Elephants in the Wild
On our quest for genuine and more intimate interaction with the animals in the wild, we will seek to acquire a deeper knowledge of the Elephant. We will therefore move south of the capital Nairobi to Amboseli National Park on the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. The Amboseli is world-renowned for its elephant population. Here we delve deeper into the social nature of the elephant in the wild. We will have an enlightening virtual segment on African Elephants. Where possible with coverage allowing, an interactive session will be held.

The northern advance bring us to Samburu, home to unique wildlife species that have adapted to the semi-desert environment. Here, most species are somehow unique. From the reticulated girraffe to the Gravis zebra and once again expect an exploratory journey that will dazzle.
At Samburu we will also meet with the Samburu people who have a rich and well preserved culture and heritage. This people to people experience will be an opportunity to interact with the people and even participate in a traditional ceremony. The Samburu are closely related to the more famous Maasai people but are a bit further withdrawn from the cities. Because of their remote location, the Samburu experience remains even more authentic.
