Trip Report – Exclusive Amboseli & Mara Kicheche Safari, 2023

Having just returned from this tour that takes you to two of the icons of Kenya, The Masai Mara and Amboseli, this is my trip report where you can get an idea of what to expect on this incredible experience.

In this video below, I talk you through the trip as well as share some of our highlights that we were able to capture during our safari.

So much took place on this Safari, to the point that the photos and videos simply do not do it any justice. We were simply blown away, EVERY SINGLE day and that is what you can expect when travelling to these two icons.
