Come on an adventure

Kipalo Hills


There are plenty of things to fall in love with in Kenya but one of the easiest is the tradition of the ‘sundowner’. Straddling the Equator, the sun goes down in Kenya at much the same time all year-round. But it does so spectacularly – typically in a blaze of gold tinged pink (but deep red in Tsavo thanks to the red soil) – that watching the sun go down has become something of a national pastime and a firm favorite with visitors. Planned to coincide with the end of the late afternoon game drive (if in the park), the sundowner setting may comprise of folding canvas safari chairs, drinks, a camp fire and of course a stunning view!

Our custom-built safari vehicles offer comfort, panoramic viewing, dedicated safari guides, refreshments on-board and radio-links for fast location of game. Easy access to Tsavo West and East National Parks allows for fantastic game viewing in Kenya’s largest and one of the oldest National Parks. The game drives are often timed to coincide with sundowners in the bush. A night game drive, permitted only on private reserves and conservancies, is a specialised activity, which typically takes place after dinner in a vehicle especially equipped with warm blankets, hot drinks, and a powerful hand-held lamp, which is used to sweep the bush for likely sightings. Night-time is the exclusive domain of hunters such as lions and leopards, and the only time when you may catch a glimpse of such elusive nocturnal creatures such as aardvarks, civet cats, white-tailed mongoose and cape hares. Fortunately, these can be arranged on the private conservancies that our properties are located in.
