Day 2: Nairobi / Amboseli (Approx 4hrs drive)

After breakfast check out drive to Amboseli National Park, famous for its big game and scenic beauty with the landscape dominated by the Mt. Kilimanjaro. It offers an interesting contrast in appearance with its dry and dusty appearance, which can be attributed to the volcanic ash that came out of Mt Kilimanjaro when it last erupted. In spite of the appearance, there is a continuous supply of water that gets filtered through volcanic rocks from Kilimanjaro's melted snow. These streams flow underground, creating lush green areas, and converge at two clear water springs in the park.
