|Offer valid through 9/30/2018|
|Day 1||Nairobi||Nairobi / Amboseli (Approx 4hrs drive)|
On arrival at JKIA, you are met by a NATURE EXPEDITIONS driver/guide for the drive to Amboseli National Park, famous for its big game and scenic beauty with the landscape dominated by the Mt. Kilimanjaro. It offers an interesting contrast with its dry and dusty appearance, which can be attributed to the volcanic ash that came out of Mt Kilimanjaro when it last erupted. In spite of the appearance, there is a continuous supply of water that gets filtered through volcanic rocks from Kilimanjaro's melted snow. These streams flow underground, creating lush green areas, and converge at two clear water springs in the park. You will arrive in time for lunch. Afternoon game drive until sunset. Dinner and overnight at AMBOSELI SENTRIM CAMP or similar (full board)
