Amboseli National Park Game Drives Adventures
African Safari is one of the most popular destinations among our clients. Visit to Amboseli National Park is a must when going to safari.
Home to some of Kenya’s biggest elephant herds. These gentle giants stroll across the landscape in their hundreds, a wonderous and awe inspiring sight! Exceptional views of Mt. Kilimanjaro, excellent wildlife and exotic birdlife… The name ‘Amboseli’ comes from a Maasai word meaning ‘salty dust’…
Tawi Lodge is our prime choice for lodging while exploring Amboseli. Set plum in the heart of its own private conservancy and in one of the richest game areas in Kenya, Tawi Lodge is an idyllic retreat whilst exploring the Amboseli ecosystem on the lower foothills of Kilimanjaro.
This Eco award winning lodge combines unpretentious comfort with subtle accents of style coupled with traditional East African hospitality, and a sense of warmth and genuine welcome, embracing traditional East African hospitality with our roots extending deep into our heritage here.
The lodge and cottages sprawl along the edge of dry acacia woodland with Mount Kilimanjaro standing proudly above. Elephants often pass right closeby, gently allowing close absorption into their secret lives, from the comfort of the cottage decks.
Each of the “elegantly rustic” cottages are richly appointed, most with incredible views looking out over the mountain, the cottages have spacious bedrooms, private decks, en-suite bathrooms, with both bathtub and shower each cottage has large, snug 4-poster beds.
With access to both Tawi Conservancy and Amboseli National Park, game drives are fantastic. Game vehicles are open sided, with camera charging facilities. Night game drives are available in the conservancy. Tawi guides are experts in their field, ready to share their extensive knowledge. At only 392km² Amboseli is a small park and the range of animals is not as extensive as that of other parks in Kenya but streams from Kilimanjaro surface in the centre of Amboseli, creating wetlands that support a rich diversity of wildlife and most of the classic big mammals are there. The species list includes lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, spotted hyena, giraffe and cheetah, and bird watchers will be happy with a list that tops 300 species.
