DAY 2: NAIROBI - AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK

From Nairobi Wilson airport, catch the Safarilink flight down to the Amboseli Airstrip, landing mid-afternoon. Located at the foot of the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro, Satao Elerai is a lovely base from which to explore one of Kenya's most scenic, yet strangely under visited, national parks. The lodge is within a 5000-acre private reserve leased from the local Elerai Maasai community to protect the land from poaching and habitat infringement. The area is a critical wildlife corridor and therefore important to protect. Tonight, you will enjoy a sundowner in the bush.

Your last full day of the trip can either be spent relaxing at the camp, or extra activities can be enjoyed for an additional cost such as visits to a traditional Maasai Manyatta, sundowner drinks trips and guided bush walks. Many visitors to the camp will also want to try one of the Mara's most iconic experiences, a sunrise hot air balloon trip followed by a Champagne breakfast in the bush. These must be pre-booked as spaces are very limited especially during high season.
