Highlights of the tour
Detailed tour description
"Karibu" in Swahili means hospitable. Hospitable Kenya is happy to welcome you! A representative of Africa Royal Travel will meet you at the airport for a transfer to Amboseli National Park. Travel time is 4 hours. When you arrive at the lodge, you will have a hot and delicious lunch.
Amboseli, translated from the Maasai language, means "salt dust" (because long ago Kilimanjaro was an active volcano and during the eruption covered its surroundings with ash). Amboseli is home to all representatives of the "Big Five" - buffalo, elephants, black rhinos, lions and leopards. The elephant pictured on the backdrop ofKilimanjaro is a picture-perfect representation of Kenya. Although the volcano is located in Tanzania, Amboseli offers the best scenic view of its snow-capped peaks. The mountain, covered with snow and clouds, its mysterious beauty and grandeur complements the landscape of the Amboseli reserve.
An evening safari in Amboseli National Park will bring unforgettable experiences and gorgeous photos. You will be able to wave your good byes to the elephants strolling away to sleep in the direction of Kilimanjaro. And by the way, Amboseli is the only park in Kenya where tourists are allowed to walk. Return to the lodge and dinner.
Start the day with breakfast in a lodge with a magnificent view of Kilimanjaro. A beautiful morning, a delightful view. Next you are going for the morning safari on Amboseli. Enjoy, watch, admire. Peaceful herds of elephants numbering 500-700 individuals are not uncommon.

How to equip for a safari
When choosing clothes,you should give preference to inexpressive and non-branded shades of color, like khaki. Day clothes for safari should be light and breathable. In the evening you should resort to long linen pants and a long-sleeved shirt, which will serve as extra protection from mosquitoes.
On safari we will have to leave in the early morning, and at this time of day it can be rather cool, so be sure to bring a warm jacket or a windbreaker. In Africa, during the safari there are almost no walks, so choose shoes in which it is convenient to sit in the car - sneakers or sandals. However, the shoes should have a strong enough sole, so that if you have to walk, you do not pierce your feet with the thorns of acacias.Bring with you on safari:
- long-sleeved shirt and a pair of golf shirts/t-shirts;
- A warm sweater or a light jacket;
- light cotton pants and shorts;
- light sneakers, sandals, slates;
- baseball cap, hat, panama.
Protection from diseases
Most tourists are frightened by two exotic diseases: yellow fever and malaria. Below we will tell you what vaccinations should be done and which are only RECOMMENDED.
1. Yellow fever. To enter most African countries: South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Kenya, yellow fever vaccination certificate is NOT needed. For a visit to Tanzania, yellow fever immunization is a recommended measure, not a mandatory one. However, vaccination is required if you are entering from an epidemiologically dangerous country, which also includes neighboring Kenya.
2. Malaria. The risk of catching malaria does exist in an area with a humid warm climate and a lot of insects, but the chance of encountering a malarial mosquito is almost zero. The vectors of the disease are "tied" to standing water and do not move away from it further than 8 km. Therefore, the risk of being bitten by a malarial mosquito is high only in their places of permanent habitation: lowlands, swamps, near drying bodies of water, etc. But the minimum risk still remains a risk. Therefore, if you want to protect yourself you need to use quality repellents and use special drugs.
Remember, malaria vaccinations don't exist!
