You will be collected from your hotel in Diani Beach and drive to Shimoni, a small fishing village. On the way, pass by small villages, sugar cane plantations and fields of cassava. In Shimoni you will board a traditional Arabian Dhow to cruise to the Kisite Mpunguti Marine Park. Be sure to look out for dolphins as you head out to sea. Tea, coffee, mineral water, soft drinks, biscuits, mandazis and pizza bread will be served on the dhow. You'll go snorkeling at two different sites. There will be plenty of photo opportunities, so bring your camera. If you have an underwater one, even better. Lunch will be served on Wasini Island at a private cliff-top restaurant. Admire the views and enjoy a delicious meal of fish and crab, followed by citronella tea or fresh Kenyan coffee. After lunch, relax for a while and then head back to the mainland to take a bus back to your hotel.
You will be picked early in the morning and then drive to Tsavo East National Park, which is about 150km from Mombasa. Enter the park through Bachuma gate. Driving in the park you will have the chance to see lots of animals such as zebras, antelopes, lions, buffalos, leopards, giraffes and also a variety of different types of bird species. The park is most famous for the “Red Elephants of Tsavo”, which have a reddish body because of the dark sand that they apply on their bodies to protect them from insects. After your first game drive, you will check in at your accommodation and enjoy lunch. You will be staying at the Voi Safari Lodge, Zomeni Lion Hill or another similar premium-style hotel accommodation, based on availability. After lunch, head out on an afternoon game drive. In the evening, enjoy dinner back at your accommodation. On the second day, you will have an early break...

Quite a nice day out snorkeling, including a traditional lunch at a local restaurant in Wasini, followed by a visit of the village and of the mangrove garden. We would have liked to see the slave caves as well, but there was no more time for that on the way back. Friendy staff and a good experience overall.
This day tour was AMAZING!!! The beach was soooo beautiful, also, snorkeling(or you can do free diving) was such a incredible experience. It totally deserves spending 100USD for this tour.
thank you harry from orange safari everything was perfect. the guide was amazing found all the animals i was intrested in seeing. the lodge we went for lunch had an amazing view of park.
Great snorkeling, too short perhaps. At the end, a little too much on asking for tips, feel a bit pushy.
The trip is interesting but be prepared for some time spent in a bus and on a boat.
