DAY BY DAY ITINERARY:
DAY 1: LUMO CONSERVANCY – TAITA HILLS
This morning let your guide take you to Lumo Sanctuary , an exclusive conservancy between Tsavo East and West.
Your days here will be spent marveling at the beauty of wildlife, rising early with the sun for game drives followed by a full brunch prepared for you at camp.
During sunset, enjoy an unforgettable sundowner, with a drink in hand and 180 degrees view on the endless savannah below.
This is the accomodation we have selected for you:
DAY 2: TAITA HILLS AND LUMO CONSERVANCY
Full day today within Lumo and Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary.
During midday hours you can rest up in your tent and enjoy uninterrupted views over the endless savannah, the perfect spot to quietly observe or contemplate the wilderness.
And, as soon as the sun goes down, you will start the night game drive, looking for nocturnal wildlife, like genets, african civets, bushbaby and , yes!, predators on a hunt! If you are lucky you may spot the elusive melanistic serval, common in this area but very rare in Africa!
You will end with a fabulous dinner at the lodge.
DAY 3: TSAVO EAST
Your last morning game drive within Lumo Sanctuary has arrived. But before to leave this beautiful place, you will stop somewhere in the savannah for your bush breakfast, toasting to Africa with a glass of champagne in your hands!
The distance between Lumo Sanctuary and Tsavo East is very short and you will travel along villages and plantations, outside the natural reserves, for only one hour.
You will reach your new tented camp for lunch time.
In the afternoon you will explore with your guide the surrounding area, which is full of wildlife and several lion prides.
Dinner and stay at the camp.
This is the accomodation we have selected for you. A very elegant , no fenced , tented camp. The best for a peaceful stay in the bush.
DAY 4: YOUR JOURNEY ENDS
It’s time to bid farewell to the bush.
After breakfast you will do your last game drive, as you go to Sala Gate.
You will reach the coast in time for lunch.
After breakfast and a morning game drive you will go back to the coast for your Beach Holiday: you may choose to stay at our exclusive Nyumba ya Paka Boutique Hotel or you can rent our whole villa Lions House, if you are a big group.
