Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park is lies in the shadows of the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, like the Masai Mara, this park presents it's visitors with good opportunities for wildlife viewing. Amboseli National Park is 392 square kilometres, lying at the border with Tanzania. The famous Masai people are the main inhabitants of the area – “Amboseli” means “place of water” in the Masai language.

The Kilimanjaro peak is present on the horizon in large parts of the park, although clouds often cover it in mystery. When clouds are gone, the view is simply stunning. Sunrise and sunset are the best moments to view the mountain.

A large part of the park consists of open plains making wildlife spotting much easier. Besides open plains, the habitats consist of rocky thorn bush country, acacia woodland, marshland and swamps.

Amboseli National park is elephant country par excellence. You’ll encounter whole herds of elephants with exceptionally large tusks, and they are sometimes surprisingly relaxed around tourist vehicles. Other large animals to be spotted here include buffaloes, lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, gazelles, etc. Hippos can be seen bathing in the many water and swamp channels.

Apart from game viewing, it’s possible to visit Masai villages inside the park against payment. You’ll do things like drinking tea with the village elders and the warriors, watch traditional dancing and, take pictures and, of course, buy some souvenirs
