Your one-night stay at Hemingways Nairobi is on half board basis and drinks (excluding premium drinks). Dinner and overnight at Hemingways, Nairobi.

Destination: Nairobi, Kenya

East Africa’s most cosmopolitan city, Nairobi is Kenya’s beating heart, an exciting, maddening concrete jungle that jarringly counterpoints the untrammelled natural beauty to be found elsewhere in the country. Nairobi’s polarising character ensures that the city is reviled and loved in equal measure, and even those who love it might well admit that it’s the kind of place many rave about only once they’re away from it.

Overnight: Hemingways Nairobi

Set between Nairobi National Park and the foot of the Ngong Hills, Hemingways Nairobi is an exclusive boutique hotel far from the bustle of central Nairobi. An all-suite property providing full butler service, gourmet restaurant, a brasserie and a bar, it is perfectly placed for trips to Nairobi National Park and the capital.

 

Day Two: Nairobi – Amboseli National Park

Breakfast at Hemingways Nairobi. Check-out and transfer to Wilson Airport Nairobi, gateway to the flying safaris in Kenya. Time to board the Elewana Executive Grand Caravan. Your SkySafari will now take to the Air! Fly to Amboseli National Park. After a 45 minutes flight, you will land in the middle of the Park, the Tortilis Camp Team welcoming you at the airstrip. You will board your safari vehicles to be transferred to your Camp, with your first game drive en-route. You will arrive at the Camp in time for lunch. Then you have an afternoon game drive with a sundowner before driving back to the camp for dinner and overnight. Your stay at Tortilis Camp is for 2 nights in an en-suite Safari Tent, and is on all-inclusive basis (includes all meals, bush activities and drinks – excluding premium drinks). Lunch, dinner and overnight at Tortilis Camp.

Destination: Amboseli National Park, Kenya

Amboseli National Park is in southern Kenya. It’s known for its large elephant herds and views of immense Mount Kilimanjaro, across the border in Tanzania. Observation Hill offers panoramas of the peak and the park’s plains and swamps. Varied wildlife includes giraffes, zebras, cheetahs and hundreds of bird species.

Overnight: Tortilis Camp

Tortilis Camp is named after the flat-topped, umbrella thorn tree, the Acacia Tortilis, and embraces a hill in one of Amboseli’s areas of Acacia Tortilis woodland. Located in a private conservancy bordering the national park, game drives, walks, sundowners and bush meals take place both inside the national park and in the conservancy, where guests enjoy exclusivity.

Day Three: Exploring Amboseli National Park

Rise early to watch the African plains game wake up on a game drive and stop for a bush breakfast. Hot lunch will be served at the lodge. If you feel like stretching your legs and seeing the wilderness from a different perspective this afternoon there is a walking safari. Alternatively, you can have another game drive, with both activities culminating in cocktails watching the sunset, before returning to
camp for dinner.
