I thought that the wildlife was good but definitely thin. We spent an hour watching a group of elephants crossing the road. Another nearly an hour watching a dozen giraffes crossing the road. Masses of flamingos were excellent. Bird diversity was good but you have...More

As salination of the ground is progressing, trees are dying and animals getting scarcer. Only redeeming feature spectacular view of Kilimanjaro

While most people might already be aware of stunning kili views and huge elephants you can see in Amboseli National park, in 2018 Amboseli also attracted large number of Flamingoes! New lakes formed in Amboseli after the long rains and Flamingoes migrated to this lake.

One of the bonuses of Amboseli is that it provides good views of Mt Kilimanjaro - usually best viewed early in the morning. We were able to view many animals there but by far the most impressive was the large amount of flamingos. This certainly...More

Groupon African safari (5 Replies)
We are interested in a current Groupon for an Africa safari with Africa Answers- I've read some very favorable reviews on different African destinations and was hoping to get some input on the following gaming areas: Amboseli National Park, Lake Nakuru Nat. Park and Masai Mara- also, we are targeting mid March- would this be a good time of year to see lots of wildlife in these parks? Tks! Robin

I looked at the itinerary, and it is perfect. The lodges and hotels and camps are the same ones I used for years except I preferred the Serena at Amboseli. If the August or October departures work for you, those are the ones I would recommend. And the price is a great deal.

first safari holiday - currency, how much to take?? (4 Replies)
I'm going on a 6 day safari to Kenya followed by 4 nights in Zanzibar in January. The safari element is full board, with the latter part of the holiday half board. What currency do I need to take and also I have no idea of the cost of things so am a bit clueless in deciding how much money to bring with me. I've seen posts advising to take cash out of ATMs but I'm wondering if I we have access to an ATM for large parts of the holiday. We stay one day/night in Nairobi on arrival, then the...More

After paying your safari extra cash you need for extra staffs it's depend with what you will be interested in if it's Visiting Masai Village, hot air balloon, buying handicraft, tipping, also if you will like to take drinks. The least you can have with you is 200-300$ This if you are not interested of hot air balloon safari. ATM are many in Nairobi
