Behold the beauty of Southern Kenya with this trip to two popular national parks. Enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime safari as you spend 5 days between Amboseli National Park and Tsavo West National Park, which both sit in the shadow of iconic Mount Kilimanjaro.


This 5-day Kenyan vacation takes you to two of the nation’s most popular national parks. It features first-class accommodations, small group tours, and is a great add-on to a longer stay in Kenya. 

From Nairobi, you’ll ride the train to Emali and connect to Amboseli National Park, sitting on the southern border in the shadow of one of Africa’s greatest icons, Mount Kilimanjaro. In addition to its proximity to Kilimanjaro, Amboseli is renowned for its large population of elephants. Staying at the 4-star Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge, with its impeded views of the mountain and enviable position in a secluded grove of acacia trees, you’ll head on game drives through the park to see the herds of elephants crossing the savannah, leopards in the midst of the hunt, and buffalos fording streams. After an early game drive on your final morning in Amboseli, you’ll depart for Tsavo West National Park, where the diversity of Kenya’s landscape is most apparent. 

In Tsavo West, you’ll stay at the 4-star Kilaguni Serena Lodge, the first lodge built in the park. Located in the Chyulu Hills at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, the lodge has convenient access to the open plains, semi-desert scrub, bushy woodland, and rocky outcrops that define the park. Head on morning and afternoon game drives to spot red elephants, oryx, bushbucks, and lions stalking prey or sun-tanning on the warm rocks. At each day’s end, watch the sunset over the savannah while enjoying sundowners before falling asleep to the peaceful sounds of the wild. 

At the end of your stay, you’ll connect back to Nairobi to continue your onward journey.

    Set against the magnificent backdrop of Africa's highest mountain, the glittering Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge enjoys a uniquely privileged position at the heart of this world-famous national park. Secluded within a grove of acacia trees, the lodge looks out over the golden savannah plains, with uninterrupted views of the mountain itself. At the centre of 'Maasailand', the lodges' d├ęcor reflects the brilliant primary colours and iconic shapes representative of these legendary warriors. At the heart of the lodge, shaded by palm trees, is a free-form swimming pool; to either side of which stretch the rooms. Each room is housed in a single storey building opening directly on to the grounds, each reflecting a Maasai manyatta theme: each with its own hand-painted wall frescos. The central dining area is reached by a timbered bridge over a melt-water stream, while the lounge and bar feature a broad terrace and a blazing fire-pit where evening cocktails can be enjoyed.
