Amboseli!

Amboseli!

The Elephant’s world!

It is a fabulous safari allowing you to get closer with incredible pristine wilderness. You visit the stunning Maasai Mara, stay in Lake Nakuru in The Great Rift Valley before concluding your safari in Amboseli. You have the option to extend or change this safari to your own liking. This is a classic journey through Kenya including the core places. With lots of camping, eating around the campfire under clear star-filled African skies, this is a trip of a life time.  

Sample itinerary: Nairobi/ Maasai Mara/ Lake Nakuru/ Amboseli/ Nairobi – 7 days.

Day 1: Nairobi

Day 2: Nairobi – Maasai Mara

Leaving Nairobi early in the morning after breakfast, we will travel towards Kenya’s highlands and head down the Rift Escarpment. En-route you will enjoy stunning views of The Great Rift Valley. We will have lunch on the way and then a couple of hours late we will reach Maasai Mara – you will embark on an afternoon game drive returning to the camp site as the sun sets. The game viewing will follow with dinner in your camp/lodge.

Day 3: Maasai Mara

After an early morning breakfast, you’ll leave the camp on a game drive to the banks of the Mara River. Here you’ll be met by a Ranger who will escort you on foot along the riverbank to a population of wallowing hippo. The Mara River is a major obstacle to the animals on the Migration and the favourite spot for all animal wildlife photographers when the great migration occurs.

When the river becomes swollen you will be lucky to see some of the biggest crocodiles in Africa. This day could be your most thrilling day with the opportunity to spot the Big Fives on the vast savannah and the wildlife roaming around you – you will be in the heart of this wildlife – rich reserve. The reserve also offers fantastic opportunities for viewing big cats – breath-taking views of lioness with cubes will be something for you to remember and treasure. Today you will have one of your most memorable lunches – we will have a picnic on Kenyan and Tanzanian border where Maasai Mara stretches into Serengeti.
