About Amboseli National Park

Towered over by the magnificent bulk of Mount Kilimanjaro (5,896 m), Africa’s highest mountain, Amboseli is one of Kenya’s oldest, famous and most-visited parks. Endlessly panoramic, yet comparatively compact, it is dotted with emerald green swamps in which great herds of elephant wallow; half submerged in the papyrus grasses. The permanent marshlands also provide a potent draw to hippos and buffaloes, while offering a haven for the abundant water birds. An International Biosphere Reserve, the park largely constitutes the usually dried-out lakebed of Lake Amboseli, which is surrounded by flat grasslands relieved by very few trees. On the plains are numerous antelopes, spotted hyenas, jackals, warthogs, olive baboons and vervet monkeys. Lions are rare. Observation Hill, a conical peak, which is easily climbed, offers stunning views of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Distance/drive time: 260km / 4 ½ hours

Day 3:                     On Safari in Amboseli

After breakfast, enjoy the day exploring the Amboseli National Park. Spend the entire day game-driving in the park, which is an International Biosphere Reserve featuring the dried-out lakebed of prehistoric Lake Amboseli, rolling savannah and lush green swamps. The plains offer numerous antelopes, spotted hyenas, jackals, warthogs, olive baboons, vervet monkeys and the chance of spotting a lion, leopard or cheetah.

Observation Hill, a conical peak, which is easily climbed, offers stunning views of Mount Kilimanjaro. Lunch and dinner will be taken at the lodge, whose grounds also offer the opportunity of optional nature walk with bird-spotting (150 species in the grounds alone). Breakfast, lunch and dinner at the camp

Day 4:                     Tsavo East

After breakfast, depart Amboseli and drive to Tsavo East National Park and check-in to Ashnil Aruba Lodge. The lodge takes its name from the Aruba Dam (constructed on the Voi River in 1952), an oasis of limpid brown water that forms an irresistible attraction to both man and beast in this otherwise dry dusty Tsavo. After lunch, enjoy an afternoon game drive then return to the lodge for perhaps an evening sundowner (at extra cost). Dinner and overnight at Ashnil Aruba Lodge - LDBB

Day 5:                     On safari in Tsavo East

Spend all day on safari in the Tsavo East National park. With a full day in the park, both morning and afternoon game drives are offered. Tsavo offers some of the most magnificent game viewing in the world – vast herds of dust-red elephant, fat pods of hippo, giant crocodile, teeming herds of plains game, a fantasia of bird life and some magical flora.

About Tsavo East National Park

The joint mass of Tsavo East and West National Parks forms one of the largest national parks in the world and covers a massive 4% of Kenya's total land area. Tsavo East, the larger of the two, lies equidistant between Nairobi and Mombasa and is one of the last great wilderness safari landscapes on Earth. A dramatically presented theatre of the wild, this safari destination offers a vast arena of parched scrub and heat-shimmering bush which is washed by the azure waters and emerald-fringed meanderings of the Galana River, guarded by the limitless lava reaches of the Yatta Plateau and patrolled by some of the largest safari elephant herds in the world.

For those who love birding, Tsavo East's prolific bird life features 500 recorded species. Commonly seen birds are African skimmer, goshawk, red and yellow bishop, palm nut vulture and the white-headed buffalo weaver. Around Aruba Dam there is also a profusion of woodpecker, sunbird, starling and pigeon whilst along the Galana River both Maasai and Somali ostrich abound along with kori bustard, bateleur, carmine bee-eater and an East African speciality, the vulturine guinea fowl. Breakfast, lunch and dinner at the camp

Day 6:                     Mombasa Diani

Breakfast and drive to Mombasa, then cross the ferry into South Coast where the sun, sand and sea awaits.
