Your Destination

Diani Beach

Overlooking the gorgeous Indian Ocean, this 25km stretch coastline on Kenya's South coast is an idyllic tropical paradise of white sands, swaying palms and turquoise water. The colourful coral reefs are teeming with marine life beneath the surface - dive in and see for yourself! Many other watersports are also readily available here including windsurfing, kite surfing and snorkelling.

As one of Kenya's most desirable beach destinations, the area is well equipped for luxury tourism - you can find numerous beach bars, craft markets, shops and restaurants.

Tsavo East National Park

Tsavo is made up of two separate parks, Tsavo East National Park and Tsavo West National Park. Located in Coast Province of Kenya in between Nairobi City and Mombasa. Tsavo is nearly 22,000km2, being the largest national park in Kenya and one of the largest in the world.

The park was split into two due to the railway going from Mombasa to the interior of Kenya. Tsavo East is definitely worth a trip - visitors can set off on a game drive across the seemingly empty wilderness and return to camp three hours later without having seen a single other vehicle.

The sight of dust-red elephant wallowing, rolling and spraying each other with the midnight blue waters of palm-shaded Galana River is one of the most evocative images in Africa. This, along with the 300 kilomtere long Yatta Plateau, the longest lava flow in the world, make for an adventure unlike any other in the Tsavo East. The park forms the largest protected area in Kenya and is home to most of the larger mammals, vast herds of dust – red elephant, Rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard, pods of hippo, crocodile, waterbucks, lesser Kudu, gerenuk and the prolific bird life features 500 recorded species.

Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary

Taita Hills Sanctuary is a private wildlife conservancy of 28,000 acres at the foot of the Taita Hills bordering Tsavo West National Park, one of the world's largest game reserves.

The Sanctuary provides a safe environment to over 50 species of mammals and 300 species of birds within 28,000 acres of rolling savanna and woodland habitats. Large numbers of wildlife come to drink at the waterholes, so Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge provides a rare opportunity to view animals at close proximity in their natural habitat.

The Sanctuary is a success story in sustainable conservation where wildlife - including elephant, lion, buffalo and giraffe - thrive. Game drives are tightly controlled to ensure that animals are not harassed and some areas are completely closed to vehicles. This commitment to responsible ecotourism, which has been so well supported by visitors, ensures that the Sanctuary and all its wildlife will continue to prosper.

Shimba Hills National Reserve

Shimba Hills National Reserve is located 45km from Diani Beach. The reserve includes the second largest rainforest in East Africa and is where a great diversity of Kenya's plant species are found, many of which are endangered.

The Shimba Hills National Reserve is home to many elephants, and is the only place in Kenya where tourists can see the rare and endangered Sable Antelope.

The Reserve is also known for its excellent bird watching opportunities - keep watch for the Croaking Cisticola or the Zanzibar Red Bishop.
