|Day 1||Nairobi||Day 1: Nairobi/Amboseli (Approx. 4hrs)|
Upon arrival at J.K.I.A pick up by nature expeditions representative and drive south east of Nairobi to Amboseli National Park. The Park is famous for its big game and scenic beauty with the landscape dominated by Mt. Kilimanjaro. It offers an interesting contrast with its dry and dusty appearance, which can be attributed to the volcanic ash that came out of Mt Kilimanjaro when it last erupted. In spite of the appearance, there is a continuous supply of water that gets filtered through volcanic rocks from Kilimanjaro's melted snow. These streams flow underground, creating lush green areas, and converge at two clear water springs in the park.

|Day 3||Nakuru||Day 3: Amboseli/Nakuru (Approx. 6 - 7 Hrs.)|
After breakfast, depart to Lake Nakuru which is one of the Rift Valley soda lakes at an elevation of 1754 m above sea level. The lake lies to the south of Nakuru town, in the rift valley of Kenya and is protected by Lake Nakuru National Park. Arrive for lunch at Sentrim Elementaita; later in the afternoon depart for the game drive in the park. Lake Nakuru is among Kenya's finest national parks. Flanked by rocky escarpments, pockets of forest and at least one waterfall, the park is pretty year-round. You can also expect to see both black and white rhinos; look past the hordes of horny baboons and you'll see hippos, or perhaps a lucky leopard or two. There are also about 50 rare tree-climbing lions in the park, spotted several times per week. The usual zebras, buffaloes and Rothschild's giraffes seal the deal. The forested area below Flamingo Hill is a favorite lion-spotting point. It's here that you should look up, not down as you are used to in other parks - lionesses love to sleep in these trees. Leopards frequent the same area. The caves beneath Lion Hill in the park's northeast once served as a defacto lion cub nursery. These days, they are more commonly frequented by snakes. Pythons lurk in the cool, forested areas early in the mornings. The lake's abundance of algae attracts the vast quantity of flamingos that famously line the shore. Other birds also flourish in the area, as do warthogs, baboons and other large mammals. Eastern black rhinos and southern white rhinos have also been introduced Later in the evening return for Dinner and overnight at Sentrim Elementaita (Full Board)
