Amboseli National Park, Kenya
After breakfast, transfer to Amboseli National Park, riding into unspoiled savannahs and past rocky thorn bush. On clear days you can see the snowcapped summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak. After lunch at the lodge, fashioned after Masai Manyatta architecture, set out on a game drive. You might spot elephants, impalas, or giraffes. Dinner is at the lodge.
You’ll find yourself falling into the daily rhythm of Africa by Day 5. On most safari days, enjoy both morning and late-afternoon game drives, with rest time midday. Specially outfitted safari vehicles ensure you a window seat, and the pop-up roof makes for excellent viewing and photography. Your sharp-eyed driver guides will help you spot even the most elusive wildlife. More than 50 large mammals call Amboseli home, and over 400 bird species. For a real treat, begin Day 5 with an optional dawn hot-air balloon safari over the park.
