Amboseli - Elephants and Kilimanjaro

Written on: November 18, 2014   |   I visited in July 2014 This is a flat dry area with wetlands from mountain water runoffs. It is a gorgeous area with thousands of wildebeest roaming the plains. The area is reasonably small and easy to navigate with our Land Rover. Elephants and hippos are the main sightings here, along with breathtaking views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and sunsets. But it is the wetlands that are the most exciting, simply because most of the animals congregate there. So sightings are numerous and plentiful. Also, because of the water area, birds species are plentiful and easy to spot and photograph. The travel times to and from the lodge are not long and the lodge selection is wonderful....from the very reasonable to the expensive.
There is something for every budget.

You will see wild elephants and other animals at close range. Mount Kilimanjaro is very clear. An open savannahs park easy to locate animals. I would highly recommend a very early morning drive; this will ensure you get to see most of the wild animals. While in the park, always view the animals while inside your vehicle, only alight at designated spots, safety first! read more

Amboseli National Park 'packs' it all in one package--big game, bird watching and cultural safaris. Being a semi-arid region Amboseli is amazing because it has water bodies that sustain life all year round.
This is a must-visit safari destination for anyone visiting Kenya and wishing to see soak-in the beauty of nature and wildlife. read more

We had a great time in Amboseli. The ease of spotting wildlife was fun. There were group upon groups of elephants and sometimes very close to our vehicle.

We saw lions, a leopard and a cheetah family with three young cubs, very beautiful. The landscapes are awe-inspiring with excellent photo opportunities.

Amboseli is a wonderfull park and two nights are jus... read more

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

We experienced a real sand storm which was quite an experience. But the large number and availability of the elephants make it a special place to visit.
