Karibu Kenya! Welcome to Kenya! Arriving at the airport, you will be picked up and stay overnight in a hotel in Nairobi city.
Situated in along the Nairobi River in beautiful Kenya, the capital of Nairobi is East Africa's most cosmopolitan city. It serves as an excellent starting point for African safari trips around Kenya.
Nairobi is Africa’s 4th largest city and is a vibrant and exciting place, and although it has developed a reputation which keeps tourist visits brief, there are some fascinating attractions: its cafe culture, unbridled nightlife, the National Museum, the Karen Blixen Museum and most notably just 20 minutes from the city center, the wild lions and buffalo roam in the world’s only urban game reserve. Make sure you pay a visit to the elephant orphanage operated by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

After lunch and quick itinerary briefing, you will go for an evening game drive. Return to the lodge for dinner.
The next day you spend a full day in Amboseli National Park to experience this beautiful and smaller park than the mara. You will see all the big five and many elephants. During the drive you have an opportunity of having an unique Maasai village experience.
More about Amboseli National Park
Located in the southern reaches of Kenya, the Amboseli National Park is renowned for its excellent variety of wildlife such as Masaai giraffe, elephant, lion, and cheetah and not surprisingly it is one of Kenya's most popular parks.
