Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park is lies in the shadows of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. 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.

Amboseli National Park encompasses dry lake beds, savannah woodland and extensive swamps constantly fed by springs emanating from the mountain. The water and seasonal lakes attract a wide variety of bird and animal life, in particular herds of elephant. Amboseli is one of the best parks in Africa to observe family groups of elephants and large bull elephants at close quarters

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 has over 80 different mammals to be found ranging from tiny (and rarely seen) spectacled elephant shrew to the huge to the huge bulk of the African elephant. Few visitors will go home without superb elephant pictures with Kilimanjaro as a backdrop. There are over 400 bird species.

Apart from game viewing in Amboseli National Park, 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
