Spread over 110 square kilometres, the privately owned Taita Hills sanctuary is a stunning vista of rolling plains, punctuated with trees with mountains in the foreground. The conservation area teems with wildlife, hosting the animals that no doubt brought you to Africa on safari in the first place.
Your stay in Taita Hills is perfectly complemented by the luxury safari accommodation on offer at Sarova Saltlick Game Lodge, one of the world’s most photographed lodges. The wonderfully designed lodge allows the park’s primary residents to come up close to you and causes as little obstruction as possible to their routine.
Safari at Taita Hills offers you both a luxury environment, surrounded by all the comforts of a five-star hotel, whilst being almost within touching distance of the fauna you’ve travelled so far to behold. Your luxury safari also includes a dedicated guide and a 4×4 safari vehicle that only you and your party will use.
Since your luxury safari is bespoke for you, it’s possible for you arrange extra days for additional costs. The time you spend at Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge can be customised to your needs, with fewer game drives and more time in your luxury environs perfectly possible too.
