We explore both wildlife parks on 4x4 game drives in search of Africa's Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife found in these beautiful reserves of southern Kenya. Tsavo, best known for its lions, is one of Kenya's oldest and one of the world's largest reserves. Amboseli is famous for its large elephant herds and close-range wildlife sightings with the majestic Kilimanjaro as a scenic backdrop.

Itinerary for this Tour

  • Two nights at Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge in Tsavo National Park
  • Two nights at Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge in Amboseli National Park

Day 1: Nairobi to Tsavo National Park – Kenya

Arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to be met by our English-speaking driver who transfers you to Tsavo National Park in southeastern Kenya.

After about a three and a half hour drive we arrive at Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge, located inside the national park. We have lunch and settle in at the lodge, which offers sweeping views over the plains and a watering hole. Then we set off on our first 4x4 game drive in search of the wildlife found in Tsavo National Park, one of the hugest game parks in the world.

Back at the lodge it's time for dinner and relaxing in the bar with your travel companions. The views reveal Kilimanjaro in the distance and game watching at the watering hole is excellent. At night you can hear the sounds of animals from your bed.

  • Lunch, Dinner & Accommodation: Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge

About Tsavo National Park

Tsavo East and Tsavo West together cover some 13747km², making this one of the biggest game reserves on earth. Famous for the lions of Tsavo, this reserve is also home to the rest of the Big Five of Africa – buffalos, leopards, rhinos and elephants. Other inhabitants include a variety of antelopes, giraffes, hyenas, cheetahs and hippos.

Day 2: Tsavo National Park – Kenya

Wake up to views of the African wilderness and enjoy breakfast. Today we embark on 4x4 game drives, morning and afternoon, in Tsavo Park. On our game drives in this vast park you can expect to see plenty of animals roaming the arid plains.

At Kilaguni optional activities include walking safaris with a trained naturalist, bush dinners, Mzima Springs visits, sundowners and tours of the Rhino Sanctuary. Tonight you can look out for animals at the waterhole, sit back and relax and enjoy an optional traditional dance performance.

Day 3: Tsavo National Park to Amboseli National Park – Kenya

Start with breakfast before leaving Kilaguni and the magnificent Tsavo National Park.

After about an hour and a half we arrive at the famous Amboseli National Park, second only to Kenya's Mara in popularity. We stay at Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge, tucked away in a grove of trees inside Amboseli. Lunch is followed by some free time to relax and enjoy the facilities at the lodge, which features a pool.

Then we venture into this beautiful national park on an afternoon game drive, which usually offers close-up photographic opportunities of the wild animals.

  • Breakfast: Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge
  • Lunch, Dinner & Accommodation: Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge

Day 4: Amboseli National Park – Kenya

Day four is a full day of game viewing in our 4x4 vehicle, with lunch back at the lodge between morning and afternoon drives. Amboseli National Park, like Tsavo, covers open plains and features low vegetation which make it easy to spot the animals.

In the evening we return for dinner at the lodge, offering lovely vistas of Amboseli's open grasslands and marshes with Mount Kilimanjaro as the majestic backdrop.

About Amboseli National Park

Amboseli is famous for close encounters with big herds of elephants. The game park is a photographer's paradise combining close range wildlife sightings with the scenic landscapes, featuring the towering Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest mountain. The vegetation of the park varies seasonally with green swamps in rainy times and arid bush in dry periods, both well-suited to game viewing. Sightings include the big cats of Africa, as well as the Big Five of Africa.

Day 5: Amboseli National Park to Nairobi – Kenya

On the last day of our Kenyan wildlife adventure we have breakfast and then drive back through rural Kenya to the capital city, Nairobi. Upon arrival in Nairobi you can be transferred to the international airport or post-safari accommodation of your choice.
