A relaxed 14 day Beach and Safari combo

Enjoy the pleasures of the nearby beach, and then spend the first of your balmy evenings under the Kenyan sky.
Day 3 & 4 - Enjoy lazy days and warm nights as you soak up the pleasures of life by the ocean. Why not try the water sports, take a stroll along the shoreline, or simply curl up with a book. At day’s end, sun-downer in hand, do nothing more than gaze out across the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean, at the hotel’s doorstep.
Day 5 - Safari…This morning, you'll meet your driver/guide and board your 4x4 safari vehicle for the drive away from the coast to the private Taita Hills Sanctuary. Set in a dramatic, verdant landscape, the sanctuary is home to colourful birdlife and some large mammals, including lions and elephants. Enjoy an afternoon game drive through the sanctuary, and then continue to the 5* Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge. This imaginative collection of buildings is set on stilts above a series of waterholes – floodlit at night – to which the local animals come to quench their thirst. Settle into your well-equipped room, enjoy a candle-lit dinner in the dining room enjoying the panoramic views and the chance to watch for game from your lofty viewpoint.
Day 6 - After breakfast at your lodge in the sky, this morning, you'll re-board your safari vehicle for the short journey into the renowned Tsavo West National Park, a vast, protected area that features savannah grasslands, semi-desert scrubland, rocky ridges and extensive plains dotted with volcanic cones and low hills, and that supports an equally diverse variety of game and birdlife. Your destination is the sumptuous Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge and, after lunch here, you'll enjoy a game drive. Later, as you enjoy dinner in the traditionally thatched restaurant or a drink in the bar, watch the animals arrive at the lodge watering hole – always a stirring sight.
Day 7 - Experience the excitement of an early morning game drive and enjoy a bush breakfast – coffee and rolls in the wild – before you return to the lodge and bid farewell to Kilaguni to head towards the adjoining Tsavo East National Park. Enjoy a picnic lunch, and cross the highway and the railway line as you head into into the vast plain, upon which a variety of species can be spotted.
