Weekend Sun

Acacia Safari Tours

Far be it for me to paraphrase Aristotle, but I believe he was right when he said: “In all things of nature, there is something of the marvellous”.

Each day here I marvel at the natural wonders this place presents. Today, we were at Amboseli National Park where we took in the magnificent sight of Mount Kilimanjaro. We can organise a climb for you.

Can you imagine looking down on the plains from the mountainside? Snow rising above you, the plains stretching before you, as far as the eye can see.

If you enjoy climbing or hiking, this is a paradise. There are so many places to hike in Kenya.

From treks to sedate hill walks through game rich ranges, to high altitude routes on alpine slopes.

As always, you can count on the wildlife to appear along the way.

Today it was elephants.

I stopped counting after 37.

I just love Amboseli and you will too.

No matter how you chose to discover it, remember, we can organise your tour, your way.

Amboseli is known for its big skies and far horizons combined with swampy springs and dry and dusty earth trampled by hundreds of animals. The name Amboseli, comes from a Maasai word meaning ‘salty dust’.

Did I mention, I decided to avoid the ‘dry’ by ending the day with a delicious sundowner whilst watching a beautiful sunset?

The perfect ending to a glorious Kenyan day.
