3 Days Tsavo East and Taita Saltlick safari.

3 Days Tsavo East and Taita Saltlick safari.

Get ready for the wild side of Kenya with this 3 Days Tsavo East and Taita Saltlick safari. Imagine this; red dust swirling, the hot African sun beating down, and you’re in the heart of it all. Tsavo East, a wild kingdom of elephants, lions, and more, stretches out before you. And nestled in the Taita Hills? The legendary Saltlick Lodge, where you’ll watch zebras and giraffes drink right from your balcony.

This ain’t your average zoo trip. Over three days, you’ll be out in the bush, rumbling along in a safari jeep with the wind in your hair. Each game drive is an adventure – maybe you spot a cheetah stalking its prey, or a whole herd of elephants taking a mud bath. The animal encounters are unpredictable, that’s the thrill of it.

It’s not just about ticking off the Big Five though. You’ll soak up the magic of Kenya. The vast landscapes, the sunsets that set the sky ablaze, the nights under a million stars. it’ll get under your skin.  And at Saltlick Lodge,  you might even hear the rumble of elephants drinking below you as you drift off to sleep.

Sound like your kinda jam? If you’re up for a heart-pumping, eye-opening, soul-stirring adventure, this safari was made for you.
