Safari Drive, Amboseli National Park

On your drive through Amboseli, you will experience up to five different ecosystems – from dried up lakes, to woodlands and savannah. Famous for its elephant population, there will be opportunities to see these gentle giants up close. Also look out for the 'Big 5', hippo, zebra, giraffe, cheetah, wild dogs, dik dik, crocodiles, mongoose, hyrax and the sought after lesser kudu. Bird watchers will be in paradise – with over 600 species to look out for, you’ll want your binoculars and bird guide to hand.

Amboseli National Park boasts spectacular views of large herds of elephants in front of a gorgeous backdrop, Mount Kilimanjaro and its snow-capped peaks.
