We booked a 6-day safari trip from Nairobi by the time-honoured method of Googling for options then choosing the second-cheapest option. (Actually, that's very unfair: there were only three options we liked, and one of them was outrageously expensive.) The people at Gracepatt Ecotours (especially Stephen, who drove us for the entire week over frequently-dodgy or sometimes nonexistent roads while also spotting animals) did us proud. Apologies in advance for the image quality: it's not easy taking pictures of distant wildlife with a 50mm equivalent prime lens, but I wasn't going to bring several kilos of camera with me for a year for the sake of a few days' safari.
We stayed at the lovely Kibo Safari Camp, just outside Amboseli National Park, for the first two nights. The park is famous for elephants and the views of Mount Kilimanjaro. It also has a lot of rather exciting birds.
We did see lions, but sadly, for every small group in the middle distance, like this:
...there were always several of these beasts hovering by.
Vultures, vultures everywhere!
Ahem. I meant this kind:
(there's also a bonus marabou stork for all you Irvine Welsh fans)
