Wildlife watching in view of Africa’s highest mountain

Amboseli is a land of giants, where huge herds of elephants stand strong against a dramatic backdrop of Africa’s highest mountain: Mount Kilimanjaro. Easily accessible and with effortless wildlife viewing, this popular national park defies its size and offers an impressive safari experience.

  • One of Kenya’s smaller game parks, its ecosystem is primarily savannah – and the low-lying vegetation means that the game viewing here is excellent, as the wildlife is easy to spot.
  • Maasai villages and cattle ranches surround the park, so there are opportunities to visit Maasai communities and get an insight into the local culture.
  • Although Mount Kilimanjaro is in neighbouring Tanzania, here is where you’ll find some of the best and most dramatic views of Africa’s highest mountain.
  • For birdwatchers, the best months to see migratory birds are from October to January.
  • Amboseli can be combined with a safari in Tsavo West which gives you a real variety of landscapes in which to spot wildlife.
