Adventure Safari

Trekking- Some lodges and camps in both Parks organize game walks and hikes. The wide open plains of Tsavo are ideal for game viewing on foot. Expert guides lead these walks, giving guests a fascinating insight into the Tsavo region, and a personal introduction to the local wildlife.

A privately escorted foot safari is the best way to really experience the African bush at its best. Walking through the wilds let you explore the wild at its most pure and visceral. as you track big game, you become aware of every sight and sound, the smell of the earth and the touch of the wind. An expert tracker will teach you the signs to look for, tracks- the individual tracks and spoor, and show you how to use the wind to disguise your scent, and to move silently through thick cover and get up close and personal with the game.

When you are at close range your senses are heightened, and you become increasingly aware of the animal you are watching, how it moves and feeds, how it reacts to its environment. If the animal reacts to your presence, it can be a real adrenaline rush.

There are few experiences as exhilarating as a close encounter with an elephant, lion or buffalo. This is an experience that will make you feel more alive.

You will, of course, want to stay alive so make sure that any foot safari is undertaken by a fully trained and responsible guide.

At Mzima Springs, two nature trails have been established, which are especially good for birders.

White Water Rafting One of the wildest ways to explore Tsavo is by raft, on the waters of the Athi River. Three day rafting expeditions set out from the town of Kibwezi (a three hour drive from Nairobi). The river winds its way through Tsavo, and the 82 km rafting trip is the perfect combination of game viewing and white water adventure.

The river is rich in birdlife, and rafters will encounter plenty of crocodiles and hippo along the way. Scenic drifts along clear stretches of water are interspersed with excellent white water action, through Class II-IV rapids of up to 6km in length. Nights are spent camped out on sandbanks, sleeping under the stars by the warmth of a campfire.

For those looking for a real adventure, this is one of Tsavo's best safaris.

High water season is May and December.
