Day by Day Overview
We will pick you up from your Nairobi hotel, residence or Nairobi airport then head out in your private 4×4 Jeep on the Nairobi-Mombasa Highway. This is a relaxing drive through African savannah country, with local homesteads punctuating the vast plain. Watch for Maasai herdsmen, draped in their colorful wraps as they tend to their flocks. We should arrive in Amboseli National Park in the late morning. Enjoy the evening, our first of two in the park, at your choice of safari lodge or tented camp.
We like to rise early while on safari to set an adventurous tone for the day. On our first game drive of the day we’ll watch the light breaking upon the park and catch the wildlife as it appears on the savannah. Our next assignment: breakfast! And then another morning game drive through the park. One of the advantages of Amboseli is that the terrain is open with thin foliage which makes spotting game easier.
We’ll be looking for lion and leopard and the park’s almost ever-present great parade of elephants. Seeing the magnificent elephants patrolling in line before the majesty of Kilimanjaro is a special treat of this reserve. Lunch at your accommodation is next and perhaps some relaxing time; the pace is yours set as you want. If you want to fill your day with unlimited game drives, your guide is available to make that happen as well. We spend our second and final night in the park.
Our final day in the park and we want to squeeze in all the game viewing we can. We’ll start on a pre-breakfast safari and see what wildlife we can check off our list. Don’t forget to look for the smaller animals here like hyenas, foxes, jackals and monkeys. There’s also a colorful variety of rich bird life in the park – pelican, kingfisher, egret and heron are found near the park’s marshes and lakes. We’ll enjoy one more Amboseli breakfast, with views of great Kilimanjaro, and then a final game drive as we exit the reserve.
