There are plenty of lions and cheetahs and on a lucky day; why not spot the shy leopard in its natural habitat. Apart from the colorful flamingos, Amboseli National Park is blessed with an abundance of many other aquatic and no aquatic birds species alike.

In the afternoon we have also an option to visit a Masai village around the park to learn a little bit of their traditions and cultures and how they have coexisted with wildlife all the way to the modern times. Overnight is at Amboseli Sopa Lodge or Kibo Safari Camp. All meals included.
