This is classic safari destination and we offer a wide range of travel styles and lodges, whether you want to visit a variety of reserves or are just looking for a few days wildlife viewing as part of your holiday. Our team of safari specialists will help choose the right Kenya safari for you.

There’s also the chance to descend to an underground viewing chamber to see colourful fish close-up. Tonight you’ll stay at the Kilaguni Serena Lodge; one of Kenya’s first ever lodges, with a tranquil atmosphere and uninterrupted views of Kilimanjaro.

Day 3: Tsavo West National Park Day 3: Tsavo West National Park

Head out on three game drives in historic Tsavo West spotting its dust red elephants! Voyager Ziwani’s location allows for some other interesting sightseeing. Once the site for the German Schutztruppe garrison in the First World War, there are World War I and II battle sites nearby. Climb the Roaring Rocks for breathtaking views over the park and listen to the wind whistling up the escarpment, hike the volcanic Chaimu crater nature trail, and visit popular Mzima Springs – a series of pools fed by underground streams.

Day 4: Tsavo West - Amboseli National Park Day 4: Tsavo West - Amboseli National Park

Leave Tsavo and head to Amboseli National Park at the foot of snowcapped Mount Kilimanjaro. Located in the Rift Valley province of southern Kenya, close to the Tanzanian border, Amboseli has some of the most dramatic views of ‘Kili’ – more so even than in Tanzania. Sunrise and sunset are spectacular in many national parks, but here, over Mount Kilimanjaro, are some of the best. The park has a large concentration of wildlife, particularly in the dry season. There are over 1000 elephants, including some of the largest in Africa. As well as the huge herds, catch sight of buffalo and lions in the open savannah, rolling hills and swamplands. Other wildlife inhabiting the grasslands includes cheetah, rhino, waterbuck, zebra and warthog amongst others. Though largely dry and dusty, Amboseli is also home to swamplands, fed by underwater springs from the meltwaters of Mount Kilimanjaro. These lush green swamplands attract wallowing elephants and hippo, as well as buffalo and birdlife. More than 400 species of bird can be found, including the rare Taita falcon and the southern banded harrier eagle. You’ll arrive at Ol Tukai Lodge in time for lunch. Ol Tukai has one of the best spots inside Amboseli, backed by Mount Kilimanjaro. Monkeys and baboons roam the grounds and the rooms are chalet-style with wonderful views of the wetlands or Kilimanjaro. After refuelling and refreshing, enjoy an afternoon game drive in Amboseli, spotting some of its many elephants and perhaps catching sight of buffalo, lions and hippo in the open savannah and swamplands. Approx. journey time: 5½ hours.

Day 5: Amboseli National Park Day 5: Amboseli National Park

Today you’ll head out on early morning, mid-morning and afternoon game drives in Amboseli’s often arid plains. You will hopefully see buffalo and some of the big cats, with plenty of time to also enjoy the facilities at the lodge.

Day 6: Amboseli National Park – Nairobi Day 6: Amboseli National Park – Nairobi

Depart Amboseli after breakfast and return to Nairobi. Approx. journey time: 4 hours. In Nairobi you’ll have the option to enjoy the use of a day room until you transfer to the airport for your return flight.
