Dates for any of these trips can be tailored to suit clients’ itinerary.

One of the most popular parks in Kenya, we think it is a real gem. Forming part of a massive eco-system, the park itself is only 392 sq km and is situated at the foot of Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro. This great mountain forms the backdrop to most photographers’ pictures and on a clear day, the snowy peak of Kibo is seen. Elephants abound in the forest and swamps, feeding on the lush papyrus and other grasses. Cheetah, lion and many hyena can also be seen on the salt flats or in the forests. Giraffe, zebra and wildebeest are always spotted on the open plains or congregating at the edge of the swamps.
Full day game viewing in the park with possible clear views of the highest mountain in Africa,
Mt Kilimanjaro. This is a prefect backdrop to herds of elephant, Cape buffalo, giraffe the many species of plains game that are found here.
Following breakfast, there will be a game drive en route to the airstrip for the scheduled flight back to Nairobi. Upon arrival, you will be met and transferred to a city centre hotel where your safari ends.
