Amboseli National Park

Have breakfast early and leave Nairobi Serena Hotel for a road trip to the wildlife rich plains of Amboseli National Park. Drive through the grassland viewing herds of elephants especially around the swamps oozing water melting from the splendid Mount Kilimanjaro. Stop over for a picnic in the lush grassland. Later, drive to Amboseli Serena Lodge.

A row of red painted modernized manyattas (huts of the Maasai) face the endless plains of Amboseli. The room’s interior displays stunning hand painted murals against a colorful mix of bright drapery and mats.

Wild animals frequent the swamps in the front yard of Amboseli Serena Lodge. However, a game drive can take you to more animals in the plains and thickets. Species to see include elephants, lions, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, wildebeests, cape buffalos and impalas among others.

Our guide will transfer you from the airstrip in Maasai Mara to the lavish but intimate Little Governors Camp. A drive through the plains will take you to Mara River, which you will cross by boat to reach the camp.

The view is magnificent. A swamp outside Little Governors Camp brings wildlife to this section of the plains. The tents have a set of safari chairs, a bed, African themed beddings over white linen sheets, a private deck looking out to the plains and an en-suite bathroom tucked in the corner.

The first excursion of Maasai Mara starts in the late hours of the afternoon. See elephants, leopards, lions, wildebeests, rhinos, cheetahs, zebras etc. Get back to camp for dinner and a relaxing time by the campfire overlooking the rolling hills.
