Amboseli National Park

Amboseli: Elephants on the foothills of Kilimanjaro

Amboseli National Park is located immediately northwest of Mount Kilimanjaro and 240 km southeast of Nairobi, right on the Tanzanian border. This is certainly one of the most picturesque places in Africa to view game and the sight of herds of elephants trudging slowly across the plains in front of Africans highest mountain is as iconic as it is breathtaking. Amboseli is filled with the larger game species including zebras, giraffes and all of the other plains game, such as elephants and Africa’s big cats.

During the rainy season the expansive plains turn a vibrant green and hundreds of species of birds and small mammals arrive to feed on the profusion of life. There are five different habitats in Amboseli: open plains, acacia woodlands, thorn scrub, swamp and marshlands. This diversity of habitats allows for excellent game viewing all year round which explains why a tour to Amboseli is such a popular option with travellers.

The famous landmark of Observation Hill must be visited and from here you will be able to view the entire park and take some stunning photos.  You will also see the famous faces of the Masai people with their bright red shukkas and their long spears. The park has accommodation choices to suit everybody’s taste and budget, with everything from budget camping style bandas to high end luxury lodges.
