Mombasa – Taita Hills – Tsavo West National Park

The best time to travel to Kenya is in the dry season from December to February. Temperatures are pleasantly warm, and there's hardly any rain. The lack of water means that the animals rarely move away from the waterholes, making wildlife observation more likely.

After landing, a driver will pick you up and directly take you to your accommodation by the sea: Severin Sea Lodge. Enjoy the azure sea and sunbathe on the white beaches of Kenya. Take this time to relax after the flight because you have a packed safari adventure that awaits you in the next few days!

The kids will love the ride through the pulsating Mombasa because of the exceptional nature.

From the lodge, you may already see animals at the nearby waterhole! Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge is a beautiful lodge that impresses all. The unique accommodations are built on stilts and connected by wooden walkways. Staying at the lodge is already an unforgettable experience because the animals can pass under the rooms! Your photos will come out remarkable since the lodge's architecture allows you to have a new perspective directly above the wildlife. When the midday heat is over, start a game drive that ends at dusk. Round off the eventful day with a nice dinner.

The crater lake is deep blue and surrounded by a crater rim up to 100 meters high. Your kid-friendly driver will teach you and the family about the exciting history of the lake's volcanic origin.

The crystal-clear springs nestle in a beautiful oasis of palm trees and acacia trees and supply Mombasa's city with water.
