Itinerary

Day 1Nairobi to Amboseli National Park

After a stopover lunch at the lodge we enjoy an afternoon game drive returning to the lodge in the evening for a sun downer and dinner. With the majestic backdrop of Mt.

Days 2Amboseli National Park

After a dawn game drive, we return to the lodge for breakfast. The rest of the morning is spent at leisure or by the swimming pool. Lunch and final game drive in the late afternoon beneath the snowcapped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

At 329 sq km Amboseli National Park is a small park and lacks the profusion of animal species found in the Maasai Mara, but the landscape provides limited cover so we have better chances of seeing some of the larger predators. There is also a small seasonal lake that comes to life after rains with the vibrant shade of pink from flamingoes!

You also have the option of visiting a Maasai village to get an understanding of the Maasai way of life and customs.
Dinner and overnight back at the lodge.

After an early breakfast, we drive towards the Great Rift Valley making a brief stop at the escarpment to enjoy views of Mount Suswa and Longonot in the far distance. We arrive Lake Naivasha in the late afternoon; enjoy an optional 1-hour boat ride on the lake in search of Hippos, Pelicans and other bird species. Thereafter, enjoy a cool drink at the bar by the lake side before checking into your accommodation for overnight.
