1 – Amboseli not for the animals (if you have been to Ngorongoro, this is nothing) but the views of Kilimanjaro at sunset and sunrise
2 – it is $80 fee to enter Amboseli and even though it says 24 hrs access, thy still deny you the second entrance if you are staying outside of the park. So, remember to check your itinerary carefully. We ended up paying $80 for only a 3 hrs game ride in the afternoon and denied access at 6 am in the morning.
3 – skip staying in Nairobi…just head directly to the airport if you need to take your flight from there. There is also not much to see on the road from Namanga or Amboseli to Nairobi.
