The distance from Nairobi to Amboseli National Park 265kms and it takes approximate 4 hours by road to get there. The Amboseli adventures begin with spectacular Amboseli National Park. Situated in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. Amboseli is famous for its tremendous variety of big game. After lunch at our lodge we will be ready for an afternoon game drive. Amboseli is an excellent place to view a multitude of wildlife, including everything from Lions, Cheetah, Wildebeest, Giraffes and Baboons. Optional visit to a Masai village is available as this is the home of the Masai people. Here you learn about their tribal social systems, customs and the place of the Masai in today’s Africa. The residents live in their Manyatta, or village, much as they have for centuries and a visit gives you the opportunity to see the interior of these mud-hut homes, spotless and unadorned, contrasted with the Masai themselves, bedecked with brilliantly colored beads and cloths.
