Description

The trek will start early at 5:00 a.m. on the Nairobi-Mombasa Highway, offering you the opportunity to witness a luminous Kenya sunrise and the picturesque African savannah. During the journey, you will pass homesteads and encounter Maasai herdsmen with their cattle, adding to the cultural immersion. After approximately 3-4 hours, you will arrive at Amboseli National Park and begin your first game drive. With the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro as the backdrop (weather permitting), you will have the chance to spot herds of protected elephants, many of which have immense ivory tusks. To enhance your wildlife viewing experience, a ride up to Observation Hill will provide a panoramic vista of the entire park. From this vantage point, you can observe the swamps where elephants gather daily. Additionally, Observation Hill is one of the few areas in the park that you can explore on foot. - Amboseli National Park boasts abundant birdlife, particularly around the swamp and marshlands. You can expect to see raptors, water birds such as pelicans, pink flamingoes, crakes, kingfishers, and more. Another unique aspect of the park is the presence of the indigenous Maasai people, who live within its borders. If time permits, you may have the option to visit the Maasai and learn about their culture and lifestyle. After the morning activities, you will settle in at Amboseli Serena Lodge for lunch. It is one of the finest restaurants in the park, where you can enjoy a sumptuous meal. Following lunch, there will be a short game drive to further explore the park. While it will be a shorter tour, you may still have the opportunity to spot elephants roaming from the marshes, as they tend to do later in the day. Afterward, you will head back to the highway and return to Nairobi, with an estimated arrival time in the evening. This full-day safari adventure offers a glimpse into the beauty of Amboseli National Park, its magnificent wildlife, and a chance to experience the safari life in Africa. It's important to note that the timings and wildlife sightings may vary depending on various factors, including weather conditions and animal behavior.
