September 30th our final day in Amboseli National Park

Our last two game drives and we begin our trek home to Canada. It was another amazing day and as with all safari’s each drive brings a different story. Here in Amboseli with all the swamp land the animals interact with their environment differently than the other regions we have visited. So each time we go out we know it’s going to be another spectacular drive.

Tomorrow we drive back to Niarobi where we will arrive mid day. We’ll enjoy lunch with our tour host family then check into day rooms to relax and prepare for our evening flight home. It’s been a great adventure and thanks to everyone at home for following along. A couple of days on the tour we topped 11,000 hits on the blog. Enjoy the photos from todays adventure.

Mount Kilmanjaro came in handy as a backdrop today


So many animals along the marsh lands, all the water comes from the Mountain

Time for a good old fashion sand bath


Elephants coming to the watering hole, love the landscape opportunities


This little oasis was another perfect backdrop to photograph the elephants
