Amboseli Day Trip
This Amboseli trip takes you to Amboseli for a single day and starts from Nairobi where pickup can be arranged from your hotel or place of residence.
We start early before sunrise around 4:30am as Amboseli is 260km(160 miles) from Nairobi and it takes around 2 - 3 hours to get to amboseli national park.
One of the main attractions of an Amboseli safari are its elephants. Know as elephant country you will be encountering these gentle giants in large herds.
It is also one of the best places to view mount Kilimanjaro. It is however not guaranteed that you will see mount Kilimanjaro as it is sometimes not visible depending on the cloud cover of the particular day.
Pick up from Your hotel in Nairobi or place of residence and drive to Amboseli National Park.
First Game Drive
As we arrive at Amboseli National Park we head off to Ol Tukai lodge and on the way there you will have your first game drive.
We arrive at Ol Tukai lodge for breakfast and for an opportunity to freshen up.
Second Game Drive
After breakfast you head off for a mid morning game drive. Its true that Amboseli is flat and its the easiest park to trace animals in Kenya. You head off to the two swamps in Amboseli which also happen to be the best spots to see wildlife.
This is your chance to see elephants, giraffes, lions, hippos, water buffaloes, hyenas, wildebeest, waterbucks, Warthogs and baboons.
Amboseli is also known for its bird species with more than 420 species having been recorded here. The swamps are great for water-associated birds such as egrets, herons, pelicans and crowned cranes.
Amboseli is a bird-watcher’s paradise throughout the year. Residents include unusual species that are spotted at any time. The migratory bird population fills the park from November to April. The months when rainfall is most likely to disrupt your bird-watching plans are November and April.
For even more wildlife viewing, we’ll take a ride up to Observation Hill. This vantage point will give us an overall vista of the entire park. Check out the swamps below where the elephants gather daily. You can also walk about the hill as it’s one of the few places in the park you can explore on foot.
Optional Maasai Village Visit
You can choose to add a visit to a Maasai village as they are an indigenous people who live within the park’s borders. If you’d like you can take an optional visit with the Maasai to meet them and learn about their culture and lifestyle.
