Discover luxury and boutique hotels in Tsavo
When to go
The dry season, from late June to October, is your best bet for successful safaris.
PlanesFly into Nairobi’s international hub Jomo Kenyatta, transfer to nearby Wilson Airport, then either hit the road (with your own set of wheels or a hotel transfer) or catch a Safarilink flight or private charter to Tsavo. Hotels can help with arranging air transfers.
TrainsThe Madaraka Express train runs between Nairobi and Mombasa to Mtito Andei, on the western edge of the park.
AutomobilesIt’s around a four-hour drive from Nairobi and little less from Mombasa. Local road-users aren’t always sticklers for safety, so we’d say stick to hotel transfers. If you do fancy tackling the drive yourself, you’ll want a four-wheel drive.
