Itinerary for this Tour

DAY 1: Nairobi to Amboseli - Kenya

This Amboseli & Ol Pejeta Lodge Safari begins with collection in Nairobi, Kenya's capital city. Departing at about 9h00 we drive south to Amboseli National Park in a tour minibus. The drive takes us from Nairobi to our tented camp at Amboseli, a journey of about five hours, covering 128 miles.

Arrive at camp in time for lunch, followed by free time to relax and settle in. Then we have afternoon tea, before setting off for a local Maasai village. Walking in the village with a Maasai guide enables us to experience the local culture and see how the Maasai live. After our encounter with the most famous tribe in Kenya - the Maasai, we embark on a game drive in the exclusive Selenkay Conservancy.

We stop for sundowners at a scenic location in Selenkay, taking in the views of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain. Continuing our game drive into the night we look out for nocturnal animals in the Amboseli ecosystem. Back at camp we tuck into a tasty dinner and relax around the campfire.

  • Overnight at Selenkay Conservancy camp

Please note: There is an optional flight upgrade available at extra cost, if you prefer to fly from Nairobi to Amboseli instead of driving.

DAY 2: Amboseli National Park & Selenkay Conservancy - Kenya

Wake up to the sounds of nature at the safari camp and have breakfast before heading into the second most popular national park in Kenya.

We spend the morning game viewing in Amboseli, following a private track into the national park. Exploring Amboseli National Park in an open-sided 4x4 safari vehicle, we stop for a picnic lunch, then continue our search for wildlife. In the afternoon we return to camp and this evening we embark on a sunset-to-night game drive in the Selenkay Conservancy. Our evening drive takes us to a scenic place in the wilderness, where we pause for sundowners.

After sunset we drive on into the night using powerful spotlights to find animals in the dark. Nocturnal sightings include bat-eared foxes, servals, caracals, aardvark and African wild cats, among others.

Our night drive ends back at camp in time for dinner and another restful evening in the bush.

About Selenkay Conservancy & Amboseli National Park

Selenkay Conservancy is a remote wildlife concession located to the north of Amboseli National Park. This beautiful natural area was turned into a conservancy when the Maasai elders of the area decided to lease their lands to a safari company for this purpose. Wildlife numbers have grown steadily and animals have returned, including elephants which had been absent for two decades.

The exclusive Selenkay Conservancy encompasses woodlands, riverine bush and open plains that form part of the Amboseli ecosystem. Selenkay Conservancy offers a more secluded safari experience, away from the main tourist areas. This private wildlife conservancy features only one safari camp, ensuring crowd-free game viewing. The camp offers bush walks with Maasai guides and night drives in Selenkay.

Amboseli is Kenya's second most famous game park, after Masai Mara. The national park is best-known for its large elephant herds, including big elephant bulls, and the scenic backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro.

About Selenkay Conservancy Camp

This intimate tented camp offers an exclusive safari experience in the private Selenkay Conservancy within the Amboseli eco-system. The Selenkay camp is a classical African safari camp with the charm of pioneering times. The safari camp features nine tastefully furnished tents with en-suite bathrooms that have showers, wash basins and flush toilets.

This award-winning safari camp offers a real bush experience in a comfortable setting with friendly staff. The game drives are conducted by expert guides in open-sided 4x4 safari vehicles in Selenkay, where guests can escape the crowds.

About Ol Pejeta Conservancy

The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is one of Africa's rhino strongholds, hosting one of the largest and fastest growing population of rhinos. The wildlife conservancy is home to the Big Five of Africa and a high density of predators, as well as Kenya's only chimpanzee sanctuary.

The largest rhino sanctuary in East Africa, Ol Pejeta covers 90 000 acres (360 km²) of wilderness in the foothills of the Aberdare Mountains and Mount Kenya in north-central Kenya.

About Ol Pejeta Conservancy Camp

The camp only has seven tented rooms placed along a seasonal river inside the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. The tents are spacious and comfortable, with tasteful furnishings and ensuite bathrooms, fitted with hot showers and flush toilets.

The camp is set under acacia trees in a quiet valley - the tents positioned to offer the best views of the surrounding bush. Shared game drives are conducted by the expert guides in open-sided 4x4 safari vehicles during the day and at night. Guided bush walks are also offered and visits to the chimpanzee sanctuary.

The camp in Ol Pejeta Conservancy is eco-friendly, using alternative energy and impermanent structures that have a low impact on the environment. The tented camp contributes to local community development and hires Kenyan staff, prioritizing responsible tourism, as well as environmental sustainability.
