Here is a guide to a safari to Taita Hills Game Sanctuary where you will see the attractions of this reserve that 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.
Day 1: 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 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.
Day 2: 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.
