With a spectacular backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro just over the border in Tanzania, Amboseli National Park is a wonderful safari destination, especially for anyone who is particularly interested in elephants. And staying in the small canvas dome tents at Gamewatchers Mobile Camp both saves some money and adds some excitement and adventure to your safari in this spectacular Park.
The camp is sited in a private conservancy with a wealth of wildlife and where you can go on walks with Masai guides and take night drives but it is also conveniently located for easy access to the Amboseli National Park.
All you need to bring is your own sleeping bag and a towel - and your sense of adventure!
You will be collected early this morning (either from the airport or your hotel in Nairobi) and transferred to Wilson Airport.
At Wilson Airport, you will board the morning flight to the Selenkay Airstrip.
Safarilink 11 (Light Aircraft): Fly from Wilson Airport (WIL) departing at 07:30 to Selenkay Airstrip, arriving at 09:00
You will be met at the airstrip and transferred to your safari camp in the private Selenkay Conservancy, an important wildlife dispersal area for wildlife moving out of Amboseli National Park. The private conservation area ensures the best possible game viewing in proper off-road safari vehicles, off the beaten track and away from other tourist vans and minibuses. On one day you will venture into the Amboseli National Park, which is most famous for its elephant population, where herds of up to 100 can be seen on game drives, along with buffalo, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, impala and warthog. Not surprisingly, never far away from these herds of grazers are lion, leopard, cheetah, jackal, hyena and serval cat. The birdlife is also extremely good, with over 400 bird species recorded, including over 40 birds of prey.
