2 Days/ 1 Night Amboseli Safari

Find vast herds of elephants at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro on a 2-day safari from Nairobi to Amboseli National Park, with daily game drives timed to spot wildlife when they’re most active. Since included accommodations options range from tents to a high-end safari lodge, the safari can be as rustic—or luxurious—as you want, and a range of pickup options tailor the safari to your travel plans.
What to Expect

Day 1: Nairobi – Amboseli National Park (L, D)

You will be picked up from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport or your hotel in Nairobi. Then you will depart for Amboseli National Park (230 km) arriving in time for check-in and lunch at 13:00. Freshen up in your room or soak in the fabulously constructed swimming pool overlooking the snow capped Mt. Kilimanjaro. You will have an introductory late afternoon game drive at app 15:30 in the park with a perfect view of Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro. Against this magnificent backdrop roam vast herds of elephant accompanied by a kaleidoscope of other fabulous beasts like lion, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, gazelle, hippo, and wildebeest to name but a few. This is one the most soul-searing views in Africa. Dinner and overnight will be at the camp / lodge.

Accommodation based on tour option chosen at time of booking.

Day 2: Amboseli National Park – Nairobi / Namanga (B)

An early morning game drive (app at 06:30 am) allows you to become better acquainted with Amboseli and its wildlife. Wherever you travel within the park you will remain under the watchful gaze of the imposing Mount Kilimanjaro. The vast herds of elephants for which Amboseli is known, seem dwarfed by comparison. We exit Amboseli National Park and proceed to the lodge for breakfast and check-out (till 10:00 am).  You will have 2 hrs for optional activities such as a visit of maasai community.  Note gratuities are given to the Maasai when you visit their village. Between 10am and 12pm we say good-bye to Amboseli and proceed to the place you need. You can be dropped off either
– at your hotel in Nairobi
– at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport
– at Namanga border control (extra cost 60 USD p/p) for the shuttle bus to Tanzania
