BIG TSAVO

DAY 1: NAIROBI - TSAVO WEST NATIONAL PARK

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 formost is the famous Mzima Springs where up to 227.3 million liters 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 campsite or lodge.

DAY 2: TSAVO WEST

After breakfast, we have a full day game drive, packed lunch provided. Other interestng 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 poachers lookout. The volcanic Chaimu Crater, less than 200years old and composed of black coke, is worth visiting and can be climed if one is intersted. The area is a good place to look out for klipspringer, a small antelop 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.

Dinner and overnight at campsite or lodge.

DAY 3: TSAVO WEST - NAIROBI

Soon after breakfast we drive back to Nairobi.

(Safari to Tsavo East can be organized if one wants to visit the East).
