An early departure takes you east, across the spectacular Shetani lava flow, reminder of the molten outpouring that spilled down the scenic slopes of the nearby Chyulu Hills over the last three centuries. A zig? zagging road through scrub thorn and acacia leads you into Tsavo National Park, which together (East and West) form the largest of Kenya’s parks. Spotting game as you go, especially gerenuk, you’ll reach your lodge by lunchtime. After lunch, depart for and afternoon game drive arriving back to the lodge as the sunsets.
Overnight at Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge on a full board basis.
Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge - Tsavo West National Park
Set in the heart of Tsavo National Park is Kilaguni Lodge, one of the best game viewing lodges in Tsavo. It was here that Dennis Finch-Hatton hunted and where the lions were once famous for eating the workers on the Nairobi to Mombasa railway line. Only 100 metres from the main dining area lie a series of waterholes that attracts animals from miles around. Mzima Springs is also located close by, where underground water from Kilimanjaro and the Chyulus meet, a terrific spot for looking at hippo through an underwater viewing room. The lodge is stylish, modern and has everything one would need when staying in the bush, including pool, evening entertainment, restaurant, bars, shops and rooms with great views
