Two famous lodges in Tsavo area. Salt Lick Lodge, built like a
medieval fortress standing on stilts to allow best game viewing, and
Finch Hatton's Tented Lodge to experience the real Out of Africa
with the view of the sun.
In the morning you will be picked from your Beach Hotel and
depart by road on safari 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 rondavels 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. Depart after lunch
to Tsavo West National Park. The Park offers tremendous views with
diverse habitats, ranging from mountains, river forest, plains,
lakes and wooded grassland. Its plains borders with Tanzania. Have

Lodge. This luxury ¬tented lodge, named after the aristocrat Denys
Finch Hatton who introduced Royalty to the
