Safari Experience: Prepare for an unforgettable adventure in Amboseli National Park! 

On Day 1, we’ll pick you up from the Nairobi Serena Hotel and head to Amboseli National Park. Enjoy a scenic drive through the countryside before checking into Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge for lunch. Then, embark on an afternoon game drive to spot wildlife before settling in for dinner and an overnight stay at the lodge. 

Day 2 promises a full day of exploration with morning and afternoon game drives, offering stunning views of Mount Kilimanjaro and the chance to encounter Africa’s iconic wildlife. 

On Day 3, after breakfast, we’ll return to Nairobi where you’ll be dropped off at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your return flight. Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge offers luxury accommodations that seamlessly blend with nature, while your transport will be a 4×4 Land Cruiser driven by experienced guides. Don’t miss the chance to witness elephants, diverse wildlife, and the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro views.”
