Getting There – Amboseli NP
Amboseli is located 365km/226mi southeast of Nairobi. Self-drive from Nairobi to the reserve is a good option if you already have wheels (or if you hire a car). You can also drive from other parks if you’re doing a road trip around the country. The distance from Tsavo East or Tsavo West is about 460km/285mi and the driving time is about eight hours.
Taking one of the daily scheduled flights from Nairobi to Amboseli’s airstrip is another option.
