Nestled in the southern reaches of Kenya, Amboseli National Park is famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to massive herds of elephants. The majestic snow cap of Mt. Kilimanjaro will tower above as you traverse acacia woodland, grassy plains, and massive swamps fed from the watershed from Mt. Kilimanjaro. Amboseli is also renowned for its excellent variety of wildlife such as the Masai giraffe, elephant, lion, and a spectacular array of birds.

Lake Nakuru

In the heart of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland, Lake Nakuru serves as home to a diverse assembly of wildlife. The area is most known for its immense quantities of flamingos and other species of African birds, though the oasis of the lake attracts an array of other species. Lake Nakuru will become your oasis too, as you take in spectacular views of the lake and wildlife on game drives and from your luxury accommodations.

Southern Masai Mara

Depart from Nairobi

Enjoy one last breakfast accompanied by the African sunrise, followed by a game drive through the Mara.
