DAY 02: NAIROBI
After breakfast tour the famous Dapne Sheldrick’s Elephant ophanage then over to the Giraffe Centre for some interspecies camaraderie, and visit the former home of Karen Blixen, author—writing as Isak Dinesen— of Out of Africa, one of the most evocative books ever written about any earthly place.
Later driven back to your hotel.
Overnight at Fairmont the Norfolk Hotel
DAY 3 & 4: AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK
After breakfast at your hotel, you will be picked up and transferred to Wilson Airport for your flight to Amboseli National park.
You will fly south this morning over the Athi Plains to the natural wonderland of Amboseli National Park. Mount Kilimanjaro, the still-glaciated monarch of Africa, presides over Amboseli, thrusting three miles above the park’s grasslands.
Tortilis Camp is our base for game drives in this almost incomparably rich animal kingdom. Our spacious, luxuriously furnished, thatch-covered tents nestle under the huge and reposeful Tortilis acacia trees from which the camp takes its name.
All meals, gamedrives and overnight at Tortilis Camp
DAY 05 & 06: SAMBURU NATIONAL RESERVE
Your Larsen’s Camp experience begins the moment you land at the Samburu Airstrip, climb into the awaiting landcruiser and your driver will chauffer you directly to Larsen’s. Leaving the hot, dry Samburu Game reserve behind, Larsen’s will welcome you into a cool, green oasis with a freshly-squeezed glass of mango juice and a personal greeting from your Larsen’s host.
