Best views of Mount Kilimanjaro

Written on: October 16, 2014   |   I visited in January 2014 Amboseli National Park is the best place from which to view snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro! Its primary vegetation consists of grasslands, lush acacia forests, and ever-wet swamplands. It is home to some of the largest elephant herds and affords visitors magnificent views of the mountain and elephants.
It's a veritable A paradise for any avid photographer.
Set in rolling savannah scenery, it is dwarfed by the presence of the snow-capped peak, Kibo, at 5,896 meters. It truly is Africa's highest free-standing mountain. Other than the BIG FIVE one can spot cheetah, giraffe, baboon, gazelle, hippo and wildebeest to name but a few. There are also over 400 species of birds, all manner of reptilian, flora and fauna.
Amboseli is truly the land of giants. This is a place of here the horizons stretches into the furthest distance and become one with the sky. It is the way... one imagines and pictures "Africa"

Amboseli National park, although small, offered amazing interaction with elephants as well as other animals. Morning and afternoon they would come from or go to the water. Had great very close up encounters. The park can be experienced in just a day and a bit. Any longer and you'll be going over the same areas. read more

Crowned by Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak, the Amboseli National Parks is one of Kenya's most popular parks. The name "Amboseli" comes from a Maasai word meaning "salty dust", and it is one of the best places in Africa to view large herds of elephants up close. Nature lovers can explore five different habitats here ranging from the dried-up bed of Lake Am... read more

Amboseli is well-known as an elephants park. It's located at the bottom of Mt.Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain.

You shall expect to see the peak of Mt.Kilimanjaro very early in the morning if the clouds clears up for you.
It has two major entry gates one from the Namanga border with Kenya and one from the eastern part.
