Safari Kichwa Tented 10 Days





Excerpt:

This safari takes you to Amboseli National Park, where the snows of Kilimanjaro form a majestic backdrop to a landscape teeming with lion, elephant, leopard, rhino, cheetah, buffalo and a host of other game. One of the four private game reserves in Kenya, Sweetwaters excels in the provision of privileged seclusion and private game viewing. Due to its private status, it also allows such unforgettable pleasures as night game drives, guided bush walks and bush horse or camel riding across its game teeming plains. Masai Mara, located in the south west of Kenya, shares its border with Tanzania. Here the open savannah, dotted with acacia trees contains an astonishing concentration of game.
