Amboseli National Park
On the border with neighboring Tanzania lies the Amboseli National Park. On this trip you can hit two birds with one stone, as Africa’s largest mountain Kilimanjaro is so close that you can glimpse the mountain from Amboseli on the horizon.

Amboseli National Park was also home to the famous elephant, Echo, which is known for participating in a lot of research projects made by Cynthia Moss. Echo died in 2009 and turned 60 years old.
Nakuru means “dusty place”, which can be a bit misleading as the area exudes life and lush planting. In arid Kenya, places with water are usually also rewarded with a rich and varied wildlife that you can experience in their natural habitat.
Lake Nakuru is especially known for forming the home of countless pink flamingos. The lake has a pH value of 10.5, which is why Nakuru is actually a salt lake. In such an environment, the beautiful birds thrive absolutely amazingly. As soon as the pH value reaches 8.5, there is a great risk of algae, but the flamingos like to eat them.
It is estimated that the flamingos at Nakuru Lake consume as much as 250,000 kg. algae pr. hectares per year. the area around the lake it will also be possible to spot giraffes, black and white rhinos as well as other exotic bird species.
The Masai Mara is located next to the Serengeti Plain in Tanzania. This national park is especially known for its colossal number of wildebeest and zebras that migrate to the reserve annually for fresh food. The hike can be experienced in the period July to October.
