You will return for breakfast and the rest of the morning at leisure to relax around the pool. After lunch visit Observation Hill on your afternoon game drive, which offers stunning photographic opportunities, and arrive back at the lodge in time for dinner.

Renowned for the intimacy of its elephant viewing and its magnificent prides of lions, the reserve offers 50 mammal and 300 bird species. It also promises uniquely privileged waterhole game viewing immediately adjacent to the Sarova Taita Hills Game Lodge, which is built to resemble a fort and boasts a fascinating First World War and Hollywood film history. Arrive in time for lunch and an afternoon game drive. Return for dinner and overnight at the lodge.
