4-day Kenya: Elephant Watching

‘Hakuna matata’, as the swahili people say. A no worries safari, that is our 4-day route.

Always wanted to experience a hassle-free safari ? Then this route is perfect for you. Relatively close to Nairobi, Amboseli National Park offers lots of wildlife, amazing landscapes and excellent game drives. All you need and more!

This is an exclusive, private safari that allows you to travel at your own pace. There are numerous advantages to such a trip. First of all: rejoicing in a private safari vehicle and a personal guide. This allows you to decide what time to leave in the morning and what time to come back, taking into account your guide’s advice. Secondly, once you are in a national park, you can observe specific animals or herds for as long as you like. No one will push you to move along. And lastly, your personal guide knows your wishes and will advise accordingly, turning your trip into an unforgettable experience… which begins tomorrow morning!

The hotels shown below are Gold Class. If you prefer more luxury, you can also opt for Platinum- or Diamond Class hotels.

Day 1: Arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport

‘Jambo!’ As you walk out of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, your personal Africa Safari Trips guide greets you with a big smile on his face. ‘Karibu Kenya – welcome to Kenya!’

Our Africa Safari Trips guide takes you straight from the airport to your hotel, which gives you the first impressions of the vibrant city of Nairobi. You take in the skyscrapers, the traffic with the motortaxis and colourful matatu’s (local public transport), and the hussle and bussle of people living their every day life…

Ask your guide anything that comes to mind, because he knows all about Kenyan life and culture. But not only that; he also gladly tells you everything about the beautiful national parks you are about to visit. So ask whatever you want – he will do his utmost best to answer all your questions…!

Day 2: Afternoon safari in Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park lies on the border between Kenya and Tanzania at a four hour drive from Nairobi. You arrive here just in time for lunch and an afternoon gamedrive at sunset…!

Amboseli is almost 400 square kilometers in size and offers a magnificient view of the beautifully snowcapped Mount Kilimanjaro. The park is home to many animals but foremost famous for its large groups of free-roaming elephants. Here you will have the chance to take some iconic pictures of elephants in front of the Africa’s highest lone-standing mountain.

Up until 2020 the park was a safe haven to an incredible bull elephant named Tim (see picture). This mighty leviathan quickly became one of Amboseli’s major attractions because of his size and iconic tusks that reached the ground. He was around 50 years old at the time of his death in February 2020.

Day 3: Full day safari in Amboseli National Park

Today we advise you to get up early, and take the chance to do a gamedrive at sunrise – the time when animals are most active.

This day is reserved completely for game drives, which allows you to explore Amboseli to the fullest. It stretches over an area of 392 square kilometers and is dominated by acacia woodland, rocky thorny bush, swamps marshland and a Pleistocene lake. The usual safari suspects roam around here in good numbers: giraffes, zebras, buffalos, elephants of course and big cats like lions, cheetahs and leopards.

The Masai live close here and are actually the ones who gave the park its name: Kioko Lake is a lake in the middle of the park that often completely dries up during the dry season. The ashy earth that remains is called amboseli by the Maasai people. This is where the park’s name came from. During your time to Amboseli, you can also discover Maasai culture by visiting one of their villages.

Day 4: Ready for your flight back home...?

Take in the beauty of Amboseli one last time, because this is the last day of your safari…! If you still want more, it is possible to add some national parks to your safari. Otherwise you can drive back to Nairobi for your flight back home.

However, we advise to hop on for an adventurous train ride to Mombasa to catch your flight there. Or to continue your holiday… on the beach!

Kenya has some amazing tropical beaches to help you unwind after your safari. We at Africa Safari Trips especially like the stunning stretches of beach in the south of Kenya. There is the beautiful Diani Beach 20 kilometers south of Mombasa, and lively Bamburi Beach north of the city. Think crystal blue oceans, sandy white beaches, endless pools and colourful cocktails. As a plus, historical Mombasa is just around the corner…!
