Enjoy your 4 days stay in Kenya, with a visit to Amboseli National Park
Day 1 Nairobi
Overnight at your Nairobi hotel.
Day 2 Amboseli National Park (L,D)
Trip start at 7:30am in the morning at your hotel. Please be on time to meet your driver/guide at the front entrance of the hotel. A brief departure meeting will be held in the hotel reception area about general and specific aspects of the trip before setting off to Amboseli National Park.
Venture south to the famed Amboseli National Park located at the foot of Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. The snow-capped peak of the mountain dominates every aspect of the park, providing the ultimate photo backdrop. Amboseli covers only 392 sq km, although despite its small size and its fragile ecosystem the park supports a wide range of mammals (well over 50 of the larger species) and birds (over 400 species). After lunch at your safari camp, spend the afternoon criss-crossing the park in seach of lions, buffaloes, elephants, cheetah, and of course the photo of a lifetime.
Years ago this was the locale around which such famous writers as Ernest Hemingway and Robert Ruark spun their stories of big-game hunting in the wilds of Africa. In addition, the park that has been made famous by Cynthia Moss, the noted American naturalist and author who has one of the longest-running studies on elephants. You might even see some of the elephants that Cynthia has immortalised in her many books and award-winning film Echo of the Elephants.
Day 3 Amboseli National Park (B,L,D)
This is your full day to enjoy Africa at its best - countless wildlife encounters through open plains spotted with flat-topped acacia trees. Before returning to your safari camp in the evening, stop at a traditional “manyatta” (Maasai village) for an optional visit to learn about the local Maasai culture.
The park is surrounded by manyatta quickly built out of bent poles and sticks and plastered with cow dung and equally swiftly abandoned when the grazing is finished and the herds must move on.
Day 4 Amboseli National Park (B)
Early final morning game drive, enjoying the African sun as it rises over the savannah.
