vast open savannahs and a skyline dominated by the mighty Mt Kilimanjaro

Amboseli National Park makes for a wonderful safari experience, with plains traversed by wildebeest, lions, hyena and big-tusked elephants. As well as wildlife, the scenic beauty makes this one of Kenya's prettiest parks, with vast open savannahs and a skyline dominated by the mighty Mt Kilimanjaro.

A short flight from Nairobi, Amboseli is one of Africa’s finest safari locations with exceptional wildlife viewing in an enchanting setting. The 40,000-hectare park is largely dry, but peppered with a handful of permanent swamps and lakes that draw animals from all over the park.

The wildlife of Amboseli is both diverse and abundant. See herds of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle and Masai giraffes traversing the plains whilst the big cats lounge in the shade or stalk their prey. You might even spot the rare gerenuk and oryx on a game drive. Bird watching is also very rewarding here, with a variety of beautiful water birds and unique species.

The stars of the show however are undoubtedly the African elephants, made famous by the work of Dr Cynthina Moss who has been studying Amboseli’s large herds of elephants since 1972. With numbers in excess of 1400, Amboseli is considered the best place in Africa to get up close to these gentle giants.

We recommend the private conservancies within the park as they offer the same great wildlife but without the crowds. Highly trained and qualified guides will lead the excursions and share their vast knowledge of the bush with you.
