Day 4 & 5 - Salt Lick Safari Lodge
It’s an early start this morning as you’re collected from the hotel in time to catch the 08:00 Madaraka Express from Mombasa to Voi. Travelling in First Class, you’ll have plenty of leg room and can enjoy the changing scenery as the train leaves the city and heads into the Kenyan countryside.
On arrival in Voi, around 1 hour 40 minutes later, you’ll be met at the station for your 4×4 transfer to Salt Lick Safari Lodge, on which you might just catch your first sighting of elephant or other wildlife. Perched high on stilts, overlooking the plains of the Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary, Salt Lick Safari lodge is one of Kenya’s most iconic properties.
After lunch, there will be time to visit the World War 1 Artefacts Museum, before you head out on you first game drive. Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary is home to over 50 species of large mammal, as well as more than 390 species of bird. Of the big cats, lion sightings are relatively common, but your ranger will also seek out leopard and cheetah. Out on the plains, and also back at the Salt Lick waterhole, there will be a great chance to see elephant, cape buffalo, eland, impala, zebra and kudu.
Your stay at Salt Lick includes four game drives in total, exploring different areas of the reserve. During your free time, do also take the chance to get up close and personal with visitors to the waterhole, via the lodge’s tunnel and sunken hide!
