Detailed Description

This sensational 7-day safari trip of Kenya takes you on a tour through the natural majesty of the wilds of Kenya. Whether a history enthusiast, a cultural wanderer, a nature lover, or an adventure seeker, this tailor made adventure through eastern Kenya will carry you from the crystal waters of the ocean to the bronze waves of the prairie, from the remains of historic towns to lingering ships beneath the sea. The beaches are filled with powdery white sands. Elephants cover themselves with red earth. Wasini Island brings history and nature together for a view of reefs, caves, and a comfortable seaside delicacy. From the majesty of lions to stunning schools of fish, your journey through Kenya will be nothing less than amazing.

Your time in Kenya begins with your arrival in Mombasa. The modern city glitters with giant tusks hovering over the roadway welcoming you to the city. Stunning beaches line the coast giving you unparalleled access to the beauty of the water, warm sand, and the comfortable sun. Sit along the shore and bask in the warmth of the day, the sound of calm waters almost hypnotic. Dive beneath the ocean surface with a grand tour of the Mombasa Marine National Park. Within the crystal clear water you can watch the seahorses, stingrays, and schools of fish meander by. From the calming ocean breeze to the earthy gust of the savannah, you will make your way from the coastline to the beautiful gilded plains of Tsavo East. Take a game drive and witness elephants coat themselves in clay to keep cool in the heat. Lions laze against the yellowing grass. The wildlife of Kenya that you always imagined stretches out in the vast expanse of the savannah before you.

After an early morning game drive you will return to Mombasa and tour Old Town, where remnants of a colonial past continue to affect the culture and lives of the inhabitants. Journey outside of the city and see the remains of an antique Swahili town hidden within the canopy of the rainforest. Whether wandering through intact structures or within the museum, you will experience the historic majesty of Gedi, from its rich past to its vibrant present. Your final day in eastern Kenya can take you off of the lovely shores of Mombasa and onto the exciting Wasini Island. The coral glows like a prism beneath the calm sea. The island contains thrilling caves, rich with history, and abundant with vines and crystal water. Sit above the crashing waves and enjoy a fresh, decadent meal as the sun drifts along the horizon. With the journey through Kenya ending you will board your flight and make your way home; your journey through Kenya’s eastern wilds took you beyond the predictable and into the spectacular.
