Overview

The Masai Mara & Amboseli Flight safari spends 2 nights in each destination where we marvel at the great scenery as we search for the Big Five.

This safari takes you first to Amboseli National Park, at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro famous for its big game and great scenic beauty. After a 2 night stay at Amboseli Serena Lodge you will then proceed via Nairobi to the rolling plains, woodlands and rivers that make up the Maasai Mara Game Reserve – one of the world’s richest wildlife sanctuaries. Accommodation will be at a Lodge or Camp.

We know Kenya’s best hotels, safari camps and lodges because we have personally tried and tested them.

A great mix of Evacay Africa’s best game-viewing destinations are carefully curated in a specially-adapted 6 seater Landcruiser (4×4) with pop-up roofs so that our guests can stand up when viewing wildlife and can take photographs.

 

A Higher-priced option, instead of the 4×4 Safari Mini Van, is to go on a road safari in a 4X4 Land Cruiser with pop-up roof. These take 6 passengers in 3 rows so each has a window seat
