Combining a safari between Mombasa and Amboseli is possible since they lie in the same geographical location.You can plan for one week Mombasa preferably Diani beach, then take three days in Amboseli and three days Arusha and back to Nairobi.

This is workable and you can cross to Arusha from Namanga border which is 2 hours or so drive. You can try contact Charterlink Tours and Travel they have safari options starting Mombasa and crossing to Arusha onwards they could be best option.

You wouldn't want to visit Arusha for just one day from Namanga - too much of a rush. And it's already a long day's drive from the coast to Namanga.

My suggestion is you can have 2 nites in Amboseli National park and an overnight in Arusha.

Thanks,Stephen.

How far is Amboselli from mombasa? Your suggestion is good and worth considering. While in Arusha, is it possible to include Ngorogoro crater area?

Mombasa to Namanga is just under 600km.

Thanks,you're absolutely right-600km is a long way. We're thinking of 1 night in Amboselli and 1 night in Arusha, 1 night near Ngorogoro crater/Serengeti & back to Mombasa. Is that possible? Total 3 nights and 4 days.

Just about possible if you just want to keep driving every day (though I don't think even then you would make it to Serengeti). The problem is that you need to spend at least 24 hours in any park area to enjoy it properly, and preferably 2 or 3 nights. Arriving at the end of the day and leaving again the next morning means you may miss the late afternoon/early evening game drive and the morning game drive - which are the best times to see the wildlife.

Hello ,Leroy here its very much possible but very much tiresome, also you might not have the thrill since you wount see more in that short span , most of your time would be spent on the road # sounds more of a road trip to me.
