This overnight safari to the Tsavo region offers a great 'taster' for those new to the delights of a safari, or those simply wishing to see some action away from the beach.
Day 1 - Ngutuni Game Lodge
Depart your Mombasa hotel and drive to the Ngutuni Lodge situated in the 10,000 acre Ngutuni Game Sanctuary that adjoins the famous Tsavo East National Park. On entering the reserve go for a game drive en route to the lodge. After lunch head out for an afternoon game drive in Tsavo East National Park, accompanied by an expert guide where you will see some of park's abundant wildlife including elephant, lion, buffalo, kudu, zebra and giraffe. Return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
Ngutuni Lodge is set against the backdrop of the Sagala Hills and offers comfortable and rustic accommodation. There is a spacious deck overlooking a waterhole which is popular with a variety of wildlife that come to drink.
Day 2 - Ngutuni & Mombasa
Another chance to see some of the residents of the reserve on a morning game drive before returning to the lodge for breakfast. The safari then heads back to Mombasa where you will be dropped off at your beach hotel.
