Tour Overview

Amboseli is famous for the many elephant families in front of Mt. Kilimanjaro. You will time them coming out of their sleeping places as they pass big Umbrella Thorn Acacias in front of Kilimanjaro. In Lake Naivasha, the rich bird life – from raptors to water birds – as well as black and white colobus monkeys and hippos are a big attraction. During the migration, Masai Mara is one of the most interesting places to be. Carnivores and vultures have plenty to eat so you get the best chances to see hunting and eating scenes. Time is crucial for all observations and patience is needed while waiting for herds to cross the Mara River.
