Spot incredible wildlife on game drives in two national parks and spend three days relaxing on Kenya’s unspoilt Mombasa beaches

On this fantastic 10-day Kenyan adventure, you'll enjoy several game drives into the heart of Tsavo West and Amboseli National Parks. There'll be opportunities to spot incredible wildlife, including cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, zebras, lions, crocodiles and hippos. At both national parks, you'll be based in luxury safari lodges offering spectacular views of the surrounding landscapes.

Halfway through, you'll switch the savannah for the sea, as you head to the north coast of Mombasa to check in at an full-board beachfront resort.

Your days here will be free to spend as you wish, either taking part in a series of excellent optional activities or simply relaxing with a drink by the three swimming pools, in the shaded tropical gardens, or on the exquisite beach lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

This ultimate Kenyan adventure has been created with solo travellers in mind, so you can look forward to meeting friendly, like-minded adventurers.

    Amboseli National Park
    Amboseli, Kenya

    Today you'll arrive in Nairobi, receiving a warm welcome from your tour manager before taking a scenic drive into the Amboseli National Park, where you'll check in to your luxury room and enjoy lunch.

    After lunch, you'll embark on your first game drive into the park. This is an exciting opportunity to see a wide range of wildlife, such as lions, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, and zebras in their natural habitat, and enjoy views of Mount Kilimanjaro.

    After the game drive, you'll return to the lodge for a welcome cocktail and dinner - the perfect opportunity to get to know your fellow travellers before the rest of the trip.

    There's also the chance to take an optional game drive with a sundowner as the sun sets. You'll take a short evening game drive ending at Observation Hill, where you'll enjoy a glass of bubbly as the sky transforms into golden pink hues.

    Amboseli National Park and Masai Village
    Amboseli, Kenya

    After breakfast today, you'll set off on a morning game drive, traversing different parts of the park, each with unique landscapes and wildlife. Keep an eye out for herds of elephants and prides of lions wandering through the sprawling savannah or reclining in the shade.

    You'll then return to the lodge for lunch and some time to relax before another game drive in the afternoon. As the sun sets, you may catch a glimpse of some nocturnal animals, like hyenas and leopards.

    There's also the chance to join an optional visit to a nearby Masai village today, to meet the local people and learn more about this famous East African tribe's culture and traditions.

    You'll enjoy dinner at the lodge this evening, perhaps followed by a drink at one of the three bars with some of your fellow travellers, where you can reflect on an exciting day.

  4. Day
    4
    Tsavo West National Park and Mzima Springs
    Kilaguni, Kenya

    After an early breakfast you'll check out of the lodge before taking a picturesque route to the popular Tsavo West National Park, backed by the Chyulu Hills, one of the youngest volcanic mountain ranges in the world.

    This reserve is known for the Mzima Springs, a natural pool of fresh spring water, which is a vital source of water for wildlife in the area. You'll stop at these springs and have a chance to view the resident hippos from an underwater hide.

    You'll then continue to Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge, where you'll check in, have lunch, and head out on an afternoon game drive. With your guide at the helm, you'll navigate the park of rocky terrain, lava flows, and grasslands, home to cheetahs, leopards, elephants, giraffes, buffalos, zebras, and various antelopes.

    Later in the afternoon, you'll journey back to the lodge, perhaps enjoying a sundowner at the bar, overlooking a busy waterhole.

  5. Day
    5
    Tsavo West National Park and Lion Rock
    Kilaguni, Kenya

    Today you can opt for a special breakfast on the neighbouring Lion Rock, an immense embankment of volcanic rock, offering views across sprawling plains. Travelling early in the morning, you'll enjoy a gentle game drive and enjoy a full English breakfast laid out on its summit. You can then tuck into your breakfast while taking in the vista.

    It's then time for another day of wildlife spotting, starting with a morning game drive, on the reserve. Look out for some of the more unique inhabitants, like the gerenuk, a long-necked antelope that stands on its hind legs to reach leaves from trees.

    Lunch will be served back at the lodge, perhaps followed by a dip in the swimming pool. In the afternoon you'll enjoy a final game drive, during which you can hopefully tick off any remaining animals off your safari wish list. This park is also a birdwatcher's paradise with over 600 species recorded, and your guide will be on hand to provide the best viewing points.

    You'll then enjoy a final dinner in the bush and drinks on the terrace to wrap up your time in Tsavo West.

    Mombasa North
    Mombasa, Kenya

    Today you'll be swapping safaris for the sun and sand of the African coast. After enjoying a final breakfast at the lodge, you'll depart for the sandy beaches of Mombasa North, lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

    This transfer will take you via Mombasa, the second-largest city in Kenya, known for its rich history and diverse blend of cultures. 

    Once you've arrived at the Voyager Beach Resort, set right on the shore, you'll be able to enjoy a late lunch and the rest of the afternoon will be free to unwind.

    As well as being in an ideal beachfront location, the resort also offers a range of activities and amenities, including water sports, a swimming pool, and a spa.

  7. Days
    7-9
    Voyager Beach Resort
    Mombasa, Kenya

    Enjoy three days of fun and relaxation, doing as much or as little as you like. There's a programme of organised activities, ranging from beach volleyball to water aerobics and yoga classes. But if you prefer, you can just lounge by the pool or beach, with a cocktail in hand, taking in the views.

    Those wanting to explore beyond the resort can discover the coastal region and the old town of Mombasa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its winding streets and historic buildings dating back to the 16th century. A trip to the Shimba Hills National Reserve, teeming with wildlife, is another option, as well as a guided tour of a local spice farm. This area is also home to some of the best diving and snorkelling sites in Kenya, so you can venture out to see dazzlingly colourful marine life and coral reefs.

    There's also an optional half-day tour to a traditional Kenyan village, where you'll have the opportunity to observe the local people dancing and meet with a traditional medicine man.

    On day eight, there's the chance to join a dinner cruise aboard a traditional sailing boat. This experience allows you to sip on cocktails and sample Swahili snacks while gliding past the old town of Mombasa at sunset. A five-course dinner will then be served before the charcoal grills are moved away to create a dance floor with a live band.

    On your final day, a farewell dinner is served, where you can reflect on the week with your newfound friends.
