Days 1 – 2: A Spectacular First Safari at Amboseli National Park
The snow-capped Uhuru Peak gazes down on Amboseli, Africa's highest point rising dramatically from the surrounding grassy plains. Elephants walk slowly across the landscape, their bodies silhouetted against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro. Every morning in Amboseli brings this fairy-tale view, with elephants roaming wild beneath the world's highest freestanding mountain.
Day 3: Overlooking the Waterhole in Mount Kenya National Park: The diversity of Kenya's parks ensures that every day brings a new safari experience. Travel through the rural green hills of southern Kenya as you head towards Mount Kenya. At 7,200 feet above sea level, on the thickly forested foothills, a new world of wildlife provides an atmospheric feast for the senses. Spotting game is not so easy in such a dense forest. So rather than battle through the trees, you just need to sit back and wait for the wildlife to come to you.
Days 4 – 5: The Unique Residents of Samburu National Reserve : The safari adventure continues in the northern hemisphere. After breakfast you'll drive through the equator, stopping for a famous photo with your feet straddling this imaginary line. Palm fringed rivers and dusty red plains welcome you to Samburu National Reserve, an isolated land that offers a sanctuary to a rare cast of animals. Long necked gerenuk stands on their hind legs, this rare antelope craning to reach an elevated tree branch. Dik dik hide in the short grass; they are the smallest of Africa's antelopes and one of its most charming.
