Kenya remains synonymous of Big Game Safaris and the main Kenyan National Parks are easy to reach from the coast. WaterLovers management can assist you in the organisation of an itinerary personalised to your needs, from tented camps to luxury lodges, and will gladly offer advice concerning the most professional operators.


From Diani, you have the possibility of going on 1 to 3-5 day safaris to the main National Parks, such as:

Shimba Hills Reserve

The national reserve of Shimba Hills is only 30 minutes from Diani and is at an altitude of 300-400 metres above sea level. It is set in a breathtaking panorama made of endlessly rolling hills of grasslands alternating with beautiful patches of equatorial rain forest.
You can see elephants, buffaloes, monkeys, leopards and different species of birds during your Game drives.
Shimba Hills allows you to enjoy the charm of a safari in close proximity to WaterLovers. The combination of rolling grasslands, ocean views and tropical rain forest makes the reserve a true delight for nature lovers.
For a unique experience, WaterLovers recommends spending a night or having lunch or dinner at Kutazama, an exclusive resort with only one room and an incredible view.

Tsavo

Approximately 2 hours from Diani is Tsavo National Park, the biggest Kenyan National Park and one of the largest wildlife sanctuaries in the world (about 20,000 square kilometres). The park is divided in Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks.

Tsavo Est National Park is dominated by endless plains and the Galana River. Across the river is the incredible 300 kilometre-long Yatta Plateau, one of the world's longest lava flows. The park contains large herds of elephants, prides of lions and is a sanctuary for the recently relocated almost extinct black rhino.

Tsavo West National Park is an unusually vivid green range of hills with the Mzima Springs bubbling to the surface forming a natural jacuzzi for hippos and crocodiles. The riverside forests are filled with delightful monkeys and birds.

Amboseli

The Amboseli National Park lies in full view of the most famous symbol of Africa (in Tanzania) - Mount Kilimanjaro - the highest mountain in Africa (5,895 m). The contrast of the flat surrounding area, covered by savannah and acacia scrubs, and the animals that are silhouetted against the great majestic giant, its snow-clad peak floating in the blue African sky, is absolutely stunning. Towards the centre of the park you can find a series of swamps, fed by the underground rivers running off the mountain, creating a popular sanctuary for wildlife. The most commonly seen animals include buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, gazelle, giraffe, lion and cheetah.

Maasai Mara

The Massai Mara National Reserve is located to the west of Nairobi, on Kenya's Tanzanian border. This 1,812 square km reserve is the northern natural extension of the Tanzanian Serengeti National Park. The Massai Mara offers wonderful scenery and an abundance of big game; a park of breathtaking views, panoramas of vast rolling plains, hills and woodland groves.
Mara's main attraction is the annual migration, which takes place every year between July and September. Over a million wildebeest and zebras trek from the southern plains of the Serengeti, following the rains in search of fresh grasslands.
