10 Days Elephants and Big Cats Kenya Safari

Visit the elephant countries and see the enormous herds of Elephants in Kenya - Amboseli, Samburu. Then look our for the Big Cats in Masai Mara Game reserve. This is a 10- day safari using a combination of road transfers and light aircraft transfer to get from one park to the other. Game drives are in private vehicle in Amboseli and Masai Mara and in shared open-side safari vehicles in Samburu. Amboseli Park is famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants among other wildlife species. Other attraction of the park includes opportunities to meet the Maasai people and also offers spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world. The Samburu National Reserve is located in the northern part of Kenya, a remote park that that not many people outside of its residents get to see in person. The reserve is incredibly important though because it is home to a large population of elephants and other endangered species and serves as the headquarters for the organization Save the Elephants and its many conservation programs. A stunning landscape, populated by a proud warrior people and incredible prolific wildlife, the Masai Mara is a powerful magnet for anyone with a taste for safari adventure holidays.

After an early breakfast at your hotel in Nairobi, you are picked by a professional driver guide who will be with you for the next 2 nights on safari. You depart heading to Amboseli National Park. Amboseli is renowned for its elephant populations and large herds, including some impressively tusked bulls are drawn to a series of large, lush swamp lands. But the most impressive giant of all is Mt Kilimanjaro. Africa’s largest mountain lies just over the border in Tanzania, but the most impressive views of its snow-capped peak are to be found in Amboseli. The early light of dawn turns the mountain a dark hue of purple, and its snows into an ethereal pink. The sight of Kilimanjaro high above herds of elephant crossing the plains of Amboseli is a timeless African image. This area is home to many Maasai communities, centered around the Amboseli National Park. The park is 400 sq kms, with its southern boundary along the Tanzanian border. The park is home to more than just Elephants, and herds of wildebeest, zebra and impala graze on the open plains.. There are areas of acacia forest that make for good birding, and are home to many small mammals. Cheetah are also often sighted here. The park is centered around a large hill, with fantastic views of the surrounding plains, often crossed by whirlwinds that send winding columns of dust into the sky. This open country is good walking territory, and many camps and lodges organize game walks, or trips to spend time in local Maasai villages. Read more
