Overview
More
Amboseli National Park is a photographer's paradise thanks to the abundant wildlife such as lions, cheetahs, rhinos, and buffalo roaming under the shadows of majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest peak. With its large concentration of African elephants, Amboseli National Park is a fantastic choice for a truly breathtaking camping safari, in front of the world's finest photographic backdrop.Day 1 Amboseli National ParkDepart early from Nairobi, venturing south to the famed Amboseli National Park. Stop at your camp to enjoy lunch before beginning your safari in search of lions, elephants, rhino, and other large game, with "Kili" providing the ultimate photo backdrop.Venture south to the famed Amboseli National Park located at the foot of Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. The snow-capped peak of the mountain dominates every aspect of the park, providing the ultimate photo backdrop. Amboseli covers only 392 sq km, though despite its small size and its fragile ecosystem the park supports a wide range of mammals (well over 50 of the larger species) and birds (over 400 species). After lunch at your safari camp, spend the afternoon criss-crossing the park in seach of lions, buffaloes, elephants, rhino, cheetah, and of course the photo of a lifetime.A part of the park is composed of a dried-up lake bed which in the shimmering heat produces mirages. Swamps and springs, fed by underground rivers fromsafari camp, form permanent watering places for the wildlife through times of drought. The snows of Kilimanjaro form a majestic backdrop to one of Kenya's most spectacular displays of wildlife creating Kenya's most sought after photographer's paradise. The park's best game drives are around the swamps and there is a fine lookout on Observation Hill which offers views over the whole of the park and beyond.Years ago this was the locale around which such famous writers as Ernest Hemingway and Robert Ruark spun their stories of big-game hunting in the wilds of Africa. In addition, the park that has been made famous by Cynthia Moss, the noted American naturalist and author who has one of the longest-running studies on elephants. You might even see some of the elephants that Cynthia has immortalized in her many books and award-winning film Echo of the Elephants.Day 2 Amboseli National ParkThis is your full day to enjoy Africa at its best - countless wildlife encounters through open plains spotted with flat-topped acacia trees. Before returning to camp, stop at a traditional Masai village for an optional visit to learn about the local Masai culture.This is your full day to enjoy Africa at its best - countless wildlife encounters through open plains spotted with flat-topped acacia trees. Before returning to your safari camp in the evening, stop at a traditional "Manyatta" (Masai village) for an optional visit to learn about the local Masai culture.Part of Maasailand, Amboseli National Park is thus the home of the Masai people, those tall, proud nomads whose legendary prowess in battle and single handed acts of bravery in fights with wild animals has spread across the globe. Perhaps more than any other community in Kenya, the Masai have learned to live in complete harmony with their environment, and coexist and thrive together with the wildlife that surrounds them. The park is surrounded by Manyatta quickly built out of bent poles and sticks and plastered with cow dung and equally swiftly abandoned when the grazing is finished and the herds must move on.Day 3 Amboseli National ParkRise early for a final morning game drive, enjoying the African sun as it rises over the savannah of the Amboseli plain. Return to Nairobi in the afternoon, where your safari ends. Rise early for a final morning game drive, enjoying the African sun as it rises over the savannah of the Amboseli plain.

Some of the biggest elephants with huge tusks are found in this park. We saw plenty of elephant herds and bug tuskers up close. Views a of mount kilimanjaro are awesome if you get the weather just right.

wildlife is amazing and easily accessible. Without seeming like a "zoo" so much wildlife is to be seen immediately outside the hotel and with Kilimanjaro as a backdrop

We visited Amboseli in early May and stayed at Ol Tukai. The park is very nice and easy to spot animals. The Mount Kilimanjaro offers a great backdrop to the park. We saw elephants, deers, lions, zebras, wildebeest giraffes and many birds. Recommended.
