ITINERARY

Nairobi

Jambo and welcome to Nairobi, Kenya!

Nairobi is a hub for dynamic and innovative artists, journalists, entrepreneurs and business people, and the city is constantly changing. This City leaves the traveler with a true taste of one of Africa’s most vibrant cities.

Upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you’ll be met by your Ground Operator and transferred to the Tamarind Tree Hotel.

After checking in, you will have the opportunity to visit Kazuri Beads Women Factory. Following lunch will be at Karen Blixen Coffee Garden. Thereafter visit the wonderful Giraffe Center.

After a wonderful breakfast at the Tamarind Tree Lodge, you'll head to Amboseli National Park, lying below the most famous symbols of Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. Home to the legendary Maasai tribesmen and famous for huge herds of Elephant, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak in Africa.

In addition to Elephant, Antelope, Zebra, Wildebeest, Buffalo and the elusive Leopard, nearly every vista within the Park is framed by majestic Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance.

DAY 3, June 03, 2019 | Amboseli National Park
Amboseli National Park

Wake early for the best morning view you've ever experienced on a majestic game drive through the Amboseli National Park. Experience Amboseli, meaning “salty dust” in Masai, like few ever have. Despite Amboseli’s sometimes dry and dusty appearance, it has an endless supply of water filtered through thousands of feet of volcanic rock from Mt. Kilimanjaro’s snow melt. These underground streams converge into clear fresh water springs in the heart of the park. The powder like dust is volcanic ash, which was thrown from Kilimanjaro millennia ago.

The main attraction of Amboseli is its vast herds of elephant within the park. The bull elephants here have some of the largest tusks in Kenya.

Early morning and late afternoon photographic opportunities are incredible, with plentiful game to watch and Mt. Kilimanjaro providing an impressive and majestic backdrop to the entire experience.

While you enjoy a day of breath-taking game drives, you'll also have the opportunity to visit a Local School and Masai Village.

After a day you'll never forget at Amboseli National Park, you'll stay close-by at Amboseli Serena Lodge.

The set of thousands of television and Hollywood shows and the annual migration site of over one million wildebeest, the park is also renowned for its symbolic African wildlife, including lions, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes and plains game.
