Details of Two Day Safari to Amboseli National Park
While the Roof of Africa may be in Tanzania, it is from Kenya that you're able to get the best views of the beautiful mountain.
Amboseli National Park not only boasts these unparalleled views, but is also a beautiful savannah grassland home to large herds of elephants as well as lions, leopards, buffalo, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, and so much more.
DAY 1 - NAIROBI - AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK
Departing from Nairobi after breakfast, you'll drive south through the Masai lands of the Athi Plains and arrive at Amboseli National Park in time for either a picnic lunch within the park or a hot lunch at your lodge.
Once you've refueled, it's time to head out into the park for an afternoon game drive where you'll see herds of wildebeest and zebras, proud lions, skulking hyenas, a variety of antelopes, and some of Kenya's largest herds of elephants - all set against the startling backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro.
After the sun has set, you'll retire to your lodge for dinner.
DAY 2 - AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK - NAIROBI
For the absolute best views of Kilimanjaro, you'll have to wake up for the sunrise. The early morning sun casts Kilimanjaro in a fantastic light, turning its snows pink and its mountainside a deep purple that has to be seen to be believed. It makes a remarkable setting for your breakfast.
You'll also enjoy excellent game-viewing conditions on your early morning game drive, with predators such as lions and leopards much more active in these low-light, cooler conditions.
After your game drive has been completed, you'll return to Nairobi.
For those traveling on to Tanzania, the Namanga border crossing is just three hours drive from Amboseli National Park.
