Visit the famous Mzima Springs; a resurgence of crystal clear waters, filtered by the volcanic Tsavo rocks, forming pools of water inhabited by hippos and crocodiles, then explore the Roaring Rocks site on foot and admire the panoramic views and the sun setting over the Chyulu Hills and Mount Kilimanjaro. Return back to the camp for dinner spend the night in a tent.

Day 2: TSAVO WEST

Depart after breakfast for an easy 3 hour long walk on the slopes of the Chyulu hills, a range of volcanic hills having been formed as a result of an eruption dating about 500 years ago.
