Africa's highest mountain provides the backdrop to Amboseli, the snow-capped Uhuru Peak clearly visible above the flat savannah. Great elephant herds roam across this land, their distinct shapes providing a wonderful contrast on any photo of Mt Kilimanjaro. Amboseli also offers a small and compact safari experience, the bountiful wildlife easily found congregating around swamps and dried-out lake beds. Little compares to relaxing on a verandah and watching the jumbos roam beneath Mt Kilimanjaro.
We pick you up from your Nairobi hotel/residence or Nairobi airport at 07h00. Depart for the Amboseli National Park via the Nairobi/Mombasa road. The morning drive is via typical African savannah country dotted with local homesteads and colorful Maasai herdsmen grazing their cattle.
We arrive at Amboseli National Park in time for lunch. Take a midday rest and later venture into the park for the scheduled afternoon game-viewing drive. We will search for elephant, giraffe, zebra, lion, cheetah, warthog, ostrich and many others. Have a view of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro (weather permitting) which dominates the skyline and surrounding countryside. It is the highest in Africa and the tallest, free-standing mountain in the world.
We will overnight at Ol Tukai Lodge
