Safaris in Amboseli National Park take place in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro and under the watchful eye of its many elephants

Your breath stills and the focus stirs as you ready yourself to capture that exact moment a herd of elephant crosses your field of view. Finally, the click of the shutter disrupts the otherwise silent air just as the snow-capped Kilimanjaro frames your perfect shot; your Amboseli safari isn’t just about the wildlife species you can tick off your list, it’s also about taking in the park’s epic backdrops as you do. Dusty plains dotted with acacia trees meet the deep greens of meltwater-fed marshes and swamps where elephants in large family herds wade elbow deep and a crash of hippos wallow, all with the world’s highest free-standing mountain as an ever-present and inspiring landmark. 

We love Amboseli and understand why you’ll want to return time and again to experience the fantastic game viewing and make the most of those iconic mountain views. We’ve hand-picked the best lodges and tented camps with the most knowledgeable guides who know exactly where to go to find the wildlife you’ve always dreamed of seeing. Our Kenya experts are on hand to tailor your safari so pop in store or give them a call.

  • 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.
