of the ground through porous volcanic rocks. The water is believed to originate from Chuyulu Hills, via an underground river.
Dinner and overnight at Salt Lick Safari lodge

Lunch and dinner are included

Day 2: Tsavo West game drive

After breakfast, we have a full day game drive, packed lunch provided. Other interesting places to visit are the Roaring Rocks, which get their name from the wind that hurtles through them. From here there are wonderful views over Tsavo from the top of a 98m rock face; similar views can be experienced from the poacher’s lookout. The volcanic Chaimu Crater, less than 200years old and composed of black coke, is worth visiting and can be climbed if one is interested. The area is a good place to look out for klip springer, a small antelope that’s as agile as its Swahili name mbuzi mawe(mountain goat). In the south-west corner of Tsavo West is Lake Jipe, which has the Kenyan-Tanzanian border running through it.
