Full description
You will be picked up from your Nairobi Hotel or the Airport around 5:00 AM before departing for the Amboseli National Park via the Nairobi-Mombasa Highway. Take the chance to enjoy the African sunrise as you head towards Amboseli. The morning drive is via African savanna country, which is dotted with local homesteads and colorful Masai herdsmen grazing their cattle. There will be a brief breakfast stop on the way. On arrival at the Amboseli, proceed for a game viewing drive in search of Elephants, Giraffes, Zebras, Lions, Cheetahs, Warthogs, Ostriches, and more. Mount Kilimanjaro dominates the skyline and surrounding country. Take in spectacular views of the mountain and make sure that you get some great photographs. It's the tallest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. While Mount Kilimanjaro remains in the background, marvel at the wildlife and scenery that can be found in the park. Enjoy a buffet lunch at Oltukai Lodge. Enjoy a short early afternoon game viewing as you exit the park. Depart for Nairobi, where you will arrive in the early evening and get dropped off at your Nairobi hotel, Nairobi Airport or residence.

The tour was very nice and there were many gigantic impressions. If someone doesn't have that much time, then the long way from Nairobi is worth the trip. However, at least one night would make sense. The driver was very competent and could explain everything very well in German. What was very annoying, however, was that the driver was constantly drinking and we had to stop dozens of times. This unnecessarily lengthened the already long journey. We often had to stop in the park because of it.

Our safari day at Amboseli Park went very well. Our guide Castro quickly got us from Nairobi to Amboseli in around 3.30 hours. He was very precise in his explanations and in answering our questions. We did not have the chance to see Mount Kilimanjaro due to bad weather conditions. But the spectacle of the animals was just as beautiful. We saw giraffes, elephants, hippos, wildebeest, vultures, hyenas, flamingos and antelopes. We had the chance to see a family of 9 lions including the alpha male and 2 baby lions. For lunch, we stopped at Lodge Ol Tukaï and ate a very good buffet meal before heading back on the road for a short game drive towards the exit of the park. Everything was perfect

The trip to Amboseli was wonderful and the guide and driver Nathan from the local Safari Partner was great and knowledgeable. The game drive lasted three hours and I saw elephants (also up close), wildebeest, giraffes, zebras, lions, ostriches, flamingos, cape buffalo, fish eagles, impalas, baboons and a large hippo. All with the beautiful background of Mount Kilimanjaro. The trip started at 6 am when I was picked from the hotel in Westlands, and we started the game drive at 9am. The lunch was great at the Ol Tukai Lodge in Amboseli, with great scenery. The trip back started at 13:30 and arrived at 6pm in Nairobi, also due to ongoing construction works on the roads. Considering the low turnover of tourists due to the current situation, the safaris were not crowded and enjoyeable. Also the director of the local partner was very helpful sending useful information in a timely manner. GetYourGuide was great as always! I strongly recommend this safari in 2021.
