Early morning game drive before breakfast. There are good chances to see Mount Kilimanjaro on a clear day early in the morning. Arid looking as Amboseli has historically supported both game and the Masai that kept their herds of cattle here. It is thanks to the waters that run off Africa's greatest mountain that the apparently dry Amboseli, Kenya's first game sanctuary is able to support its wildlife. Mount Kilimanjaro broods high over Amboseli, generally cloaked by clouds but appearing in all its snow-shrouded magnificence from time to time. The mountain now provides water for the park, wonderful views and, of course, the most glorious background for animal photography. Lunch at the lodge. In the evening proceed on a game watching expedition till dusk. On a clear day the Sun set in the Amboseli is simply out of this world. You have an option to visit the Masai Village (extra cost) to see their way of living and learn more on their culture.
Dinner and overnight at camp/lodge.
