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 at a small camp in a canvas dome tent both saves money and adds excitement and adventure to your safari in this spectacular Park.
The camp is sited in the 15,000 acre private Selenkay Conservancy, which has a wealth of wildlife waiting to be discovered. All the big cats are here as well as elephants, large numbers of giraffes, zebra, and antelopes. There are also less common animals which may be seen such as the lesser kudu and African wildcat.
This 3 night package includes morning and evening game drives in a 4x4 safari vehicle in the conservancy, night drives and escorted nature walks with Masai guides, as well as a full day into the Amboseli National Park itself.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the dining tent and picnic lunches are provided for full day safaris into Amboseli National Park.
All you need to bring is your own sleeping bag and a towel - and your sense of adventure!

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.
