Crowned by Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, the Amboseli National Parks is one of Kenya’s most popular parks. The name “Amboseli” comes from a Maasai word meaning “salty dust”, and it is one of the best places in Africa to view large herds of elephants up close. Nature lovers can explore five different habitats here ranging from the dried-up bed of Lake Amboseli, wetlands with sulphur springs, the savannah and woodlands. They can also visit the local Maasai community who live around the park and experience their authentic culture.
Drive past the scenic Athi Plains and into the bushy country of Amboseli National Park. Amboseli is a landscape dominated everywhere by the glistening, majestic snowcap of the mighty Mt Kilimanjaro – a fitting backdrop to the wild region. It is also the region where pastoral Masai and their cattle have lived in harmony with wild creatures for many a century. After lunch, an afternoon game drives to observe the picturesque Amboseli. Dinner and overnight at one of the Amboseli lodges located in the very heart of the Amboseli National Park.
Depart after breakfast to arrive in Nairobi in the early afternoon.
