Go Wild in Kenyan National Parks

Join your Mandarin-speaking guide to encounter untamed animals on game drives in world-class national parks & have plenty of fun in the sun at a beachfront resort on this thrilling Platinum DreamTrip.

About Your Trip

Embrace the magic of Kenya on this Platinum DreamTrip as you journey from Nairobi to Mombasa through landscapes of expansive grasslands, lava fields and natural springs with a Mandarin-speaking guide. Your adventure begins with a train ride from Nairobi to Amboseli National Park. Once there, you’ll enjoy an afternoon guided game drive followed by a sundowner cocktail in the bush. Continue to Tsavo West National Park and experience 3 more unforgettable guided game drives. You may encounter free-roaming wildlife on this vast nature reserve, including the “Big Five” — buffalos, elephants, leopard, lions and rhinos. During your stay at Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge, indulge in a bush-inspired breakfast atop Lion Rock, a volcanic formation overlooking picturesque plains.

Then, you’ll hop back on the train and head to Mombasa, where you can relax at your oceanside resort designed for fun in the sun. Stretch out on the beach or by the pool while soaking up the Kenyan rays, or take a complimentary lesson on kitesurfing, windsurfing or scuba diving. During your leisure time, you can get out to explore on your own — perhaps a hike along the nearby nature trails to explore the local landscape. Your stay in Mombasa also includes a visit to landmarks such as Fort Jesus and Mama Ngina Drive.

What we love:
• Amboseli National Park is renowned for being one of the best places in Africa to see free-ranging elephants with a herd of over 900 animals.
• Tsavo West National Park is home to the one of the largest rhinoceros sanctuaries in Africa, offering you the possibility of seeing a majestic black rhino in its natural habitat.
• The chances of seeing wild African animals are very good with 4 official game drives and 2 game-viewing opportunities while driving across national parks to your lodgings.
• Fort Jesus in Mombasa is a UNESCO World Heritage site built by the Portuguese in the 16th century.
• While in Mombasa, take advantage of a complimentary spa experience at Maisha Mind, Body & Spirit Spa, featuring massage and body-and-skin treatments using premium products.
• To maximize your enjoyment, download the DreamTrips™ app to access DreamTrips Local — then earn points on dining, entertainment, spa experiences & more at select spots recommended by DreamTrippers just like you!

Destination

Amboseli National Park, in Kenya’s Rift Valley, is an alluring combination of untouched grassland, intriguing indigenous people and a diverse ecosystem unlike any other in the world. In the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro, free-roaming elephants, giraffes, baboons and more than 600 bird species make the savanna their home.

Taveta is located approximately halfway between Nairobi and Mombasa, close to the Tanzanian border and within the Tsavo West National Park. Nearby Mt. Kilimanjaro, vast grassy plains and volcanic hills make this town an ideal starting point for adventurers of all kinds. Kayak on the tranquil waters of Lake Chala, a crater lake fed by the mountain’s melting snow. Or, hike on the nature trails at the Chyulu Hills surrounded by grassland and endless sky. For a change of scenery, visit the busy market in town.

Mombasa is a bustling seaside city known for its plentiful beaches along the Indian Ocean. Home to approximately 1 million people, it is the second-largest city in Kenya. As the largest port in East Africa, Mombasa’s multicultural population speaks more languages than Kenya’s 2 official languages, Swahili and English.
