Itinerary

Day 01: Start of your Safari from Nairobi

We will collect you from your hotel or the International airport and transfer you to the domestic , Wilson airport for your 07.30am flight [ subject to schedule changes]. You will be brought to the airport at least 45mins prior to the flight. Board your flight to Amboseli – flying time approx 35 mins: Upon arrival you will be received and transferred from the airstrip to your overnight Lodge by the Lodge’s Driver guide in a 4x4 safari vehicle. Amboseli Serena Lodge is an acclaimed, luxury property which offers beautiful views of the surrounding Amboseli park. You will likely also be able to see Africa’s highest mountain – Kilimanjaro, from the lodge, provided the sky is clear. Kilimanjaro , for all its beauty, has a ‘shy’ peak, often remaining shrouded in cloud cover – Dawn and Dust are often great times to see the peak. Enjoy the rest of the morning at leisure before proceed for the delicious buffet lunch. After a short time for some ‘siesta’, get ready for your first African Safari game drive, at approx 3.30pm during which you explore the surrounding parts of the park and see its amazing wildlife.

In fact the park is a research base for an Elephant project [ not open to visitors] and helps us understand these highly perceptive and what we’d call ‘’sixth sense intelligent’’ animals.
