Lions Bluff

Two Night - Tsavo East - Lumo Sanctuary

Ask anyone what colour an elephant should be and you may get a raised eyebrow (or two) but the answer will normally be grey or greyish. Red would almost certainly not be the answer. Yet in the Kenyan National Park of Tsavo East you will find red elephants aplenty.
The reason for their red colour is the dusty soil of Tsavo which the elephants regularly partake of dust baths. The dust serves as an important anaesthetic to protect the elephant's skin. It also has the added bonus of shining up their tusks in to an almost silver appearance.
On this very special Safari you will encounter these majestic animals as well as many lions, cheetahs, antelopes, giraffes to name but a few, along with a large variety of bird-life.

Kenya Safari Seasons

KENYA SAFARI SEASONS

The weather in Kenya is good for safaris at all times of year, though there is a greater chance of encountering rain from mid-April to the end of May and in November. Some people like to travel in these "rainy" months when dramatic cloud formations gather over the Mara plains, there is a sense of refreshment and grasslands are carpeted in new flowers.
Daily temperatures are influenced by altitude, so in the higher areas like Samburu you need a fleece for the cool early morning drives, but by 9am this is discarded as temperatures rise to the high 20s.
After a delicious lunch you take a siesta during the warm early afternoon with temperatures in the low 30s. Head out on safari around 4pm as it gets cooler and the animals start moving, remembering to take the fleece for when the sun has dipped below the horizon.
Weather is more a consideration at the coast, so don’t visit the Kenya coast from the first week of April to the first few days of June as the rains are heavier in coastal areas. At all other times of year the Kenya coast weather is warm, gently humid and breezy, at its very best from late November through to March.
