Day 1
You will be met at Nairobi Airport and transferred to your hotel in this bustling city.
 
Check in and relax in your warm and friendly African surroundings.
Day 2
This morning transfer to Nairobi Railway Terminal in good time (arrive by 07.20) to board the Madaraka Express train (first class) departing at 08.20 to Tsavo National Park.
 
On arrival at 11.20 you will be met at Mtito Andei Station and transferred to Tsavo National Park.
 
On the way to your lodge enjoy game viewing in this great national park, which is divided into an eastern and western section by the railway line and national road and is one of the oldest and largest wildlife conservation areas in Kenya. As the park is unfenced, animals migrate freely across both sectors.
 
Check into your safari lodge and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the Kenyan bushveld.
 
Note: Train tickets can only be booked 30 days in advance and must be collected from the ticket machine or counter at the station, quoting the reference number we will give you. Luggage on the train is limited to 15 kg in soft bags, and cannot contain potentially flammable aerosols over 100 ml (eg deodorants, hairspray or sunscreen) or alcohol in open bottles (closed bottles of any size will be fine), as these will be confiscated.
Day 3
Today is devoted to game viewing with your lodge ranger in the western sector of Tsavo National Park.
 
At over 7,000 square miles (11,747 square km), this vast national park is the largest in Kenya and is named after the Tsavo River that flows through it. On a clear day you can enjoy wonderful views of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, which is usually surrounded by clouds.
 
Tsavo West is particularly scenic with its mountain landscapes, bushveld and volcanic lava from the Chyulu Hills. Wildlife is plentiful and diverse with particularly good elephant sightings, as large herds roam freely between Tsavo and Amboseli. Lion, buffalo, leopard and wild dog are present and plains game is plentiful - including giraffe, zebra, the small dik-dik, Grant's gazelle, kudu, waterbuck, bushbuck, eland, oryx, wildebeest, vervet monkey and baboon. Hippo and crocodile can be seen in the rivers and also keep an eye out for smaller animals such as the hyrax, mongoose, monitor lizard, chameleon and tortoise. There is also a great variety of birdlife including hornbill, guineafowl, francolin and ostrich.
Day 4
This morning transfer to Mtito Andei Station in good time to board the 11.24 Madaraka Express train (first class) to Mombasa.
 
On arrival at 14.18 you will be met at Mombasa Railway Terminal and transferred 2-hours along this beautiful coast to Watamu.
 
Check in and relax in your warm tropical surroundings on the shores of the sparkling Indian Ocean.
 
Note: Train tickets can only be booked 30 days in advance and must be collected from the ticket machine or counter at the station, quoting the reference number we will give you. Luggage on the train is limited to 15 kg in soft bags, and cannot contain potentially flammable aerosols over 100 ml (eg deodorants, hairspray or sunscreen) or alcohol in open bottles (closed bottles of any size will be fine), as these will be confiscated.
Days 5 To 7
At leisure to relax and enjoy the white sands of extensive Watamu Beach on the warm east coast of Kenya, fringed with swaying coconut palm trees and the vibrant blooms of hibiscus, bougainvillea and frangipani.
 
The blue ocean waters of Watamu Marine Park host a wide variety of coral gardens, inhabited by multi-coloured fish such as angelfish, butterflyfish, triggerfish and surgeonfish - most easily seen snorkelling, scuba diving or by glass-bottomed boat. Humpback whales migrate from the Antarctic to breed in these warm waters between July and September.
 
Activities vary by resort but usually include a variety of water sports, snorkelling, deep sea game fishing and scuba diving, with 20 prime dive locations less than 35-minutes from town. Sightings can include sea turtles, dolphins, mantas, sharks and some of the ocean's huge fish, as well as invertebrates and numerous brilliantly coloured tropical fish swimming amongst the coral reefs.
 
You can take optional tours to the ancient Gede Ruins and the historic Old Town in Malindi. Bird watching tours are also available.
 
Note: Dive packages vary by hotel, so enquire when booking. The best time for both diving and deep sea fishing is from November to February. Most boats do not operate during May and June (the end of the rainy season, when the sea is very rough).
Day 8
Transfer 2-hours to Mombasa Airport for your flight home.
