Capital to Coast Kenya Safari by Rail

Experience the wonders of Nairobi National Park, Amboseli National Park and Tsavo East National Park all connected by the fabulous Nairobi-Mombasa railway line on this fabulous six-night itinerary.

This is a fantastic example of one of the many trips you can enjoy whilst exploring Africa, especially if you prefer to discover destinations by rail. The tour can be completely tailor-made to you, so you can change the accommodation and timings as you wish.

Nairobi National Park

Start your trip with a stay in the National Park on the doorstep of the airport. Rather than stay in the city, it is actually quicker to head straight into the National Park where you can start a safari experience within 20 minutes of your pick up at the airport. You will not believe that you can be in the wilderness so quickly and so close to one of Africa's largest cities.

The National Park is full of herbivores so a really good start to your trip.  Whilst there are big cats in the park as well, they are harder to track as they tend to steer clear of urban populations.

You will be treated to morning and afternoon/evening game drives moving deep into the park and will stay at a comfortable camp with luxury canvas tents actually inside the park, giving you an immediate safari start to your holiday

Overnight at Nairobi Tented Camp for two nights - Full Board

Amboseli National Park

After an early breakfast, head to the nearby Nairobi train station.  You will board the train and start your leisurely journey eastwards towards the coast. The tracks are elevated in areas abundant with wildlife, giving you a great view of the landscape and wildlife around you.

You will be met at Emali station and transferred to your luxury camp commencing your safari as you enter the park. Tortilis has magnificent views across to Kilimanjaro only interrupted by the vast herds of Elephant who gracefully transition the landscape.

You will be treated to game drives in the morning and evening

Overnight at Elewana Tortilis Camp for two nights - Full Board

Tsavo East National Park

After another early breakfast, head back to the train station to re-board the train and continue your journey to the East. On arrival in Voi Station, you will once again be met and taken to your last safari stop.  Starting your game drive almost immediately, you will soon experience the vastness of Tsavo East and meet your first reddish coloured elephants who love to cover themselves with the native dust.

You will once again have the opportunity to enjoy both morning and afternoon game drives.

Overnight at Satao Camp for two nights - Full Board

On your last morning of safari, its another early breakfast and onto the station for your final rail journey to Mombasa. In Mombasa you will be met and transported on for the next leg of your journey to Mombasa Airport or to your Kenya coast hotel.

We highly recommend six nights on the Mombasa coast at the end of this trip to help you unwind and enjoy more of the fabulous Kenyan hospitality.  We also have a range of activities we can arrange during your stay at the coast if you want more than just a beach stay so let us know if you are seeking culture, adventure or possibly both.
