On this luxury four night safari, guests will be introduced to Kenya's Amboseli National Park, which embodies five main wildlife habitats: open plains; acacia woodland; rocky thorn bush; swamps and marshlands.
The melting snows of Kilimanjaro flow underground into the park and continually feeds water to springs, swamps, and marshes providing much needed hydration. This fragile ecosystem supports an impressive wildlife variety, with more than 50 mammal species. This Park is known for huge wandering herds of elephants whose silhouettes decorate the flat landscape. Amboseli's elephants are said to be the biggest in Kenya and can be found in the swamps where they share the cool waters with the hippos that hide beneath the papyrus.
