DAY 1 OF AMBOSELI SAFARI: NAIROBI/AMBOSELI
After breakfast we will pick you from your Nairobi hotel or the airport. Thereafter depart for Amboseli national park, a jewel tucked right under the skirts of Kilimanjaro, arriving in time for lunch. The park is one of Kenya’s smallest with an area of only 392 square kilometers and hosts a fragile wetland eco-system that is fed by streams from the snow peaked Kilimanjaro just across the border in Tanzania. The park is based on a ancient dried lake bed which produces spectacular spiral ‘devil winds – as the local Masai call them’ swirling dust and sand high in the sky as a sign of oncoming rains from God’s mountain. After lunch you will have an afternoon game drive before dinner and overnight at you Amboseli AA Tented Lodge.
