Day 3: Nairobi to Amboseli

This morning depart on your safari adventure. Drive to Amboseli National Park nestled at the foothills of Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. Amboseli is a top destination in Kenya for wildlife. Indeed, one of the classic images of East Africa is that of a herd of elephant strolling across the plains with the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro in the background. It is to catch this sight that people flood to Amboseli National Park. While Kilimanjaro is actually across the border in Tanzania, Amboseli has a perfect view of the world’s tallest free-standing mountain, rising an impressive 5895 metres above the plains.
Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch Dinner
Approximate driving time: 5 hours

Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5: Amboseli to Tsavo West

The best time to view the majestic mountain is at dawn, when the clouds lift and the light is clear and soft.  Wake in the early morning to witness the African sunrise lighten the majestic mountain, distributing its golden rays to the dry savannah of Amboseli National Park. It’s a very good photo opportunity.  After breakfast depart for Tsavo West National Park and enjoy an afternoon game drive through the lava formations.
Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Approximate driving time: 4 hours

Day 6: Tsavo West to Lumo Sanctuary

Tsavo West and Lumo are adjacent to one another so it will be like a full day of game driving as we transfer from one park to the next.  Red elephants are a feature of this area... but it's only because they bathe in red dust!
