Mombasa Safari Holidays
Tsavo East and West
These two huge game parks are the largest in Kenya, and within a half day drive from Mombasa. Most visitors of the coast region choose this park for their Mombasa safari. It's a 100 km to the main gate of Tsavo East, which will take roughly half a day, depending on weather and road conditions. The Tsavo parks are home to all the wildlife you would expect to see on an African safari: elephants, lions, antelope, rhinos, water buffalo, zebras and many more.
Shimba Hills National Reserve
The Shimba Hills reserve is the closest Mombasa safari park – 35 kilometers south of the city. It won't be the dusty dry safari you might expect. Shimba Hills is a rainforest park and filled with lush vegetation. The biggest attraction is the elephant and antelope populations, but if you're lucky you might see lions and giraffes as well. The rare Sable antelope is found only in Shimba Hills. Sheldricks' Falls is another sight you should see while visiting the park, and Giriama Point offers spectacular views of the ocean.
Amboseli National Park
Seen from Mombasa, Amboseli National Park is past the Tsavo East and Tsavo West parks on the Kenyan-Tanzanian border, and usually visited along with the larger parks. One of the greatest sights of this safari park is the view of Mount Kilimanjaro - Africa's largest mountain - from nearly any place in the park. Amboseli is especially elephant country, but many other big animals are present too, including the endangered black rhino, lions and antelopes. Unlike some other plains parks, there are some swampy areas at Amboseli which provide a home to flocks of native birds.
Mombasa Marine Park
Besides these nature and wildlife parks, Mombasa also has a number of marine reserves that deserve a visit after your dusty jeep rides. They aren't really "safaris" but still another way to see the native marine wildlife of Kenya. You could check out the Watamu Marine Park, the Mombasa Marine Park and the Diani Marine Reserve.
