Tsavo West is seen as a mre scenic park. Despite having high population of wild animals like hundred of elephant herds, lions and leopards, spotting them is very difficult as it comprises of thick shrubs.

The flows were formed only a few hundred years ago and local peoples believed that it was the devil himself emerging from the earth. This vast expanse of folded black lava spreads for 50 sq km across the savannah near the Chyulu Hills, looking strangely. Proceed to exit Tsavo West via Chyulu Gate and drive towards our lodge or camp in Amboseli or close to Amboseli. Arriving here in time for lunch and we follow this by an afternoon rest in our lodge.

What others say about us.

Denis was amazing at customising out trip for our needs.

We went cycling with giraffes

We then went to The Maasai Mara Game reserve & had an amazing time see 4 out of the big 5. Joseph our driver was very nice & very knowledgeable about all the wild life.

We also go to see the Masai Mara Tribes which was such a cool experience

I would highly recommend Africa Vacation Safaris, for there local knowledge & more importantly for making the whole trip a really fun experience.

Denis and John were awesome. Denis put together the exact trip I wanted to the rarely-visited Meru and Kora National Parks. We had the best adventure getting to Meru from Nairobi and managed to see 4 of the Big 5 in our time there. Our drive to Kora was so much fun and we had a blast hanging out on the bank of the Tana River. Big 5 sightings were completed during our 2 days at Samburu Reserve. John is an excellent guide and driver and interacts in a fun way to teach you about the animals. I don’t know how many safaris Denis has been on, but I just love his enthusiasm and energy. I even had them take me on a game drive in Nairobi NP on my last day in Kenya a month after we first met.
