Our tip: Register your early riser breakfast at the reception the evening before because it will ensure you are well-rested and replenished for your exciting day! With a four-wheeled safari vehicle, you will drive about seven hours toward the Bachuma Gate and the Tsavo River Gate. During the journey, you will have a short stopover and receive your packed lunch.

Time to grab your camera because you are well into the first game drive and exciting safari! As the excited, tingling sensation rushes throughout your body, the driver will open up the roof of the vehicle to give you a better view of the animals. The road to Severin Safari Camp will take you along the Chyulu Hills, giving you one of the best views of Mount Kilimanjaro. Sit back and enjoy the view of Five Sisters Hill and the endless expanse of African savannahs.

At noon, you will arrive at Severin Safari Camp and enjoy a lunch at Out of Africa Restaurant. Take a moment to freshen up in your room, then join us in the afternoon for a trip to the famous Mzima Springs! Nestled in a dreamlike oasis of palm trees and acacia, it lies amid dry steppes and eternal bubbling springs. Surround yourself with the fantastic green scenery and the stunning dried landscape. Mount Kilimanjaro supplies Mzima Springs and all of Mombasa with water. Numerous animals, such as fish, crocodiles, and hippos, are lured here.

After an eventful day, a delicious à la carte dinner awaits you! Choose a delightful meat specialty from the hot stone or cooked fondue style. At the evening campfire in front of the illuminated waterhole, you can end the day in peace and enjoy the safari romance under the African starry sky.

3 nights at Severin Safari Camp**** with full board in a tent, Tsavo West, Kenya.

Wake up with the beautiful sunrise and start your morning game drive!

The early morning temperatures make it the perfect time to observe the animals that live near the springs of the Tsavo River. This place serves as the lifeblood of hippos and crocodiles, making it an excellent spot to take unforgettable pictures. Since you started your day in an adventurous way, you only deserve the most delicious breakfast buffet at the camp. How you spend the rest of the day is up to you! Unwind by the pool and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the wilderness, or treat yourself to a relaxing massage at Kenbali Spa. Inspired by the African wilderness and centuries-old Southeast Asian feel-good techniques, the spa is an oasis of tranquility and relaxation. Choose the massage that best suits your needs with the help of a trained therapist.

At noon, you will have lunch at the camp's restaurant. From the restaurant, enjoy uninterrupted views of the water hole and the numerous animals it attracts. As soon as the midday heat is over, head to Poacher's Lookout, an old hiding-place for poachers. Once again, grab your camera and snap the majestic panorama of the 5895-meter-high Kilimanjaro. The breathtaking sight is best when the clouds dissipate, and the sharp outline of the mountain shoots high into the sky. Savor an evening with sparkling wine, canapés, and African sounds during sunset.

At dusk, head back to the camp and experience the African savannah at night! Severin Safari Camp will prepare a delicious dinner at their unique restaurant.

Ready for yet another safari adventure? Wake up early and head out to the bush with your guide! Accompanied by a knowledgeable Massai, embark on an exploratory walk through the African wilderness. During the tour, you will learn all kinds of exciting facts about the ecosystem, the diverse birdlife, and other park dwellers. The Maasai have a fascinating knowledge of nature and convey everything worth knowing about their homeland in an exciting way. Afterward, go back to the camp and fill your growling stomach with the breakfast buffet. How would you like to design your day now? How about a relaxing massage in the wellness area? Or would you prefer to rest on your terrace where you can let your eyes wander over the landscape?

Do you think the morning adventure was the only highlight of the day? Surprise! Amidst the African wilderness, experience a memorable dining experience as you savor the lunch prepared by the camp's chefs. From there, you will set off on another game drive through the beautiful landscapes of the Tsavo National Park. With a little patience and luck, you will encounter some elephants! Why do they look so different from the gray elephants you usually see in photos? The red, graceful animals receive their unique color thanks to the earth's red dirt, which they use for cleaning.

In the evening, watch animals come to the waterhole from your favorite spot in the restaurant, or enjoy the campfire's view.

Today it's time to say goodbye to the wilderness of Tsavo National Park and drive towards Tsavo River Gate. You will pass the Roaring Rock that served as a hideaway to the Mau Mau warriors during Kenya's War of Independence. Keep your eyes peeled because this will be your last chance to see the Big Five before leaving the National Park. To avoid the strain of a long drive, you will have a short lunch break halfway through

Time for the seaside holiday you’ve been waiting for! After an exciting few days exploring the National Park, it’s finally time to forget about reality and relax under the African sun.
