HIGHLIGHTS FROM EAST AFRICA GORILLA & SAFARI EXPERIENCE

AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK
Amboseli National Park is a true photographer’s paradise. The snow-covered peak of Mt Kilimanjaro forms a majestic backdrop for one of Kenya’s most spectacular displays of wildlife. Despite its small size (392 sq km/151 sq mi) and fragile ecosystem, the park supports a wide range of mammals (50-plus species of large animals) and birds (more than 400 species). Join a safari in search of elephants, lions, rhino, cheetah and, of course, the photo of a lifetime.

MASAI MARA
Masai Mara is Kenya's most famous wildlife reserve, nestled within the enormous Great Rift Valley. Named for the Masai tribe and the Mara River, it is known for its Great Migration of millions of wildebeest, along with zebra and gazelle; one of the most impressive natural events worldwide. There are plenty of other animals to be seen, including lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, ostriches, and many others.

NAIROBI
This busy metropolis and capital city has an intoxicating mix of African and Indian culture, which are both well-represented in the local cuisine. Enjoy artsy cafes with a cup of famous Kenyan coffee, and bring your dancing shoes -- Nairobi has a fantastic nightlife. For a taste of history and archaeology, visit the National Museum, home to most of the great prehistoric finds made by the famous Leakey family.
