  • Hello Mary, when people do bad jobs then we are quick to complain, less so when we have received great service as we reason “well that’s what we paid for” and so the moment passes. I couldn’t possibly do that to you, starting from a point where I thought I was spending a lot of money on a holiday and I couldn’t really get value from it, could I? Well you delivered in spades, everything went perfectly, every direction, every arrangement, every stop off point all were out of the top draw. The itinerary was not only carefully planned but designed to make sure that one way or another we saw and experienced everything we could have wished for…elephants a plenty, lions a roaring, giraffes a watching and wild hunting dogs of course a hunting. The accommodation, food, hospitality at every stop was excellent, I believe I made friends that I will want to be in contact with for life and the days were fun filled and exciting. I have to mention OL Malo and Rockie and Colin, wonderful place and wonderful people, but I must also give the best of plugs for Lewa and Naboisho. Did I get value..oh yes..was it an experience of a life time definitely and would I trust you guys..in a heartbeat. Thank you, thank you.

Amboseli National Park

Just 180kms south-east from Nairobi, and with Mount Kilimanjaro as the impressive scenic back drop, Amboseli is one of Kenya’s best known parks and offers superb game-viewing, especially for elephant which have been studied here for many years by people such as Cynthia Moss.

Lying at an altitude of nearly 4,000’ at the foot of Africa’s highest mountain, the terrain in Amboseli consists mainly of scrub and fragile saline grass as the dry, volcanic ash will support little more. There are a few patches of acacia woodland, whilst the melting snows of Kilimanjaro feed rivers and springs which in turn supply water to Amboseli’s swamps and the (seasonal) lake. The mountain makes a scenic backdrop for photographing the variety of animals that are seen here. The Maasai people are also very much a part of life in Amboseli and they are often seen grazing their cattle on the community lands which surround the park. Some of these community lands have developed into conservancies, and whilst wildlife numbers are still growing, they do offer a more exclusive Amboseli safari away from the busier core areas of the park itself.
