Amboseli National Park


Under Kilimanjaro’s watchful eye


Arid earth extending as far as the eye can see and vibrant oases of swamps teeming with life from the 40,000-hectare Amboseli National Park. In the distance, Mount Kilimanjaro’s expansive base culminates in its snow-covered peaks seen rising from the earth across the border. The dry months’ bare vegetation offers the perfect environment for relatively unobstructed views of the park’s inhabitants. 

Guests can stay in any of the luxury Amboseli Lodges in Amboseli while they explore the tracks that stretch out across the plains of the park. While an array of large game and a list of over 300 bird species populate the park, getting close to herds of free-ranging elephants is Amboseli’s claim to fame. These gentle giants share the land with the semi-nomadic Maasai people, the custodians of the land who are always willing to share their customs with guests on village visits.

After the Masai Mara National Reserve, Amboseli National Park is the second most-frequented in Kenya. It offers some of the best views of Mount Kilimanjaro just across the border, and of the free-ranging African elephants that are subject to the longest ongoing elephant study in the wild. Visitors are warned that malaria is found in the area and the necessary precautions should be taken before visiting.
