This magnificent 10-day safari is focused on observing elephants behavior in Tsavo, Amboseli, and Masai Mara. The Tsavo (48,000 km2), the elephant population is the largest in Kenya, consisting of 12,866 individuals while Amboseli, (8,000 km2), has about 1,500 individuals. Elephants move between Tsavo East – Tsavo West National Parks and Tsavo West – Amboseli – Chyulu Hills in different times looking for better feeding sites, fresh water, and shelter due to the scorching sun. Apart from the elephant observation experience, a whole pack of other species will be available for you to enjoy throughout the safari.
This safari will allow you to learn and understand the behavior of elephants directly from our very able researchers and guides. Apart from the elephant observation, you will also manage to view different species of the flora and fauna that the parks have to offer. The beauty of these ecosystems is topped up by beautiful landscapes, rivers, and waterfalls that complement life in the wild. The whole safari will be magnificently done by a well-informed team to ensure that the experience goes beyond your envisioned expectations.
