The Ewart Grogan Tour
9 – 12 November
This safari is to the remote south western tip of Tsavo West. We enter the park from Mtito Andei, spend some time at the historic Rhodesia bridge and have a picnic lunch at Mzima Springs.
This area had plantations belonging to Ewart Grogan, one of the major British settlers and landowners in colonial Kenya. There will be a tour of Ziwani estate, which had belonged to Grogan and a 40 -minute talk on Grogan and his achievements.
We have negotiated an excellent price for the 3 nights at Ziwani tented camp. It is a beautiful camp built around a lake, with crocodiles and hippo in the water. From the grounds you get lovely views of Mawenzi peak of Kilimanjaro.
We shall drive past Grogan’s castle, visit Lake Jipe and the mysterious Lake Chala and have a morning walk around the lake at Ziwani camp.
Cost: 18,800 ksh pp sharing.
Single room supplement is 4,670 per day!
Included: FB at Ziwani and a small guide fee.
