This our 2 days Mombasa safari to Ngutuni Wildlife Sanctuary and Taita Hills Game Sanctuary is great package, if you want do go on a short safari from Mombasa but also engage in safari activities other than traditional game drives that are available in the national parks.

The two days safari from Mombasa takes you to 2 private wildlife (game) sanctuaries that border the two main national parks that are in the Southern Kenya safari circuit closest to Mombasa; Tsavo East National Park & Tsavo West. Ngutuni Wildlife Sanctuary borders the Tsavo east National Park, while the Taita Hills Game Sanctuary borders the Tsavo West National Park. Wildlife therefore roams freely between the parks and the game sanctuary because there are no fences between the sanctuaries and the national parks.

What to see on 2 days Mombasa Safari to Ngutuni & Taita Hills

Basically, the same animals in terms of predators and plain game that you can see in the parks, can be seen in these two sanctuaries. This is apart from the Rhinos whose movement is monitored and restricted in the Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary within the Tsavo West National Park. Both in Ngutuni & Taita Hills you expect to see plenty of elephants, zebras, hartebeests, Impalas, Gazelles, warthogs, lions, Cheetahs, oryx, lesser kudu, water bucks and many other animals, the list is endless. These two sanctuaries share borders with the Tsavo parks and therefore very rich in birdlife with more than 600 bird species already recorded in the area.

Day 2

This morning you will wake up early for the sunrise safari even before you take breakfast.

Predators too like big cats are more active in the morning before the sun is too hot. You will return for breakfast at the lodge then enjoy one more last game drive in the Taita Hills Sanctuary before you are taken to Taita Hills Lodge for your lunch. After lunch you will drive straight back to Mombasa where your 2 days safari ends. With our 2 days Mombasa safari in Ngutuni and Saltlick, you can be dropped back at your beach resort or hotel in Diani Beach if you are staying at the beach in Diani.
