6 Days Kenya Family Expedition

Nairobi - Tsavo West - Amboseli National Park - Nairobi

Day One

Arrival Nairobi

The Sarova Stanley

On arrival, transfer to the Sarova Stanley hotel to relax ahead of your safari. From the moment the hotel opened its doors in 1902, it has welcomed illustrious guests from Grace Kelly to Sinatra to Hemingway – who wrote here and mentions the hotel in his works. Stepping through the century-old revolving doors, away from the bustle of vibrant Nairobi, to be greeted with rich Victorian décor and walls adorned with ancient clocks and faded photographs, feels like stepping back in time.

Days Two - Three

Tsavo West National Park

Voyager Ziwani Camp

The landscape of Tsavo West is spectacularly varied, with semi-arid plains, open grasslands, dense woodlands, rocky outcrops and lava flows. The soil is rich and red in colour and this creates the illusion of magnificent red elephants – which are actually covered in dust from the soil. The park is also home to wildlife including rhino, buffalo, leopard, lion, waterbuck, lesser kudu, giraffe and gerenuk. Voyager Ziwani’s location allows for some other interesting sightseeing. Once the site for the German Schutztruppe garrison in the First World War, there are World War I and II battle sites nearby. Climb the Roaring Rocks for breathtaking views over the park and listen to the wind whistling up the escarpment, hike the volcanic Chaimu crater nature trail, and visit popular Mzima Springs – a series of pools fed by underground streams.

Days Four - Five

Amboseli National Park

Oltukai Lodge

Amboseli has some of the most dramatic views of ‘Kili’ – more so even than in Tanzania. Sunrise and sunset are spectacular in many national parks, but here, over Mount Kilimanjaro, are some of the best. The park has a large concentration of wildlife, particularly in the dry season. There are over 1000 elephants, including some of the largest in Africa. As well as the huge herds, catch sight of buffalo and lions in the open savannah, rolling hills and swamplands. Other wildlife inhabiting the grasslands includes cheetah, rhino, waterbuck, zebra and warthog amongst others. Though largely dry and dusty, Amboseli is also home to swamplands, fed by underwater springs from the meltwaters of Mount Kilimanjaro. These lush green swamplands attract wallowing elephants and hippo, as well as buffalo and birdlife. More than 400 species of bird can be found, including the rare Taita falcon and the southern banded harrier eagle.
