Your Destinations

Diani Beach

Situated along the white sandy beaches of the south coast, and surrounded by swaying coconut palm trees and magnificent old stoic baobabs - this is Diani Beach, Mombasa. Your hotel is located 40 km away from the Likoni Ferry, 900m from the Leisure Lodge Golf Club, 1.6 km from the Nakumatt Diani Shopping Mall and a 45-minute drive from Wasini Island.

Tsavo National Park

The joint mass of Tsavo West and Tsavo East National Parks forms one of the largest national parks in the world and covers a massive 4% of Kenya's total land area.  

Tsavo East, one of the last great wilderness landscapes on Earth, offers a vast arena of parched scrub and heat-shimmering bush, which is washed by the azure waters of the Galana River, guarded by the Yatta Plateau and patrolled by some of the largest elephant herds in the world.

Tsavo West National Park, on the other hand, offers a panorama of sensational landscapes - from swamps, natural springs and rocky peaks to extinct volcanic cones, rolling plains and outcrops dusted with greenery. Offering crystal clear water gushing from the lava rock that is the Mzima Springs, to the Acacia woodlands and magnificent game viewing, Tsavo West is a beautiful, rugged wilderness.

Amboseli

Amboseli is one of Kenya's oldest and most-visited parks. Much of its magic is derived from the fact that it is towered over by the snow-capped bulk of Mount Kilimanjaro which, at 5,896 metres above sea level is Africa's highest mountain. Comparatively compact, the park is dotted with a series of bright green swamps, in which great herds of elephants can often be seen half-submerged amongst the papyrus grasses. As renowned for its photo-opportunities as it for its large elephant population, Amboseli remains one of the great safari destinations.

Amboseli is world-famous for its populations of large mammals, most especially elephants of which there are around 700. The swamps are a centre of activity for elephants, hippos, buffaloes and abundant water birds. The surrounding flat grasslands are home to grazing antelopes. Spotted hyenas are plentiful, as are jackals, warthogs, olive baboons and vervet monkeys.

Jacaranda Indian Ocean Beach Resort 4*
