Elephants roam beneath Mount Kilimanjaro, lions chase zebra across the grasslands, and vast wildebeest herds are on the move as Amboseli and the Masai Mara are home to some of Africa's most iconic safari images. These fabled destinations offer an excellent first-time African safari to combine exceptional game viewing with the raw wonders of the landscape. This 9-day safari reveals it all and culminates in a private conservancy that enhances the exclusivity of the Masai Mara.
Nairobi – Elegant Welcomes
Nairobi might be one of the continent's economic powerhouses, but its city skyline still glimpses at the wildness of Africa. Gaze out across the hills and you will see giraffe and elephants as they roam in the same panorama as towering as skyscrapers. It's a bizarre juxtaposition to see nature such an integral piece of the cityscape. You will be greeted at Nairobi International Airport and transferred to a hotel on the edge of the city, where your premium suite will overlook the savanna of Nairobi National Park. It's just a glimpse at wildlife, yet one that helps the anticipation build for the start of the safari tomorrow. The afternoon and evening are at your leisure, and the hotel is a quiet place to rest and relax with dinner in the hotel's restaurant included.
