Trip Report – Amboseli & Lake Nakuru Safari 2020

I've been back in office for 2 days now & I am still sitting here trying to find words to describe this incredible adventure myself & 3 guests embarked on.

Not only is the exclusivity of a small group size a highlight but so is spending ample time in two of Kenyas most iconic wildlife destinations;

  • 5 Nights in Amboseli National Park; the park is famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to large herds of free-ranging elephant among other wildlife species & it also offers spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world & the highest point in Africa.
  • 4 Nights in Lake Nakuru National Park; Lake Nakuru is one of the Rift Valley soda lakes with an abundance of algae used to attract a vast quantity of flamingos that famously lined the shore. This lake is surrounded by one of the most incredible fever tree forrest leave one in high hopes if seeing what will emerge out of the mysterious depths or potentially finding the tree climbing lion/leopard.

As this was my second visit to these incredible destinations in the month of April which is Kenya's long rains period this years safari was slightly different as on arrival we learnt that the rains had not yet fallen.

At first, I was slightly concerned but very soon realized that there was nothing to worry about as rainfall does not determine great game viewing in these areas as there is a permanent water source available. We were blessed with the unthinkable!

As my words will never accurately describe what we got to experience, please feel free to watch the safari highlight video below as well as a number of images I managed to capture below that.

After seeing these, I'm sure that you will have no doubt in your mind (as I did) that, rain/no rain, the wildlife will still play their mind-blowing role!
