Next, you will stay at Tortilis Camp, the only upmarket option within Amboseli National Park and Kenya’s first eco-lodge! Your time in the Maasai Mara National Reserve is spent at Sand River, a stunning 1920s-style camp with a riverside location. And the destination for the final part of your trip is the Mara North Conservancy, for the characterful Elephant Pepper Camp!
