Taita Hills Game Sanctuary borders Tsavo West National Park and
gives shelter to many animals because there is plenty of water.
Large herds of elephants and other plains game migrate to the
sanctuary from Tsavo each year.
In the morning you will be picked from your Beach Hotel and
depart by road to Taita Hills Game Sanctuary. Have lunch on arrival
at Taita Hills Lodge. After lunch, game drive in the sanctuary until
sunset, and chances are good to see lions as well. Dinner and
overnight at Salt Lick Lodge. Salt Lick Lodge is especially
memorable for its imaginative structure. A complex of roundavels sits
on stilts over a series of water holes. The two-storey towers,
topped by peaked thatch roofs, are connected by open-air-bridges,
creating an African fantasy of a medieval fortress. The lodge has
been built with game viewing in mind - you can see animals in all
directions because it offers spectacular open views.
Have an early morning game drive returning to the lodge for
breakfast. After breakfast, continue with the mid-morning game drive
in the sanctuary with lunch at Taita Hills lodge. After lunch depart
back to Mombasa arriving in the early evening. Transfer and drop off
at your Beach Hotel.
