DAY TRIP TOUR TO AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK

Amboseli National Park is a stunning wildlife reserve located in Kenya, known for its iconic views of Mount Kilimanjaro, which lies just across the border in Tanzania. Amboseli is world-famous for its substantial population of African Elephants which can be seen in herds of over 100 individuals. In particular the large bull elephants have some of the largest tusks in the animal kingdom. Also to be spotted are ample herds of buffalo, wildebeest, zebra and impala, as well as giraffes and warthog. With all this variety you can be sure a healthy population of predators also call Amboseli home. Lions, leopards, caracals, cheetahs, jackals, hyenas and serval cats are all frequently seen in the park.

1. Early Morning Departure: Start your day early to maximize your time in the park. Amboseli is about a 4 to 5-hour drive from Nairobi, so consider leaving the city at around 5 or 6 AM.

2. Breakfast En Route: Take a packed breakfast or stop at one of the nearby towns on the way to Amboseli for a quick breakfast.

3. Arrive at Amboseli National Park: Reach the park entrance around 9 or 10 AM. Pay the entrance fee and proceed inside.

4. Morning Game Drive: Embark on a morning game drive in Amboseli. The park is known for its vast savannas, swamps, and diverse wildlife. Keep an eye out for elephants, lions, cheetahs, giraffes, zebras, and numerous bird species. The backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro makes this experience truly unique.

5. Lunchtime: There are picnic sites within the park where you can enjoy a packed lunch. Alternatively, some lodges and camps inside Amboseli offer lunch options if you prefer a more comfortable setting.

6. Afternoon Game Drive: Continue your game drive after lunch. The afternoon can be an excellent time to spot animals, as they are more active during the cooler hours.

7. Cultural Interaction (Optional): We offer optional cultural visits to local Maasai villages. This can be a fascinating way to learn about the Maasai people’s traditional lifestyle and customs.

8. Departure: As the day draws to a close, start making your way back to Nairobi. The drive back will take a few hours, and you can expect to be back in the city by late evening.
