Amboseli National Park

After an early breakfast, you will be driven to Wilson Airport, where you will board a flight to Amboseli National Park. Amboseli National Park is one of the best-known wildlife destinations in Kenya, primarily for excellent sightings of elephants in the big marshy area and the magnificent view of Mount Kilimanjaro (Observation Hill offers the best vistas).

Made famous by conservationist Joy Adamson and the film based on her book “Born Free”, Meru National Park features 13 rivers and supports a wide range of diverse habitats. A paradise for bird watchers, there are several rare bird species found here. In the unspoilt and rugged landscape of Meru, enjoy game drives, safari walks or a cultural visit to the local community. Or why not try your hand at fishing in one of the many rivers. Spend two nights at Meru National Park.

In the hot and arid lowlands of the Northern districts of Kenya, featuring doum palms and over 450 species of birds, there are interesting experiences to keep you fascinated over the next day or two. Visit a Samburu community and learn about their way of life and culture. Take a camel safari, or even spend the night under the stars in a fly camp. Or enjoy your camp, overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River, where the world melts away.

Many parts of the country are at an altitude of 2000m. These highlands, e.g. Laikipia, Mathews Range and the Masai Mara experience a cool and temperate climate. Lower regions at an altitude if 1200m, such as the semi-desert areas of Samburu/Shaba, Meru and the coastal strip, can reach a dry and comfortable 35° C during the day.
