Nature lovers can explore five different habitats here ranging from the dried-up bed of Lake Amboseli, wetlands with sulphur springs, the savannah and woodlands.  During the day you will stop for a picnic lunch while enjoying views of the surrounds.  Return to the lodge around 4:00pm to enjoy some down time before dinner.
