You will drive from Nairobi for a scenic drive to Amboseli National Park. The main Nairobi-Mombasa road leads southeast, falling around 500 meters from the 1,661 meters altitude of Nairobi to Emali. From Emali, the road runs south before turning in a northwesterly direction and passing to the north of Mount Kilimanjaro before reaching Amboseli. Approximate journey time is four to five hours. The route details and journey times may vary depending on road conditions.
You will arrive at the lodge in time for lunch and later you will have an afternoon game drive through the Amboseli National Park. The compact park is abundant with wildlife and allows you for excellent game viewing. Its vegetation consists of a combination of sprawling grasslands, swampy springs, and dry dusty earth. Amboseli is most famous for its large elephant populations, with the bulls having some of the biggest tusks in the world.
From Observation Hill, you will have a view of the entire park and especially the swamp areas where buffalo, elephants, hippos, and a diversity of water birds come to cool off and refresh themselves. Later, you will return to your camp for dinner and overnight at AMBOSELI SENTRIM.
This is the day when you can discover the Amboseli National Park. You will spend a full day in the park with packed lunch. There will be morning and afternoon game drives. The park derives its name from the Masai word “empusel”, meaning salty, dusty place. It is declared a national park in 1974 to protect its unique and fragile ecosystem. The Amboseli National Park offers landscapes of remarkable contrasts: arid zones alongside the lush oases of the swamps.
The ecosystem of this low rainfall region depends on water from Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895 meters).

Covering an area of 392 square kilometers, the park is, in addition to elephants, home to numerous animals who live alongside the Masai villages.
