- Amboseli National Park
What Regions or Countries to Combine
One of Kenya’s smallest conservation areas, Amboseli National Park is best experienced as part of a larger itinerary in Kenya – and even beyond.
Top of the list of destinations to combine with Amboseli is of course Kenya’s flagship reserve, the Masai Mara. Home to the wildebeest migration, the ‘Mara’ remains one of Africa’s best destinations for big game regardless of the time of year and is easy to access – most of our tours feature charter flights between the two destinations. Other possible destinations in Kenya are the Samburu National Park, the private Lewa Conservancies and Mount Kenya, each offering a different aspect to the Kenyan landscape, its culture and its wildlife.
And thanks to Amboseli’s location close to the border with Tanzania, it is relatively easy to combine Kenya and Tanzania on a single safari itinerary, giving you the best of Kenya along with Tanzania’s ‘unmissables’ – the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Such combinations assure the traveller of amazing bio-diversity and many excellent photographic opportunities.

Packed with wildebeest from June to October, the Masai Mara also delivers excellent game viewing all year round & is particularly famous for its predators. Choose between lodges in the park itself & those in private concessions offering additional safari activities; be sure to take a dawn hot-air balloon safari for the best views of all.
Kenya’s unique northern park is home to big cats & wild dogs as well as elephants & unusual desert creatures. Lodges offer game drives & walks plus camel-back safaris, balloon adventures & cultural encounters with local Samburu communities. There are family-friendly accommodations available in Samburu as well as discreet honeymoon hideaways.
The golden beaches of Kenya’s Indian Ocean coast lie tantalisingly close to the country’s safari destinations – at least by air anyway. Tried-&-trusted air travel solutions get you from the dusty savannah & into an ocean-side hammock quicker than you’d think. Choose from a range of accommodations that include got-it-all family resorts, laid-back beach lodges & romantic retreats.
