Experince an Amboseli Safari

Amboseli National Park is usually part of a broader Kenya safari which takes in other destinations such as the Masai Mara, Mount Kenya and Samburu National Park. By incorporating Amboseli onto these itineraries, the visitor is assured of a wide range of wildlife experiences and scenery, including iconic Mount Kilimanjaro. Some of these tours visit private Amboseli conservancies, offering excellent game viewing and diverse activities for you to enjoy.

There is also the opportunity to combine an Amboseli safari with other rewarding destinations in East Africa. Tanzania’s Serengeti – home to the wildebeest migration when it is not in the Masai Mara – and the Ngorongoro Crater – offering arguably Africa’s easiest Big 5 game viewing – are both included on an itinerary with Amboseli.

And if you feel like finishing off your safari itinerary with soft sand between your toes and a shady hammock spend an afternoon in, then an Amboseli safari is also part of a safari and beach combination. Blending the drama of Kenya’s top game viewing destinations with a beach resort on the Indian Ocean, the tour makes a great honeymoon or romantic trip.

Browse our recommended tours below, each including an Amboseli safari as part of its itinerary. Alternatively, if you’d like a more personalised approach, simply contact Safari Online and we’ll tailor-make an itinerary based on your needs and budget.

What to do in Amboseli

Activities to Look Forward To

1. Go on a game drive

Go on morning & afternoon game drives with expert guides to see Amboseli’s wildlife; vehicles are open sided & raised off the ground for easy views & photography. Some lodges offer a full-day game drive with picnic lunch.

2. See Mount Kilimanjaro

The soft light of dawn & sunset gives the best views of Africa’s highest peak but ‘Kili’ is an awe-inspiring sight any time of day, especially with a herd of elephants grazing on the savannah in front of it.

3. Walk Amboseli

Accommodations located in private concessions offer their guests guided nature walks as an extra activity. Usually enjoyed after the morning drive, these walks are a great way to view the smaller details & for birdwatchers to tick off a few more species.

4. Meet the Maasai

Many Amboseli lodges offer their guests not just the chance to sit back & watch nightly shows of traditional Maasai song & dance but opportunities to travel to local communities & meet the red-robed Maasai people in their own environment.

5. Explore by Night

Privately situated lodges in Amboseli offer night drives in addition to morning & afternoon drives. Armed with a spotlight, your guide will be on the lookout for Africa’s rarely seen nocturnal wildlife, including honey badgers, eagle-owls & bush babies.

Reviews

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.

Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!
