PCR Testing – we can’t take the test for you, but we’ve got the where and how covered!

Most countries and airlines require proof of a negative Covid PCR test. As your safari experts, we know their requirements and will take care of scheduling tests during your travels in Kenya and Tanzania, so that it’s conveniently planned into your itinerary and taking into consideration that results take between 24-72 hours. Tests cost between $100 and $330 per person, per test including transport to the testing facility. Your Africa Specialist will give you more information as it relates to your itinerary.

Day 1 - Arrive Nairobi

Welcome to Nairobi, Kenya’s vibrant capital city!

On arrival at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport you will be met by a local Lion World Travel Africa representative and whisked away to the 5-star Hemingways, a haven of calm, built on an old coffee plantation at the foot of the Ngong Hills. The hotel is ideally placed for exploring – perhaps to feed the residents at the Giraffe Centre, meet orphaned elephants at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust or visit the Karen Blixen Museum. Or you might choose to relax and wander the bird-filled gardens, dip in the pool, take afternoon tea on the terrace or sip cocktails in the Hemingways bar. Dinner will be at the hotel this evening.

Day 2 - Nairobi/Amboseli

After breakfast and a briefing at the hotel, you will be transferred in a private vehicle to Nairobi’s Wilson Airport for your SkySafari flight to Amboseli National Park.

On arrival enjoy a game drive en-route to Tortilis Camp. Amboseli is Africa at its most iconic. This vastness of open plains, swampland, thorn bush and fever trees unfurl below snow-capped Kilimanjaro, the world’s highest freestanding peak and an unrivalled safari backdrop.

Part of a two-million-acre ecosystem, crossing from Kenya into Tanzania, Amboseli is one of the best wildlife-viewing locations around. Most notable are its 100-strong herds of elephants, including big old tuskers, but there’s an abundance of other species too, from buffalo and hyena to lion and cheetah as well as over 600 types of birds.

The spacious, well-appointed thatched tents of Elewana Tortilis Camp are set in a private conservancy, with views of Mount Kilimanjaro. An ecotourism award winner, Tortilis offers all you’d expect from a 5-star property but with a low environmental impact. Experienced guides will reveal both Amboseli’s star attractions and its minute, magical details.

After lunch, enjoy and afternoon game drive followed by dinner at the camp.

Accommodation: Elewana Tortilis Camp (B, L, D)
