What people are saying about Amboseli National Park

Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 30 reviews

The local agency in charge "Bongo" came to pick us up with precision at the hotel, present the manager who introduced us to our driver Isac, a person who is culturally prepared, helpful and sociable. Very clean and efficient 4x4 van. Beautiful and particular is the long transfer from Nairobi to Amboseli (about 5 hours including a couple of stops) during which you can appreciate the life of the people who live along this important road that crosses Kenya to Mombasa. The lodge in which we then stayed (AA Lodge) is very distinctive, with single accommodation in brick structures and typical thatched roof, swimming pool with spectacular views of Kilimanjaro, spacious dining room and decent food. Rooms equipped with mosquito nets (we also brought a very useful electric racket because anyway some mosquitoes enter). Exceptional safari, exceeding expectations, help available to our requests gave us something unforgettable.

The activity is well organized by the local agency Gracepat Safaris. We were accompanied by 2 drivers/guides (John and Timothy) for whom I only have words of thanks. Very punctual, professional and dedicated to their work, with extensive knowledge about the fauna and flora of the national parks. totally recommended

It was great to see so many animals up close and in the different ecosystems of the park. We even saw hundreds of flamingos, elephants and hyenas along the road, and Kilimanjaro in the background when the weather permitted. The AA Amboseli Logde was a very nice hotel and we highly recommend our guide (Black Santa)

Excellent tour, driver/guide Tony was really helpful. Amazing nature. Saw lots of animals. A bit long drive for a day, but definitely worth it.

My tour guide Benjamin was very friendly and had a lot of expertise. The visit to Massidorf was also very moving.
