  • Dear Frances, just to say the safaris were excellent. Your service was brilliant. Ange and I had a fabulous time. I’ll be filling in the questionnaire but just wanted you to know everything went well and all the pickups and hotels worked very well too. We were thrilled with both the Offbeat and the Naboisho experiences. It was a good mix and the flycamp was a marvellous icing on the cake and several of the other guests at Naboisho were envious of our experience though the walking safari was a good part of it too. We did see such diversity the abundance and close encounters were truly fabulous. Thanks for all your expertise in sorting places which were exactly right for what we were seeking. Much appreciated.

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.
