Kenya Amboseli Safari

Amboseli National Park is the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants. Dominated by spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the Amboseli park spreads across the Kenya-Tanzania border. Its big skies and far horizons combine with swampy springs and dry and dusty earth trampled by hundreds of animals. Other attraction includes opportunities to meet the Maasai people who live around the park and experience their authentic culture.

This luxurious one-week tour features two of Kenya’s most popular safari destinations: Amboseli and Maasai Mara. It includes two nights in the Amboseli National Park and three nights in the Maasai Mara National Reserve with stays in some of the best luxury resorts on offer. The wildebeest migration reaches the Masai Mara in July and remains until October when they move back to the Serengeti in Tanzania. Best time to travel: late June to October (Dry season).

Day 01 – Arrive
Arrive Nairobi Begin in Nairobi, also known as “The World’s Wildlife Capital” is a bustling capital city, often used as a jumping-off point for safari trips. Spend your day visiting local arts and crafts galleries and museums or perhaps visit the city’s unlikely National Park, with wide open grass plains and a wide variety of wildlife including the endangered black rhino, lions, leopards and diverse birdlife.

Next to it is an irresistible elephant orphanage, the ground zero for the Rothschild’s giraffe, Karen Blixen's former home and more. Close to the National Park is the Bomas of Kenya where you can experience different aspects of Kenyan culture displayed there, including living styles, crafts, music and dancing. Don’t miss the most exciting traditional dances and acrobatic show.

When to go Game viewing is at its best in mid-summer after the rainy season has ended. The days will be long and the weather pleasant. The best month is probably July.

The main rainy seasons are from April to May (the long rains) and October to December (the short rains). Rainfall is seldom continuous over long periods and normally falls in the late afternoon preceded by bright sunny and fresh days. The Rift Valley and Central Highlands enjoy a temperate climate year round although the temperatures vary from the hot and relatively dry floor of the Rift valley to arctic on the peaks of Mt Kenya.
