5 days safari from Mombasa – Where to visit?
As per the introduction above, the safari will take you to 3 national parks and one game sanctuary with one night at each place.
Tsavo East National Park
Tsavo East National Park is the home for the infamous man-eating lions that inspired the film called The Ghosts and the Darkness. The fill is based upon the book ‘The Man Eaters of Tsavo’ by Lieutenant Colonel John Henry Patterson, the man who killed the real lions which roamed and maimed workers who were building the famous Kenya – Ugandan railway that was later nicknamed ‘The Lunatic line’.
The park is still home to many lion prides that roam the vast plains of Tsavo. The park is also home to the famed red elephants; huge jumbos with red colored skin due to the red colored soils of that area. Many other animals; large and small game alike roam the vast park which is the largest single park in Kenya.
