Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1 -Day 1 - Nairobi - Amboseli National Park

Upon arrival the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport ,you will be met by our representative and transferred to Amboseli National Park, famous for its big game and scenic beauty with the landscape dominated by Mt. Kilimanjaro. It offers an interesting contrast with its dry and dusty appearance, which can be attributed to the volcanic ash that came out of Mt Kilimanjaro when it last erupted. In spite of the appearance, there is a continuous supply of water that gets filtered through volcanic rocks from Kilimanjaro’s melted snow. These streams flow underground, creating lush green areas, and converge at two clear water springs in the park.

You arrive in time for lunch at the lodge followed by an afternoon game viewing drive until sunset.

Dinner and overnight at Amboseli Sopa Lodge on full board.
