KENYA & TANZANIA – Buffalo in the Serengeti – 8 days

This safari is subject to availability, and its price may vary.  Prices are per person, sharing a double room. Single supplement applies.

 Day 1: Amboseli

Upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you are welcomed by our airport representative and transported to Amboseli Sentrim Lodge for lunch. The tarmac road passes through the Athi Plains where formerly the Burchell’s zebra, the Masai giraffe and smaller herbivores roamed about freely. With human encroachment the wildlife is confined to game parks. There is an advantage to this because one has to drive inside a park to be rewarded with the sight of many different species of animals. Lunch is followed by a game drive in the park at the foot of Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro (19,340 ft). In the late afternoon, one is likely to see a lion or cheetah make a kill. Mount Kilimanjaro in the background makes for amazing photographs.
