Day 1: Nairobi Kenya-Amboseli (250km-Approx.4hrs)

Your expert driver/guide from Randu Kenya Safaris will pick you up at 7:00 am from your Nairobi hotel, residence or airport for the drive along the Nairobi/Mombasa Highway. Along our route, we’ll enjoy the early morning African savanna with possible sightings of Maasai villagers herding their cattle.

Amboseli National Park is not a large park but is still considered the land of the giants. These giants are the immense herds of elephants that inhabit its plains. Amboseli is famous for being the best spot in Africa for viewing free-ranging elephants up close. Their numbers are so concentrated here you’re guaranteed sightings of the magnificent creatures.

Great herds roam its plains in the morning and evening. And you’re sure to see them during the day, foraging in the marshes. But you’re certain to have sightings of other wildlife as well. The park holds good-sized populations of lion, leopard, wildebeest, zebra, buffalo and gazelle.

Don’t be surprised to spot plenty of smaller mammals on your game drives – foxes, jackals, monkeys and yellow baboons!

Dinner and Overnight at the lodge or camp of your choice.

Day 2 : Amboseli-Tsavo East National Park

We’ll head out early for another game drive. This will be an ideal time to view Kilimanjaro. If the clouds cooperate, you’ll see the snowy peak of the tallest mountain in Africa.

While at Amboseli, if you choose, you can enjoy an optional visit to a nearby Masai Village, where you can meet these indigenous people and learn about their culture. There will be opportunities to purchase handcrafted jewelry as well.

Then we’re off to the second park of your holiday – Tsavo East. We’ll use this time well since our trip to Tsavo will also be a game drive!

Arriving at our second lodge we’ll freshen up and enjoy lunch. Then we’ll head out on the park’s grasslands to “catch” more wildlife. You may see black rhino, Cape buffalo, leopard and lion.

There’s a good chance you’ll be treated to the sight of Tsavo’s famous red-dust elephants, coated red by the dust baths they take in the brick red earth.
