Diani Beach is an approximately 25 kilometre long, gently sloping, white sandy beach surrounded by the warm Indian Ocean and located about 35 kilometres south of Mombasa. It is the tourist centre of the south coast of Kenya. Amboseli National Park and Tsavo National Park are ideally located to combine safari with beach holidays in Diani. Reefs off the beach both keep sharks away and break the waves of the sea and are popular diving spots.
The Amboseli National Park is located in the south of Kenya. It is known for its large herds of elephants and views of the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro across the Tanzanian border and often called the «Land of Giants» due to the impressive elephants here carrying massive tusks. Observation Hill offers panoramic views of the peak as well as the plains and swamps of the park. The park offers great wildlife viewing, and four of the Big Five are present. Rhinos are absent, but elephants reliably move to and from the marshy swamps in the centre of the park. Buffalo, wildebeest, plains zebra and gazelle are all very common. Lions are the easiest to spot of the big cats. The diverse wildlife also includes giraffes, cheetahs and hundreds of bird species. The western area is dominated by the huge Lake Amboseli, which dries up outside the rainy season.
Tsavo East and West National Park
Tsavo consists of two separate parks, Tsavo East National Park and Tsavo West National Park. Both are located in Kenya's Coast Province between Nairobi City and Mombasa. With an area of almost 22'000 km², Tsavo is the largest national park in Kenya and one of the largest in the world. The park was divided into two parts due to the railway line that runs from Mombasa to the interior of Kenya. The slightly larger Tsavo East is generally flat and consists of dry plains through which the Galana River flows. Other features include the Yatta Plateau and the Lugard Waterfalls. Tsavo West National Park is more mountainous and humid than its counterpart, with swamps, Lake Jipe and the Mzima Springs. It is known for its birdlife and large mammals such as black rhino, buffalo, elephant, leopard, hippo and lion. But smaller animals such as hartebeest, lesser kudu and giraffe can also be spotted in the park.
