This 3 Day Amboseli Tsavo Classic Safari Getaway is an ideal short break from Mombasa and can be added onto other itineraries. Experience two iconic National Parks which are famed for their Elephant sightings during your Kenya wildlife safari.
One of the highlights of this Kenya safari holiday is the Mzima Springs in Tsavo which have crystal clear waters meaning you can watch Hippo paddling around and even see fish. Keep a look out for large herds of Buffalo which frequent this area as well.
The next day travel to Tsavo West which is famous for the Man Eaters of Tsavo, a pair of Lions that killed many people in the early twentieth century. The park has many interesting geological features due to volcanic activity. The game viewing is excellent with good sightings of Lion and Giraffe.
