Amboseli National Park
Nicknamed the “Land of the Giants”, Amboseli is where you will come face to face with the largest land animal, the African Elephant, as they leisurely graze on the plains with Mount Kilimanjaro
Nicknamed the “Land of the Giants”, Amboseli is where you will come face to face with the largest land animal, the African Elephant, as they leisurely graze on the plains with Mount Kilimanjaro as a unique backdrop! Weighing in at anything up to six tonnes and standing 4 metres high, the opportunity to observe a full herd is a rare and overwhelming experience. The park is the permanent residence of over 900 of these graceful creatures – and has become internationally acclaimed as the perfect place to observe the intricacies of their behaviour. The rest of the Big Five are also equally at home at Amboseli – you will get to see lions, buffalo, leopards and even the critically endangered black rhino.
Just 160 miles from buzz and activity of Nairobi, the tranquil atmosphere and low-lying nature of the landscape ensures that Amboseli provides you with a perfectly unobstructed view of the animals – ensuring both great game viewing and marvellous photo opportunities. Amboseli is also good for bird watching, with over 400 species to discover.
The Park is situated in a dry area that receives very little rain. However, streams from Mount Kilimanjaro surface through the porous soil of the park and create an oasis of swampy wetlands; it’s this stark contrast between the lush green of the park and the dry and dusty surroundings that give the park its startling beauty.
The view of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, is what great postcards are made of; get your stunning photos of the mountain at dawn and dusk, when the clouds have lifted and the mountain is at its best.
