Kenya south-east safaris, tours & holiday packages

Easy to get to from Nairobi

From Chyulu Hills and Amboseli to Tsavo, the wildlife-rich area offers a safari experience to remember

Kenya's south-eastern parks and reserves are well known and much visited because of how close they are to the Mombasa coast and the capital Nairobi. The main route between Nairobi and Mombasa dissects Tsavo East and West, making it very accessible.

Other south-eastern parks and reserves include Chyulu Hills and Amboseli, which is probably Kenya's best known national park. This is where elephant strolling past the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro has become an iconic image, captured by many a travel writer or coffee-table book photographer.

More on Kenya Southeast holidays

Predator and cat populations have stabilised in Amboseli and Chyulu Hills thanks to the conservation work of the Kenyan Wildlife Services and private parties with lodges at Chyulu. The influence of Great Plains Conservation and the Richard Bonham Masailand Preservation Trust has made Chyulu Hills one of the best safari experiences in the south-east, if not most of Kenya.

Combine this with the Masai Mara for the best safari experience in Kenya today. The south-east and west are free of conflict, a place where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of Kenya’s wilderness in a carefree way.
